    Yeah you're right. I just need to make the decision to throw it out rather than wait until later. That's the hardest thing with nan buying ds stuff every week. It's usually useless toys (ie. Soft toys).

    I have been trying out the konmari method of folding clothes. It does free up more space in the drawers. Will get a pic later.

    I tried it with a few drawers of my DS dresser this afternoon and saved a ton of space yay....now to keep the youngest little monkey out as one of his favourite things is pulling out the clothes I have just put away 😝

    I have been preparing to move interstate and getting rid of loads of stuff. I've taken a few boot loads to the charity shop, sold some and posted some on local community/BSS pages for free and people have collected very quickly. Feels so good getting rid of it - the funny thing is I can't remember what I've donated/got rid of so I obviously didn't need it! One step at a time, good luck!

    Could u convince her to buy wooden toys? Or books? I hate soft and plastic toys! Great would love to see a pic. I need to do this in my girls drawers 😊

    Lol that's the only thing. Having them all folded so nicely then along comes a toddler and pulls them all out!! 😣

    This is such an awesome idea. I am totally doing this. My kids just constantly get stuff out, but hardly play with anything.

    Yeah I'm the same. I find it hard to recall what I've donated or thrown out.

    Maybe that will work for you? @AdornedWithCats

    Anything u want to get rid of but ur not sure try packing it away for a while and if u forget what's in there or you don't find u need it its time to get rid of it.

    I like the thought process of the konmari method. You look and what you want to keep and love or brings u joy, rather than what u want to get rid of. Then whatever doesn't fit into that category you let go of. Puts another spin on it 😊

    I got the KonMari book on kindle from Amazon for $10. And apparently she is pregnant/ just had a kid so lots of people are saying her advice may change!!
