I’ve been working really hard to Marie Kondo my house even though I haven’t even watched the show and I’m pretty sure that I was rectangle-ing my clothes long before she was so… yea… guess I missed my calling and riches on that one! BUT the idea of getting rid of things that don’t bring you joy is actually quite enjoyable! I can’t tell you how much joy the number of toys we have brings me. Oh, wait! I can! Z E R O. So bye-bye. Let’s tackle organizing the playroom!
When I had my first daughter, I thought we would only have wooden classic toys and I was set on that. Did it happen? Not at all. People gave us all these plastic things and stuffed animals and toys that lit up and made TONS of noise. I was not amused. But I couldn’t fight it.
AND they just kept coming…
And you would think that people understand you have ridiculous amounts of things from your first child when you have your 2nd, but then they all just say “oh she needs new too!”
I strongly disagree.
LET IT GO
So the toys just double and triple and take over….
Well not anymore… I have successfully taken 3 carloads full of items that didn’t bring me joy i.e. donations (which included things other than toys too) since the beginning of the year. And I now drive an Acadia so…. that’s a lot of sh**!
And in the midst of getting rid of things, I also took the time to try to organize a little bit. And by a little bit, I mean the playroom is now organized! YAY. But I (not the kids) organized it so I’m having to train the girls on where things are and where things go. I’m hoping to not have to continue this training FOREVER so I created a few tags for the toy bins so they can figure it out on their own, or at least my 6 almost 7 year old can.
And the best part! I made blank ones that you can use! Or use the ones I made, if you organized exactly like me 😉
