Weekend Organizing Challenge: Summer Outdoor Toys


Need 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: Summer Outdoor Toys

Our garages are sort of a container for our vehicles (hopefully:) and our outdoor toys—the kid AND adult variety.

I don’t want you to get overwhelmed and bogged down with this weekend’s challenge.  Focus on one category: the outdoor summer toys.  What have the kids outgrown (bikes, scooters, etc.)?  Are there toys they are too mature for (tiny mowers and ride on toys)?  Edit and toss broken items.  Sell adult sporting equipment you no longer use (golf clubs you haven’t used in a decade).  You get the idea.  Just 30 minutes will make an impact and give you more space.  Enjoy your weekend!
