Ok, thanks to everyone who has commented on toy organization.
I have more specific questions now. How do you know if you have too many toys? I went and bought two large storage tubs (1 pink and 1 purple) and two smaller ones for markers and stuff. I already have a few somewhere in the house as well.
So, this is what we have:
Massive amounts of dress up stuff- jewelry, shoes, purses, hats...
Barbies-my old ones in a container already
several different types of blocks
Little People Dollhouse and Barn plus the many pieces that I find all over
Lots of books, the nice ones on shelves
kitchen set with dishes and two tea sets
coloring books, crayons, markers, playdough
puzzles and games (board type)
large basket of 'baby' toys
a plastic vanity
a rocking horse
chalkboard and chalk
two doll 'Heads' with hair to play with
various other random bits of stuff
I would say what they like the most is the tea sets, strollers and dolls, blocks, dress up stuff, books and anything arts/crafts. (all playdough, markers etc.) So should I stick with these categories and sort it accordingly?? Store the rest? The love getting the puzzles and games out too...But, I really, REALLY want to end the toy madness. It's everywhere I look and creates brain clutter. So, I am planning to tackle some of it after the girls wake up, which means i gotta go and finish cooking while they're asleep.
Thanks wonderful women of God!!!!
