decluttering the toys
I am on a serious mission this week to declutter our house. I like to think I live pretty edited, but when I see our 3 areas of play in the house, I know I am kidding myself. I couldn’t imagine adding more toys to the mix without removing some first and somehow I filled 6 shopping bags in about 3 hours when the boys weren’t looking. Isn’t it awesome how great you feel when your house looks more open, more organized? I really think we are sending mixed messages to our kids when we keep their playrooms jammed with “stuff”. How can I get annoyed that it’s always a mess when I keep filling it? Are you feeling the same way I am??
Liked this great post at Simplified Bee about deciding what to keep, hold, give… perfect timing for me! I also think this book Pretty Neat sounds perfect for all of us- makes me feel better about nothing ever being perfect.
Finally, I have been grappling with how to organize legos and I can’t come up with an answer that makes sense. Last night I opened the board game Creationary which is made by LEGO and I thought to myself– “let’s see how they do it!” – turns out the organize by color. Food for thought.
