She's 2 years old and has this box that she will stuff things in... any where from a sippy cup to blankets... and its not just boxes she will stick things in bags and dresser drawers... idk what to do... its getting out of hand.. today I emptied out 2 boxes, a back pack and 3 grocery sacks full of random crap... is it normal for 2 year olds to be doing this??? Or is it just my DD?

I think it's normal. Sonia turned 3 today and she does this. Before bed I have to destash her bed and empty out her dresser drawer. My son, who is 20 months, also has a hidey hole. The remote regularly dissapears into it, along with other random electronics.

While my kids don't do this, I do not think it is abnormal.  I'm sure it's fairly common. :)

Completely normal. LOL.

I also found that it is normal for them to line things up at that age too. My DD was obsessive about it.

This makes me feel better she has been doing it for about a year now. I thought it was cute at first until she started to want to carry her stash around with her lol now it's just annoying
