Peter says eliminating clutter in your life is about more than just cleaning up your house. It's about cleaning up your life. "I think so many people fill their homes with things that just take over," he says. "And in Darius and Kristen's case … Darius came to the conclusion that he was treating his wife very much like a business partner."

"We were just partners raising kids," Darius says. "I think we talked through a lot of the clutter."

Now that their home and life are clutter-free, Peter says it's vital that Darius and Kristen take their new routine into the future. "If you don't model that life for your children, nobody else will."

The new routine has already rubbed off on their daughter Jamison. "The first night she came in and said, 'I want my room to look like your room,'" Kristen says. "So we've started with her room." Jamison has even donated to charity two tubs full of toys that she doesn't play with anymore.
