RECLAIMING SPACE AFTER CHILDREN LEAVE HOME
Even the most organized of us will get to a point after years in the same home where we find ourselves somewhat overwhelmed by the things we've collected. Raising children attracts items that represent memories that make us smile or send us screaming from the attic and basement. Now that you are an empty nester, it's time to reclaim your space and do some purging. Why save all those art projects, sports trophies, posters, and collections of beanie babies, matchbox cars, baseball cards, etc.? One word of caution here. Don't purge the baseball cards. You'll never live it down -- believe me!
