We live in a 2bdrm apt. It's not very big, but for the price it's way bigger than what we were seeing when we were looking. When our second son was born and began sleeping through the night we decided to let the boys share the bigger bedroom instead of trying to fit them both in the smaller bedroom. The big bedroom really is almost twice as big with a bigger closet so it just made more sense to us. The problem is, even with all that space they have way too many toys! Each side of the closet has a plastic tote full, two toyboxes outside of the closet, an armoire full of books, puzzles, and games, a clear stack of 3 drawers full of stuff, 2 wagon full of stuff... Plus a twin bed, kiddie armchair, desk, and crib
As it is now it takes quite a bit of work to keep things tidy and organized, but it's not impossible. Since Christmas we have gotten rid of about 4 trashbags of toys that were either broken or no longer played with. My 5yo has helped me go through his things each time and has let go some surprising things so I'm very proud of him. The thing is, he has been saving his allowance for the Imaginext Batcave and it has a million accessories. He's got enough for it but I feel like there isn't room. Is it fair to make him get rid of even more stuff when he plays with just about everything that's left? Or is it time for me to invest in better storage options? What do you use in your kids' rooms? How ofter do you sort and toss/donate their toys?
