My kids are spoiled. They have so many toys books games educational supplies. Our home is largish and can fit it all but I'm really sick of walking all over the toys and picking them up with them only to have them back and spread out everywhere. I could move all their toys into a spare room but I'd rather have the room to have my own spot to try and get back into selling on ebay. I'm toying with just taking all the toys and having them placed on shelves in the shed. If I left only some matchbox cars out they would be fine, I'm sure. What would do? What do you do?
They play with their toys but the ones I put into closets and under the bunk pull out trundle dont see the light of day anymore, But yet there are still so many toys out and they only get put away when I do clean them up or enforce clean up time, which is a real battle right now. I can't just donate it all because it's nice stuff, or course right, and i used to sell things online and that's the goal again, but that can't happen until i get this house under control.
I feel like the clothing and toys are drowning me and it's easy to just stick it all into a huge box in frustration but then i know i'm stuck with the task of organizing it again because it kills me to just donate them when I know they are worth money. would a toy library work? They already basically have one but the toys just sit there unless I take them down and rotate them and that just doesn't happen. My oldest is 6 so I can get him involved in the process but then again I feel like he doesn't need to be involved.
Maybe if i took all the toys and put them on my shelves in the ebay/craigslist room and said they were for sale they would play with them and take better care of putting things back when they should. One box down, one box back type of deal? But then that kind of defeats the purpose i feel. I don't know what to do!
