I am constanly trying to get my house under control. And well, it is a battle I am always losing...I am currently at my brother's house, where his wife keeps things very minimal. Yes, the boys still make messes here, but they are easier to clean, and she is more on top of dishes and what not each day.
I am not at the point where I can part with a lot of my things, and I do part with stuff, but seem to add to what we have just as fast, if not faster. I am a collector. I collect things, each of my rooms seems to revolve around this theme. Plus I get attached to things. For example my oldest son's toys. I can't get rid of them, I want his brothers to play with them, and I want to keep them for his kids. That would be fine and dandy if I wasn't so hung up on making sure his brothers each get new toys that were not played with the other siblings first. A part of me says I just need to store them, but the boys do play with them all!! Granted it means more stuff out and needing to be dealt with and picked up.
How do you deal with kid's toys and just stuff in general?
