Weekend Mini-Organizing Challenge: Toys/Games

weekend_challengesNeed some organizing motivation and inspiration, or a gentle nudge? Subscribe to my blog to receive mini-organizing challenges several weekends a month. They will be automatically emailed to you so you won’t have to remember to visit the blog.

Mini-organizing challenges are doable and will focus on de-cluttering a tiny area of your home.  If the weekend challenge “speaks” to you, then set your timer for 30 minutes and start organizing/de-cluttering. Stop when the timer goes off and enjoy the rest of your weekend knowing that you accomplished something!  Of course you may continue organizing if you have gained the momentum you were looking for.

Mini Challenge: Toys/Games    


Client’s Toy and Game closet “BEFORE”




Are you ready for the toys, games and craft supplies that the holidays (and adults with good intentions) shower upon your children?  Do you feel anxious just thinking about more stuff and their already cluttered rooms or closets?

Use this week’s challenge to cull and donate toys and games they have outgrown or no longer play with. Make sure all the pieces and parts are together before donating them so the receipient isn’t disappointed.

Regular toy editing is an important habit to teach your children.  Get them involved and take the kids with you when you drop their donations off at your favorite charity.  It might take longer, but you are teaching them essential life skills.
