    Kids and Clutter: Family Life Doesn’t Have To Be So Messy
    Carolyn Campbell

    Five years ago, I won the CHAOS contest sponsored by my local newspaper. CHAOS is an acronym for "Can't Have Anyone Over Syndrome," because my house was so cluttered and disorganized. When my sister suggested that my husband, Griff, and I enter the competition, I wasn't humiliated--I just laughed because we were so deserving. To walk through our house, my family automatically stepped over an assortment of clutter that included everything from cassette tape cases to diaper wipes. If a plastic toy part broke underfoot, we didn't even flinch. We were used to looking through piles of disarray to find a paper or pencil--any coupons we uncovered were already expired.
