The holidays are over and this year my son’s playroom has been bombarded with new toys. What to do with all those toys! I tried my hardest to tell the grandparents to limit their purchases but the response is always the same, “but he’s our only grandchild”. As I sit in our playroom I just feel overwhelmed by all the toy clutter!
Now is the perfect to start fresh! 2017 is going to be the year of organization for me, or so I hope. Starting before the year begins gives me a leg up on the goal. I have my boxes ready to tackle the clutter. I enjoy being able to donate my gently used toys to Goodwill knowing that other children will find the same enjoyment out them as mine did.
Don’t just stop at the playroom, my journey takes me beyond toys. I sort through clothes, shoes, mounds of books, stuffed animals and baby items. Getting a leg up on the clutter allows my son to enjoy his new toys and books.
As your children unwrap their holiday toys, think about donated those that aren’t played with anymore to Goodwill.
