Girl doesn't take care of her things so they all leave

I'm looking for a book I loved as a child (Late 80's-early 90's) and would love to get for my own children. Here is what I remember.
The main character is a girl. She doesn't take good care of her things. One by one items in the house get fed up and leave (lots of personification!) Her favorite item, her pillow, sticks by her til the end. Of course, she learns that she needs to take better care of her things.

That's about all I can remember. Can anyone think of the title?

It might be "The House that Had Enough" by P. E. King. It's a picture book, a Little Golden Book.


I used to own this one myself.
