Declutter Duggar Style

'Tis the season for spring cleaning! With so many kids, how do the Duggars conquer clutter?

"I make a master list of all the things that need to be done," writes Michelle in her latest TLC Parentables post, "Learn How to Spring Clean Like a Duggar."

Then she creates a timetable and divides the work between each member of the family.

"We team up and we tackle big projects, either trying to get chunks of them done at a time or scheduling it as a full-day project," says the mom of many.

Michelle recommends using keepsake boxes. Each Duggar child has a keepsake box to store personal mementos. "Some of my kids are very sentimental and they want to hang on to everything, and others have an easier time throwing things out," explains Michelle.
