I was chatting with a few folks on Twitter recently about “stuff” and how we tend to accumulate a lot of it. Sometimes we can feel like we are drowning in junk, especially if we don’t keep on top of it. And that causes undue emotional stress, not to mention the challenge of trying to maneuver around it all. The result inevitably is to throw things out, donate items to charity or re-purpose articles into fab new finds. When it comes to children’s items, this can sometimes be even more challenging. I always feel liked stuffies breed in the middle of the night and can’t believe how many toys exist in my home! Don’t get me started on clothing either, as that is a whole different ball of wax altogether.
So how do you deal with it all? I try to encourage my children (and myself!) to realistically decide what items they no longer play with and donate them to someone who might still gain joy from them. Clothing is the same thing, as if it doesn’t fit anymore, some other family will gladly breathe new life into an outfit. It feels good to clean and purge, so that you can truly appreciate what you still have. Because it is not about getting rid of everything. You are only discarding items that you no longer use, making space for those that you do. And once you can see what you have, you gain a whole new appreciation for it.
Think under-bed storage with the Ducduc youth bed
If you are still challenged after the big purge with where to put your precious remaining stuff, why not think about some dual-function furniture pieces for your home, like the DucDuc’s Parker youth bed. It has the under bed option of 2 drawers for storage or a trundle bed for sleepovers. DucDuc’s Parker bed comes with an upholstered headboard and footboard, and you can choose from a large selection of fabric options or you can even use your own! Like all DucDuc furniture, made of all sustainably harvested hardwoods. Made in the USA. Note: The images shown are the Parker bed in twin size.
Classic storage idea – the toy box!
And a toy box is always a great solution for those odds and sods that don’t have another home. Plus, you don’t have to look at it after it has been put away! The Art for Kids toy chest hot air balloon motif is hand painted and a beautiful place to store toys and other items. It is made from the finest of wood and crafted with great care. The balloon design is available with a solid top or stripe top. You and your child will enjoy the toy chest for many years to come.
If you are intrepid enough to run a garage sale with some of your purged items, you might find you have enough money to celebrate with. Think pizza party, new storage ideas or a trip to a local fun park as a reward for all the hard work. Happy purging!
