Let's see, currently there are 5 of us living in our (just barely over) 1000 sq ft home. Within 1 yr, we will be living in a much larger 1500 sq ft home, with an additional large screened porch (so really more sq ft). My guys are 6 yrs, 3 yrs and 10 months old currently. We have saved every.single.thing between each child and decided this time that #3 is our last. I have given away many things and plan to sell all other strictly baby items at the yard sale I'm having in 2 weeks! However, my dilemma lies in toys....what do I keep and what do I sell? We're pretty good about tossing true junk toys and such, but with 3 boys....well, they have WAY more than we have room for....right now.
In the bigger house, we'll have much more room and could easily keep what they have inside our home now (I already have purged 2 large boxes of toys for the yard sale that are in storage). It's the "right now" home that we have no room for this stuff in....minus a few smallish things, they do play with all of it, maybe not every week, but at least every other week. Not to mention with the youngest guy....do I save any of it in case he may enjoy it? (That's all he has right now, things we saved from the first 2). In some ways, I feel like I should purge until things all fit better in this house, but will I regret that later?
