  • You see something cute and buy it, Aunt Susie sees something cute and buys it, Grandma sees 10 things cute and buys them, then you go to parties and get the junkie goody bag toys, maybe go to fast food places and get those toys, ahhhhhhhh

  • Because instead of buying things for yourself, you now buy them for your little one, and so does grandma, grandpa, aunties, and uncles.

  • It's insane how much stuff. And my older kids feel like they can't part with anything, even a toy that was clearly one of their baby toys.

  • I think one way is it can start with grandparents.

  • my kids are taking over the we try to go through their toys at least every 6 months or so toss out anything that is broken or missing pieces, donate things that they havent played with in the past 6 months or have outgrown and get rid of all of the fast food toys. It helps keep the clutter down some but they still have a lot of stuff!

  • Everyone buys way too much now a days trying to compete with someone esle and before you know it there is just too much stuff. You see something you just think they have to have and before you know it you have to try and weed out what's not important or they go through phases where they just have to have whatever and before you now it they haven't played with it much and want something new.
