I like to do toy box cleaning every couple of months. I send to charity some toys that my children have out grown. I throw away any broken toys that can't be fixed. I am going to have three toy boxes for each of my children. Toy box one will be in the lounge and toy boxes tow and three will be in my children's bedroom. Each toy box will have ten toys in it. A train set for example would be considered one toy. There will be a photo album showing toys one to thirty. If one of my children wants a new toy they must send to charity a old toy they don't want anymore.

My problem is finding space for everything. lol. My daughter has so many toys, and things that I am running out of room to put them all. I don't know what I am going to do at christmas time, when I have more things that I need to find room for. I can't really through anything out because she is only one years old, and pretty much plays with everything that she has. So I am stuck looking for places to put things.

I just moved last month and already did this. But I plan to do it a second time. As my daughter does seem to play with somethings. Those I will donate to the needy. Or give away on freecycle when it comes closer to Christmas.

I do this monthly because they have so many freakin toys its unbelievable!!! My mother buys them toys everytime she takes them overnight. And im not talking about expensive or good quality toys, im talking about old useless toys that come together in a huge bag. Drives me insane, but keeps them quiet when they are with her I guess. LOL. I wouldnt mind so much of she would just keep them all at her house instead of sending them home with the boys.
