Time to go time to go time to go!!!!

My sister loaned us some bigger toys (walker, bouncy chair, etc.) when we had our son almost 3 years ago. We've tried to return them to her, but she doesn't have room. I'm grateful that she lent them to us, but we really don't have room for them either.

If she won't take them back, but she wants them for when (and if) she has another kid, what exactly am I supposed to do with them?

  • I can see that you are grateful but you really cannot do what your family member is asking of you. Than her again for the loan, then tell her politely but firmly that you don't have room to store her stuff.

  • Tell her that you don't have room for them either. That she needs to take them or you will have to sell them to make room.

  • Tell her sorry but you don't have the room either and ask her if there is someone else that can hold storage for her.
