How We Get Our Kids to Declutter Their Junk

10 people in a house = a ton of junk that just accumulates. I don't have to tell you; you're a mom and you know.

When the stuff begins to take over and Fletch and I can't stand it any longer, we round up the family hoarders and give them incentives to declutter their junk.


Decluttering in process

This time around the incentives went like this:

  • Find and give away/throw away 100 items = a Slurpee run
  • Find and give away/throw away 300 items = a frozen yogurt run
  • Find and give away/throw away 500 items = a movie in the theater

Giving and tossing

327 items collected and we are off to get some froyo! Decluttering done.
