We seem to accumulate a lot of things. And sometimes I find it overwhelming, the amount of toys and tiny little trinkets we have everywhere. It almost seems like they multiple during the night and then scatter themselves around the house with reckless abandon…..maybe that’s going too far, but I think you get the point-we have too. much. stuff.
I am in the process of starting a new habit for us as a family: getting rid of our stuff. We now have a medium-sized basket that sits downstairs and whenever a toy has repeatedly offended me by not finding a good place to
hide reside, he or she goes into the basket. I probably shouldn’t characterize and then punish the toys-it will traumatize the children. Okay, so not really, but I do want to get my children in the habit of giving things away, and I also have a deep fear of raising hoarders-so it’s a win-win situation.
Do you have any solutions for de-cluttering your home or life? Please share!
