STUFF-CONTROL 101 - After dealing with the accumulation of way too much stuff during a recent move, Saren figured out some rules of thumb to keep stuff from taking over again in her new house. She also tried a "stuff fast" which resulted in some great side effects. . .
How to keep your house clean (not picking up, but maintaining a clean house) in just 15 minutes a day. This woman knows her stuff!

The basic idea is to rid your house of 40 bags of stuff during the 40 days of Lent. Lent is a time of renewal, sacrifice, self-control, almsgiving and prayer.

It's a way to reflect on how much we have and what we actually need.
