    We do not live in one of the two zones that were evacuated. Zones A and B were evacuated. We are in Zone C. DH had more faith in our house than I do. But I have friends who lived through Andrew. I...

    I left Miami today with my kids. My husband refused to leave the house. My father and brother flew down to Miami this morning to accompany me and my three kids up north in my van. I'm so sorry my...

    Okay, update: I got the book you (ejchase) recommended and am up to the chapter on toys. Halfway through the chapter, I got up and moved a few more baskets of toys from the kids' play area into the...

    It sounds like you are on the right track--as you unpack, since you won't have much storage, you'll find space for the things you know you truly need and want. The rest, as it sits in a box for an...

    Definitely worth a try! So far, so good over here with the "toy vacation"/toy detox. Kids started school this week so they're busy anyway. Plus yesterday we were all about the eclipse so hardly any...

    Yes, I'm thrilled! As for the other homes with little toy clutter, they are homes of immigrants and designers, both groups that tend (in my experience) towards minimalism. In fact, one of the girls...

    Another citizen of Blandsville here! I love my boring life. I love getting the same meal at each restaurant I visit regularly (I get to go to a lot of work lunches). I love my routine. I love my...

    Reviving this old thread because I have made some new progress! Awhile ago (last year maybe) I started reading simplefamilies.com, which is written by a mom of young kids (younger than mine). The...

    Oh, so sorry to hear about your dog! I relate to her since I'm always cold ;) That's a great idea to keep something special to remember her while donating the rest. Sweet.

    Wow! I'm impressed. I have not completely finished--kind of petered out in the miscellaneous categories and never got to memorabilia. I even cut down on some of the kids toys a while back, but we...

    Yesterday I took a bag with some of my kids school uniform shirts to goodwill. They were usable but a bit downtrodden, and I kept not using them (I have plenty of shirts left). It helps in getting...

    Keep on trucking! It's so worth it.

    Last summer, I took a week off of work and did a great amount of Kondo-ing in that week (clothes, books, papers, bathroom adjacent closets), and then my home...

    We're a family of 5, with three kids 10 and under, in a 1300 sq ft home, 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. All kids share a room. So I would definitely say that what you describe sounds like plenty of...

    Neat. I'll have to look for that later this year. She was just on the Tim Ferris podcast--a friend of mine who follows him asked me "is this that author you love?" I had to laugh and say YES! I...

    Haven't been able to get folks to get on board with the "gifts other than toys" except for shifting people to books--and we have a ton of books. I went through my kids books this weekend with their...

    I realized after posting that I hadn't updated since December. Well, I had managed to reduce some toys before Christmas. But not as much as I'd have liked. So this project continues.

    Toys still abound in my house. But I've made some more headway. This past week, I decided to move all the toys that were in their bedroom into the back bedroom, which is adjacent to the family...

    I biked to work for the first time today. I live only about 3 miles from my office, and it's a fairly straight shot on mostly residential streets (except the last part which is a bit city). I'm not...

    I was also one to keep my "nice" clothes for "someday" but found myself wearing crap regularly and "saving" even my clean t-shirts for someday. Marie Kondo's method has definitely helped me avoid...
