As my son continues to grow, the accumulation of stuff grows. Kids are constantly outgrown clothes, books, games, and toys. Finding storage solutions is one of my favorite things (yes, I am a nerd), but sometimes it just masks the problem. I found that even though G’s toys were put away nicely, he had a hard time playing because of pure excess. I decided to give toy rotation a try, purely because I couldn’t get myself to donate his toys. I thought it seemed like a lot of work, but I decided to give it a try with just a few toys that G had seem to have lost interested in. My thought was two of things could happen. He would either asking me for the toy I stored or he wouldn’t even notice. As you can image, the latter was true.

We have been sharing our favorite finds this month on Instagram. The items include anything from our favorite places to our favorite short cuts to our favorite podcasts.

We did it! Together we decluttered over 100 items in 10 days! The truth is it wasn’t as hard as we thought it would be and we both admitted that after the challenge we were going to keep going.
If you missed the last blog post, we challenged ourselves to get rid of five things per day in 10 different rooms. The method was to take the task of decluttering and break it down into manageable daily tasks. The quicker you found five things the faster you were done.
We posted all of our progress on our Instagram account (instagram.com/fromonecuptothenext/). Read More
