  1. There are toys that are one use for my kids.and you can break a set in half see how that works and donate the other if they dont miss it or rotate.i plan to do this when i get a handle on it.😀

  2. Great video Kristina .. I am one that hasn’t gravitated to the crave lol💁🏻‍♀️ I haven’t even seen any videos …but I enjoyed this one and thank you for summarizing it for me ☺️👍🏼

  3. I always like checking out new things and I’ve watched her whole series too. However, I’m a Clutterbug type girl. Her YouTube channel helped me a lot more. It’s a more realistic way of organizing to fit each individual style and personality type.
    Thnks for sharing this tho…I was wondering what other Mamas were thinking about this 😉👍🏻

  4. I’m super crazy about declutering, I could even throw my husband away 😂😂😅😅 my main tip is, have a day and a time to do everything (even the little things like folding), that way you don’t feel like making the same thing all the time.

  5. Your a great speaker, love the changes you suggested to do with kids. Awesome video….
    Any extra toys or kids activity please everyone don’t forget to donate to Daycares and your child’s schools.
    They go through it so fast because so many little hands touch it.

  6. I know her, but I don’t hang my t shirt or kids t shirt, I hang it we have the space so why not.
    Yes, the more close the more you have to wash and put away .
    Doing 1 load a day helps a lot. Pants I fold in half put in a draw. My kids too help with laundry start at 2 1/2 , now you’ll thank yourself
    Later.

  7. I agree on the clothes folding…it’s more time consuming, and I’m currently trying to teach my kids to fold their own laundry, and it’s too much for them. I definitely love clearing out toys this way…less is definitely more with toys, in my opinion 😁

  8. I use a method I call "playoffs". Say we want to declutter a pile of books by 1/4. Hold up two books, which book do you like more? That one stays, the other goes into a pile to be resorted. Once you go through all books, go through the second pile again until the second pile is the size of the amount you want to get rid of. That pile gets one final chance where you can switch one book for one book from the keep pile (I case something got through that you really want to keep, but you must choose a replacement to get rid of)

  9. I been trying to declutter for a week now. It's hasn't been easy when it came around with the toys. My four year old wants to keep everything even his baby toys so I tell him that he's a big boy and that he no longer plays with them. As for other toys I tell him if you want toys for your birthday you need to get rid of some toys. I show him three toys that he hasn't played with for a while and ask him to pick one at of the three. If he starts whining then I remind him that he has too many toys and tell him he has to pick one or all three will have to go. Then we pick three other toys and he picks one and so on. Also I told him that with the money he makes at the yard sell he can buy what he likes (yummy treat, books, go to the movies)

  10. Awesome ideas! The thought of the big pile of stuff is overwhelming for me! So I appreciate your advice to break it down into smaller sections. Cass from Clutterbug has some really good YouTube videos about organizing kids stuff and how to have regular purges 😄
