how paige gives housekeeping advice...

If you don't have enough room for a new baby, you need to get rid of some of your stuff.
If your pots and pans cupboard is always messy, get rid of some of them.
If a drawer doesn't close easily or a lid close neatly, you need to throw away some of what it contains.
If your child's closet won't stay neat, get rid of some of their clothes.
If your child is reading a lame book that contains the phrase, "i never thought about having a slammin' body before" & the recommended reading age for that "christian" literature is 8-12... chuck it.
14 years of being married to the ruthless purger that my husband is has trained me to begin to live simply...
i value that simplicity.
i find homes for the things i need, i keep what i love & make room for people by getting rid of stuff.

I love it!! So simple, so common sense, so perfect!! We're learning... definitely getting there, and very happy in the process. Feels good!

I'm a purger too.
I am contemplating getting rid of our dishwasher so our entry way is bigger and so then we could hold more kids around the table....but then we'd have to get rid of our coffee pot so there is more counter space for the dirty dishes....bahaha!
