Raising uncluttered kids - Part 1

We got carried away and talked so much about uncluttering kids this week that we had to chop the episode into 2 parts! 
Part 1 talks about why kids are cluttered and why it might be a good idea to change that. 
Tara and Bec discuss Peaches and Cream Barbie and some of the parenting techniques they've used to keep the clutter monster at bay.
