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


Declutter 52 things in 52 weeks - Task 40

Board Games

We love board games in our home.  We play them regularly with the kids on the weekends or after dinner on Friday, it’s a great way to interact with the kids.  With Christmas round the corner it’s a good idea to have a look at what games you have, what the kids have outgrown and consider what you could get as gift for them for Christmas.

I keep the kids board games in the expedit unit in their toy room (top right).  All smaller card games etc are kept in the baskets on the lower shelves.

Todays task is to:

Sort through your board games purge games:

  • that are broken and can’t be fixed
  • pieces missing that can’t be replaced
  • that you haven’t played in years
  • double up’s (we had a few double up of card games)
  • the kids have outgrown and you know you won’t play in the future

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
