Clutter Rehab: Boys' Bedroom

My husband has hopped on board the clutter rehab wagon and jumped in to help with the boys' bedroom this weekend. Actually he did most of the work.
We purged toys, we sorted and purged clothes (if it is too big it has a box in the top of the closet), we hung dress shirts, we moved Lego and game pieces out of the bedroom, and finally we pulled almost all of the Fisher Price Little People out of the bedroom and bagged them up for donation. I let the boys keep the castle and woodsman's piece as they have a lot of Playmobil Knights and no castle for the knights. I am going to continue purging as I catch up on the laundry, but it sure looks good...
We limited the boys to a couple of small blankets each and collected up the remaining to be donated as well... I am hoping this will also help them realize that even when things seem tight and they don't get what they want, we are still blessed to have so much.


  1. That's a great idea. I should do it too. What did you do with the toys?
    I'm following you now from sb.
    Thanks for the tips!

  2. We have a built in unit on the wall with lots of drawers. Right now we have a drawer for Hot Wheels, Playmobil, Bionicles, etc. Legos and boardgames moved out to the living room..

  3. Must be something in the air, I'm on a declutter mission too at the moment,lol. keaniebean from SB.xx

  4. I need to work on my boys' room as well. I've told Teddy that I'll let him help me go through his and his little brother's toys, but that I want at least 1/2 of them to go to new homes or in the garbage (for broken toys). It's on my To Do list for this weekend.

    Thanks again for updating on this. I love getting more anti-clutter ideas!
