7 Days of Purging/Organization: Day 5- Toy Room

As I was going through the toys in this room, I realized that I had already purged it not that long ago. Isaac had been complaining about picking up the toys in his room, and I did the age old threat “If you don’t pick up your toys RIGHT NOW, then I’ll throw them away!” How many parents do this and don’t follow through with it? I’ve told him this numerous times and it never works. So, at the end of my patience, I walk into the kitchen, pick up a trash bag, and start throwing toys in it!
He raced around grabbing the toys that were important to him and put them back in bins, while I angrily threw the other toys in the bag. After it was done, I put the toys in the closet thinking I would give them back to him when he was good. But you know what? He NEVER missed them! So now they’re going to be donated to a thrift store where someone who wants them can have them!

7 Days of Purging/Organizing: Day 1-The Kitchen

So the other day I was browsing through Pinterest when I saw a post by Ruth Soukup on her blog Living Well, Spending Less.  This got me browsing her blog to see all her tips, and I loved her organizing and cleaning tips.  She did a really long series of cleaning her house, and I thought “Why not purge everything in my house I don’t need, and then reorganize it all?”.

Well with 2 kids, one being a 3 year old rambunctious boy and the other a breastfeeding 5 month old, things can be hard to do.  So I decided to break up each room into it’s own day.  So begins the 7 days of Purging/Organizing!
