Any advice would be great. I have 7 kids and just can't seem to keep the clutter under control.
What are good ways to get things under control the less crap around here the better.

I went to college at the Art institute for interior design and professional organizing was part of our coursework. I went to a seminar from the APO too... so from what I learned-putting it to actual practical use with FAMILIES... you cant do too much at once. That's the biggest thing.. because its easy to become overwhelmed. Do one room at a time, even if it takes two days a room. Purge and sort into three piles: keep, store, donate. Dont get rid of things if you dont want to.. but be practical about what you really use. Have you used it in the past 6 months? If not its either seasonal, or not worth keeping.
Storage bags are really nice for seasonal stuff because you can shrink it all down, it stays clean and fresh, and it takes up WAY less room. I store our winter wardrobes in bags in boxes out of the way, and summer wardrobe in the winter.. that way we always have room for our clothes.
