Clutter Can Cause Accidents

One thing that many people don't realize is that clutter can cause accidents.  I saw a couple of episodes of Hoarders a year or two ago.  One man wouldn't get rid of his clutter and his wife slipped and fell down the stairs because of it.  I think that was the last straw that got them to find help.  If you have kids at home, this is more of a challenge than for those who don't.  Having 5 kids, I have stepped on my share of Legos. Accidents can happen, no matter how hard we try, but we will be less likely to have them if we take precautions and do our part by keeping this picked up.  

Take some time this week and look around.  Do you have piles of stuff stacked up high that could fall on someone?  Do you have toys all over the floor that someone could slip on?  Are there things around that someone might trip on or run into in the dark?
