May the sunshine send your kids outdoors….so that you can go through their rooms on your own???
No way! Don’t do it!
Teaching our kids from a small age about purging and de-cluttering will be a life skill that they will thank you for later in life.
Number #1 Keep those “Stuffies” under control. Rebecca’s rule – One comes in – Two go out! I know she’s harsh but her kids know that they really , really need to love something if they’re going to bring it home and into their rooms.
A pet net or animal clip are great organizing products to use that will still allow the kids to access their furry friends.
Number #2 Clothes, those darn kids never seem to stop growing! So every change of season this is an opportune time to go through their drawers and closets for clothes that can be donated to those less fortunate.
Remember if they barely fit them now, there’s no way they’ll fit next winter.
Tote and store off season clothes to make room for the present day outfits.
Number #3 Toys – Well let’s be honest it’s all the grandparent’s fault , isn’t it?!
Have your little one go through their toys with you. Anything broken or missing pieces? – Out it goes!
Contain all those precious small bits in small plastic containers so that it’s easier to label and clean.
Now….you’ve worked hard so go out and play!
