Clear the Decks!

With Christmas drawing closer I find myself in a toy quandary. Clearly we need to make room for new ones but which ones do I pick to get rid of? Fifi was asked, she is so ruthless she literally put all her toys apart from her baby dolly into the bag to go. Since I thought that she may regret this I have simply put them all back. Toddler Boy was asked, he put all of Fifi’s toys into the bag as well, so I took them out again.

It seems that the decision making process may once more be left up to me. Thus I have developed a strategy; I will throw away everything with tiny bits of plastic. That’s one landfill site filled up then. Why is there a need for all these tiny bits of plastic anyway. It wasn’t like this when I was young. I know this as I still have about 90% of my toys. They are solid, safe and distinct toys. Unlike the majority of things today which seem in some cases to be deliberately built shoddy.

Do you have any strategy for clearing the decks this year?

    Im gonna be going through freddies toys and making three piles Broken/shoddy to be thrown away, too babyish to go up into the attic and keep. 🙂

    All broken, dangerous and unplayable goes to the bin without a word.

    Anything with &#39;bits&#39; except lego and Playmobile doesn&#39;t even make it into the house in the first place.<br /><br />Be ruthless, that is my advice
