I guess part of it is just living in a house with 5 kids and having saved the older kids toys for the younger kids and then adding to the toys we are in to serious overload.
I have been working hard over the past few weeks to thin down the toys but maybe it is just me but the toys seem to multiply every night the stuffed animals are the worst.
I read in a post earlier just to have 2 large totes that you rotate toys through and I started to think maybe we are in way over lode of toys since we have 2 rooms plus 2 large closets that hold toys puzzles and games and the books are in the family room on the bookcase stacked double deep so all in all we have approx 120 feet of childrens books
I have a problem that I have a very hard time geting rid of toys when I think that the kids may be able to use them for this or that or somthing else then we keep adding to them.
honestly how do you limit your toys other stuff

Get rid of things that are packed away in closets. Either sell them or donate them. Honestly, it is hard to get rid of things. I'm the type of person that gets attached to "stuff". One thing you have to remember is being overwhelmed is not positive. There are so many toys that the children can't clean up by themselves and there aren't specific places for things, they are overwhelmed and it's too much. Also remember that when your children have too much they value very little. Teach them the value of having things by reducing the things they have. It's also awesome to teach them how to give to others that may not have as much. :)
