My definition of purge – sell, donate, repurpose or throw away items as you see fit


Declutter 52 things in 52 weeks - Task 18

Organise stuffed Toys

Ooh my kids love their soft toys, I find it totally adorable that each of them still sleep with at least one toy.  My darling Miss 9 has two little teddies she can’t sleep without, and boy if one of her siblings hides it or says something nasty about it she gets so defensive, it’s so sweet!

But… stuffed toys can pile up.  Both Miss 11 and Mr 11 have dust mite allergies, the allergy affects them both different, so I have to often wash stuffed toys and because of this we keep the teddies to a limit.

Todays task is to:

Purge any soft toys the kids don’t need and I’m going to throw in the extra task of cleaning those that you do keep.

How many items have you been able to purge today?

I would like to see a photo of your purge pile on Instagram, use the hashtag #declutter52

Love your website!!
I saw a great idea on what to do with soft toys and teddies (especially ones that are a bit sentimental and you can’t bear to part with) – use them to fill a beanbag instead of beans. Just be careful a random Barbie doesn’t get caught up in there – that could be painful!!
