Putting your toys away is something that many new parents are not prepared to do and it is an important first step in decluttering your home. Your toys may be the most neglected objects in a room as a lot of people just throw them in a cupboard or on the floor. Once you have decided what is to be kept in your room and put it somewhere safe your toys will begin to look much better organised. Put your toys in their own little box, drawer or somewhere where they will be out of reach of little hands.
Another way to make sure that you get rid of all the toys in your room is to make a comprehensive list. Write down exactly what you have and where they are. This could include a detailed list of the toys that go with each other, your bedding, furniture and other belongings such as your wardrobe. The more comprehensive list you make the less chance there will be of any confusion at Christmas time as to what is available and which toys you need to get rid of.
A good way to make sure that you get rid of all your toys is to take pictures of them when they are still new so that you can show them off to everyone. Many people throw away very good toys simply because they don’t like them or don’t like what they see in them. Also make a list of any toys that your child has been asking for over again. If they are always wanting one or two of the same toy brands and you know it is not coming near the others on your list then you need to make a change.
