One of my many goals is to become organized. Having less makes keeping it in order so much easier. Convincing kids that having less is better is not easy. I purchased an 18 gallon bin for each child to help them kids sort and organize their things they wish to hold on to. Once it is filled they have to throw away enough items to make room for more items. It is there choice what to keep and what to toss, as long as it fits in the bin. The folder goes in the bin to hold any pictures, notes and other paper items they wish to keep.
