This week we're tackling paper clutter. We've all heard people talk about technology advancement, virtual homework and paperless societies. But it seems all this technology has just made it easier to generate paper and it all lands on our kitchen counters. We'll expand on last week's tip for reducing clutter and look at a simple plan for handling incoming paper. After we control our clutter I'll share a couple tips for planning better graduation parties.
Then we're getting some insights on parenting from a completely different perspective - personal growth. We're interviewing Susan Stiffelman, author of Parenting with Presence, about parenting and the amazing journey it can take us on to find greater peace, joy and personal development. Susan says that even though most parents subscribe to the notion that inner growth happens as a result of daily meditation, mindfulness retreats, and inspiration from wise luminaries, it is actually their children who can be their greatest teachers. We'll find out what brought her to this conclusion and how we can harness these ideas to have a more peaceful and joyful household.
In Christmas Corner we'll continue our crafty Christmas series on DIY Christmas wreaths including a simple design that can be used to compliment any theme from chic to country.
