No more toys everrrrrrr

Today we cleaned and decluttered the playroom. I'm not going to sit here and make my life seem like butterflies and rainbows and make you believe my house is out of a Better Homes and Garden magazine. This is what the playroom looked like before we started

Ridiculous right? Hell yes. I can clean that thing everyday but it continues to breed it seems. So my solution was to go through it and get rid of stuff THEN take the stuff that we are keeping and cut it in half. So we bought a bunch of bins and put half of them away. This took us nearly 3 hrs. Doing this with 3 kids under foot was not an easy task. I had them taking stuff out of the throw away pile, we had melt downs of toys being tossed and we had a baby going behind us throwing stuff around.

But somehow we managed to get the entire thing cleaned, organized and sanitized. It feels so nice to have control over it. After all that time effort and energy we have this

Very impressive organization job of the playrom! I feel we are constantly in playroom re-organization mode and I only have two little tazmanian daredevils!

Found you on Cafemom! This is exactly what my son's room looks like. I could clean it everyday and it wouldn't matter!

Good job! I am ALL about neat n organization, so when I go up in the kid's rooms n can barely see the floor, i'm not even gonna lie, it seriously takes my breath away n am speechless. I usually am the 1 who goes up there n cleans for hours. It's over whelming when I first start, but when i'm into it I organize n get control n it's all good in the end..but very exhausted lol. But then if they destroy it a day later grrrrrr it p's me off big time after all the time I put into it. Lately with having walk thrus with selling the house, we make sure the kids clean it every single day. It's easier cuz we keep up on it n it's not so overwhelming.
