It is almost that time of the year again where Santa is going to bring in some gifts to the
children around the world.
And in order for us to have a room for those gifts - I talked my kids into purging some of their toys.
They agreed! When they did, it meant "some serious-toy-purging-business"!
So we started off in the playroom.
First process we have is I ask my son this phrase:
Keep or Give?
As for my daughter's, my son & I practically decided for her.
From the keep pile, we grouped the toys together then put them in baskets, bucket and bin.
For the give pile, we sorted as to where it should go.
the rest goes to Goodwill
Then off we went to the living room, yes! You've read it right - we have a bunch of toys in the living room.
For some reason, these toys just go down in the living room by itself and they go inside this ottoman.
These toys just don't want to stay in the playroom upstairs, idk why! lol!
First, we removed all the toys from the ottoman. Now that was overwhelming!
Look how much toys can this ottoman can hold! W-O-W!
We did the same process and I cheated a little bit.
Some toys that my son said to keep it but I thought should go,
I put it in the black trash bag that will go to Goodwill, so he will not see it.
Am I bad mom?
But at the end of our toy-purging process, we have a lot to give.
The good thing about this whole process is that, it makes me feel better knowing that there
are kids out there that can benefit from our toy-purging.
Oh by the way, the ottoman now looks like this.
Brought all the toys that were on the keep pile up back where they belong - the playroom.
And as you can see, only stuff toy, mask & a foot massager are left in the ottoman.
I hope we can keep it that way.
One important thing that I want to share to y'all when you are do purging is that you need to "be ruthless".
It sounds bad or negative but at the end of the process - your objective of getting rid of things will turn into sharing & giving.
Isn't it nice?
