Tip #16 – Only a few toys at a time 

Do you hate all the toys all over the house all of the time?  And the daily or hourly clean up that is required just to keep your house (and the bottom of your feet) clean and safe.  If you’ve ever stepped on a Lego, you know what I’m talking about.

My friend told me about this trick, and I’m tempted to give it a try.  She packs all of her son’s toys in various storage boxes and keeps them in the garage.  Then she only brings out one or two boxes at a time.  She says her son doesn’t get bored with his toys as they are always fresh.  And clean up time is greatly reduced too.

My friend first started this because at the time, they were living in a tiny house.  But even after they moved into a larger home, she kept up with this method as it proved to be working for her and her family.

Have you ever tried something like this?  Tell me about it!
