  • LOL. We moved across the country and I remember joking that we should just slap a Toy 'r' us sticker on the side of the moving truck, because that is what it was! We got rid of so much stuff, but we were left with mostly kids toys. It was crazy. I try to keep things cleaned up around here- but I still find strange things in weird places. The other night hubby and I climbed into bed, only to find a herd of Zhu Zhu pets had already taken over. *sigh* and when one of those damn things gets going... it's all over.

  • I swear my kid has more toys than I have possessions!! LOL, and I get rid of some on a monthly basis. He was an only grandchild for the first 5 years of his life and my parents spoil him so he has way too much stuff.

  • It helps if you can contain them to one space. We have a playroom where 95% of all toys stay!

  • My house used to feel like that now that my children are older and i am wiser i go threw toys get rid of stuff thats not played with and everything has to stay in there rooms or i will throw it out (i put it in the garage) They dont know that. But my children are 16, 14 and 8 so i think they are at the age of keeping there crap in there rooms.
