We love our kids and wish to provide them everything – what they ask for and even what they do not ask for. What this results in is that their room is full of stuff that they need as well as stuff they do not need, or have outgrown.
It is not possible to give away everything that is not needed. Thus it makes more sense to make better and different use of what ever is available.
Make better use of those stuffed toys.
After a certain age, kids do not play with their stuffed toys. But they are not keen to dispose of them either. You may use the small sized stuffed toys as the ties for your curtains. The big ones can be placed on the beds, sofa, couch and so on as cushions, or simply as decoration pieces.
Use those toy trains and kitchen cabinets.
All those roller coaster rides, toy train sets, trucks, home sets can be used as storage boxes now. Use them to keep your erasers, store your pens, buttons, badges, ribbons, laces and so on. All those fancy boxes can be used to store your keys and various others.
In fact, you can use many of these in your kitchen too. The larger ones are a good option to stack up your newspapers, magazines and so on.
Basically, the options are endless. You just need to be creative here.
