Cut Kid Clutter

Here's a Good Housekeeping reader tip on how to cut kid clutter. (This lady must know what she's talking about because she's from Fort Worth...well, maybe.) Anyway, she says:

"Cut clutter by telling your kids that anything they don't put away during the week will be placed in the "Saturday Box" - meaning they don't get back a toy left out on Monday until Saturday. (To defeat rescue attempts, she keeps the box in the trunk of her car.) Usually the kids are so eager to hold on to their stuff, they put it away in 15 minutes."

I say give them about two seconds to put their toy up or it goes in the "Fort Worth City Trash" cart. I'm just kidding. I really think this lady has a pretty good idea.
