Peter Walsh's new book about clutter and how dangerous it is to our health is called, "Does this clutter make my butt look fat?" It's excellent!

I also use the flylady.net. It's great!! and Free!! I also like the idea of making her put everything in totes stacked neatly and agree with her that anything that overtakes your area you will have the right to throw out. If she wants to keep it; it must stay in her area in the tote when not in use. Hope this helps!

Ha ha! Been there, done that, got the t-shirt! Man, it might bug you but in the grand scheme of things, it doesn't matter as long as you love each other. Really. Just ask a lonely person.

call her mom and see if she can help your wife out with the clutter situation (or is her mom a clutter bug too?) if her mom is a clutter bug too you may just have to deal with it.

www.flylady.com this website/group has saved me! You just need to get her to read the first page and hopefully she'll understand that you love and not the stuff. This is going to take compassion and "baby steps" for both of you. Good luck.
