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


Declutter 52 things in 52 weeks - Task  42

Kids Toys

Bit of a kids theme these past few tasks, but this is good with the lead up to Christmas.  Especially going through and seeing what toys the kids have and what you could put on the Christmas Gift List.

I shared with you photo of the kids toy room in a previous task, this is where they keep all ‘shared’ type toys.  They also have space in their bedrooms for all their own toys.

Mr 11 keeps his toys in his wardrobe, read more here.

Don’t forget you could adapt a toy rotation system if you have excess toys, read more here.

Todays task is to:

Sort through the kids toys and purge toys:

  • that are broken and can’t be fixed
  • pieces missing that can’t be replaced
  • that they haven’t played with at all this year
  • the kids have outgrown and no longer want to play with

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, love this! I’m inspired, I’ll be purging our little boys toys and outgrown clothes to make way for Christmas. We will donate his toys and clothes, some hardly played with or worn, and get the toys out of the lounge room and into the spare drawers in his wardrobe. No more clutter or tripping over things…now to get him to clean up after himself!

Thanks for the motivation! 😉

Ooh good on you Edwina! It feels so good to donate old toys. I actually did it with my kids last year and we donated to the children’s hospital! The kids loved the idea of giving toys they no longer played with to the children’s hospital. ~ Kate
