Question: I live with my parents they are MAJOR pack rats and wont throw out a thing, is there anyway that we can get more organised without throwing out a lot? I am prego and will soon have my baby, I will still be with them, they deserve more than the world for taking us in and I just want to do something nice for them... If you have a suggestion please let me in. Thax

Good Luck!!!! One packrat in a house is bad enough, Two is outrageous!! How did you escape?? There is a website that might help......but not quickly. www.flylady.com It's for people who aren't organized and need to break their housekeeping up into smaller but more efficient work. Obviously their not being able to throw anything away is a big hurdle. You can try the "Keep/Donate/Toss" boogie where you have 3 bins and each object is either kept and assigned a place for storage, donated to charity, or tossed never to be seen again. If you designate 30 per day to tackle this chore, it will get done eventually...........sigh. Problem is this is not YOUR stuff so you have no right to throw it away....until you inherit it. Sooooo, I suggest investing in a lot of plastic bins, filling them, writing what's inside of each on them and then stacking against the walls. I know one may or organized his garage this way but each bin has a letter of the alaphabet. For example the "S" bin held screws, screw driver, sandpaper, etc. You can point out fire hazard, mice hazard, falling junk piles, baby's natural tendency to grab items close at hand, but I really think you are fighting a loosing battle. Just because you are pregnant does not give you the right to order your parents to change their lifestyle...just because you did.

I'm 16 and 5'5 as well... You are the perfect weight, you have smaller feet, and you have a larger bra size but there's no average in that case. 16 year old girls have anywhere from A to C cup (maybe D) and that doesn't mean anything in relation to your height or anything.

if your're petie you can't expect to be the average size for anything lol. height also depends on your're parents genes!.... a 16 year old female should be about 110 pounds and about 5'4-5'6 average unless tallness is in genes.. shoe size goes along with height... i say about 7. i'm 19 and i weigh 100 and i'm only 5'3 and shoe size 7 7/12 .. everyone is different all goes back to genes

You are perfectly normal. Your body sounds like its in the right weight, height, bra size, etc. I would say youre exactly where you need to be at. Dont get skinier or more than 10 lbs heavier.

Organize the clutter. Group like things together. Get some boxes or make some piles. Ask them what they would like to keep and what can be thrown out. Anything that they don't need around all the time should be put in boxes and placed elsewhere. Clutter can cause a lot of stress and make it hard to relax. I would emphasize that point. I would start in one room and make my way around. My husband and I have to do this from time to time. The hardest part is getting started and going through the first time. It does get easier over time and if you stay with it.

Check out http://guitarcasesonline.com/acoustic-guitar-cases A good case will be the TKL Dreadnought 6/12 String Guitar Bag, Teal Trim – 5215 The site lists all the dimensions of the cases they showcase (although many gig bags don't have measurements, because they are naturally flexible.) Your guitar is a standard dreadnought size (less curvy than the standard acoustic guitar). There are a lot of Jumbo Guitar Cases, which may be the source of your confusion, as they would make your regular sized guitar seem small. And, by the way on the home page of the site, it tells you the standard names for the measurements you gave, which are the Depth, Body Length, (no standard term for the nut to bridge measurement), and Lower Bout.
