I saw this on the BHG website and thought it was pretty clever.



  • Clutter-Busting Habits

    Play a Game

    Make clutter-busting a family game. Write tasks on plastic balls. Each person chooses a ball, completes the task, then chooses another one. After 30 minutes, whoever has the most balls gets a prize -- like a no-chores day or control of the TV remote.

    -- Alicia Rockmore and Sarah Welch, authors of Pretty Neat: Get Organized and Let Go of Perfection
