School days are just around the corner. I am in the organizing mode and am preparing my child’s bedroom, study area and play area for the New Year. I have already given my son’s closet a clutter fix and wow was it packed.
This morning I tackled the toys that he keeps in his bedroom. Combined with the outgrown clothing from yesterday and the outgrown toys from today I had a whopping 13 large garbage bags full to donate!
I still have his play area in the family room/music studio area but I have really taken a big bite out of the clutter monster and am feeling pretty momma proud.
My son feels as if his room is already complete. However, there is one more area I need to address and that is his book collection. This is my chore for today and it will break my heart to donate books that I have read to my son over the past 7 years. However, I look forward to reading the new more complicated books as he grows.
Have your children accumulated too many toys that they no longer enjoy? I am sure there is some child somewhere that would love to get some new play time out of these wonderful items.
Simple Daily Challenge: Gather up all the toys your children have out grown, bag them and take them to the nearest shelter or donation center. I spent around 10 minutes going through my son’s toys and came out with so many still very nice items that will hopefully be enjoyed by a another little boy in the very near future.
I am moving forward and helping those in need. It feels really good and Little Guy is enjoying a more peaceful room. My goal is to have his room simple enough that he may make his bed in the morning without tripping on clutter and to make it simple enough that he can tidy his room in less than 5 minutes.
Question: Do you limit the amount of toys in your child’s room?
