Are You In Favor of Favors?

Reader Survey

Yesterday many of you told us what the most difficult thing to keep clean in your home was. The answers were fabulous and made us feel like we weren't alone in the fight against clutter. One response rang true with us and made us wonder — Are you in favor of favors? They are fun for a fleeting second and then they seem to pile up in drawers, under beds, in backpacks... everywhere! Thinking back upon my childhood years, I can't say that I honestly remember a single party favor I was ever given. They seem to be the norm at many parties, but are they doing you any good as a family? Do the little things just come home and get tossed around from location to location until they accidentally make their way to the trash?

How do you feel about favors? We're on board with things that can be eaten up, used up or worn out, but where do you stand? Let us know in the comments below!
