I’m answering some questions today:
How can I get projects done (like spring garage clean out, etc.) when it seems like I can barely keep up?
How do I handle extended family who don’t understand your decluttering efforts?
How do you best handle receiving gifts that you don’t want in your home?
What are your tasks for deep/spring cleaning? (On top of normal dusting, laundry, etc.)

I’m a bit late to the podcast comments for the week of May 9, but I had a thought others might find useful, as to the “no room to store” gifts issue. Your suggestions on how to handle the “after” of receiving the gift were fine, but my grown daughter came up with the best solution this past Christmas. She decided, on her own, that instead of material gifts to us, her son and husband, she’d give us “experiences” we could share with her. She put a lot of thought and planning into them, but wow, she hit the bulls eyes, between somehow managing to get tickets to the sold out road show production of Hamilton for us, a ski trip with her dad, a day at an amusement park for her son and some of his friends, a romantic weekend away and day of golf for her hubby, etc. We made great memories, without any adding new clutter to our homes !!
