My kids have way too much stuff. They have more toys than they need and too many to enjoy what they have. I keep saying that I'm going to weed some out...but I never do. I'm tired of looking at the den after they've been in there playing with friends. They tend to just throw stuff around and play with nothing. I think they will enjoy having fewer things and actually being able to find what they are looking for.
Today I started. My plan is to have it done by the end of the month. The problem is all the stuff that needs to be put back together. A bag of 100 mega is empty and the blocks are all over the room in different bins. I started by collecting all the little pieces of toys they never play with, things that are broken, and the coveted Happy Meal toys that get more attention than anything with a higher price tag...I filled a large garbage bag and threw it out. There's plenty more to be tossed. I would like to get the re-usable toys with tons of parts, all put back together so we can donate them in December. I'm weeding out all the stuff to be thrown out. I will then enlist the help of the kids to decide what to keep and what to donate. I have my fingers crossed that they will let go of the baby (toddler) toys.
Anyone wanna come help?
