Do you feel like you are buried in toys? If you have more then one kid, I am pretty sure you do!
When we had our first son, Thing 1 we didn’t have too many toys. I was pretty choosy about what we got. He didn’t even get a truck until he was over a year old.
When we had our second son, we had a good amount of toys from T1 and then T2 would get gifts of more toys and T1 was getting gifts too and suddenly we seemed like we were swimming in toys. I de-cluttered a bit as time went by.
Then we had our third son who inherited all his brothers toys and of course had his own. By now we had moved to a bigger house, so we gave him the biggest bedroom out of all the boys, because it holds 12 years worth of toys in it.
It was overwhelming to me and to him too.
Finally I got the inspiration I needed to really de-clutter his toys and simplify! Read my journey and see pictures here.

I have to say that the book Simplicity Parenting has been so helpful in encouraging me to take this step. Of course, being in the book club helped too! 🙂
I encourage you to simplify your toys. De-clutter and enjoy what toys you love even more!Pin It
