It took 3 years to actually make a play room in the basement.
How do you keep the toy clutter down? Do you:
1. Throw new Christmas toys away the day after Christmas

3. Tell them that children in India really DO need that annoying flute Grandpa wittled by hand (FOR SOME REASON I ATTACH SUCH SENTIMENTALITY TO THINGS! I CAN'T GET RID OF THINGS!)
4. I think it'd be a good idea to have someone come in to my house once a year, an impartial paid observer, and just tell them to throw away what doesn't look important.
I may be missing a birth certificate or two, but the rest?
I probably wouldn't miss the rest.
