In August I touched on children going back to school – I would like to continue discussing your child, their space, and their belongings. Keep your child’s life stress free with less stuff, less decisions, and less distractions. Use what they already have, wear what is in the closet, and read the books that are on the shelves.
Consider toys that will keep your children entertained for long periods of time or better yet are educational. Your kids continue to grow daily, make it easy for them to see through an uncluttered space. Dedicate (limit) a cabinet or two for their crafts, games, toys, etc. Do not overwhelm them with items in multiple spaces. Think ‘simplify’.
Downsize their book library if necessary. Consider keeping only a handful of books. Set up a book library (Lending Library) in your front yard or common area in your neighborhood. This is a great way where people can leave a book and take a book. If you involve your kids, they will see the value in letting go.
Downsizing, decluttering, and organizing is not an overnight fix, it is an ongoing project that takes time, attention, and dedication. Changing habits that you as a parent have grown up with takes time, think about what clutter habits you’re passing onto your children.
