Spring Cleaning Challenge - Toys

Welcome into my son's room.
This is how it looks almost everyday. Um, clutter and too many toys. I won't even show you under the bed. It's a parking garage for all his large cars and trucks.
I know you are expecting a clean room photo.... still waiting on that.

We have moved out the little red table it was too small for him. I have a goal of limited the number of toys to ONLY those that fit in his bins and just a few cars for under the bed.

This is going surprisingly well. Will was such a big boy and donated 3 large trucks to the church nursery on Sunday. He was so proud and they made a big deal out of it.

We are on operation garage sale. The guest room/playroom/junk room would be a candidate for the TV show Hoarders. We are putting all the stuff we are selling in that room. It is full to the brim which is a good sign of our spring cleaning.

I will continue to thin out all areas of the house. Simplifying and downsizing sounds so wonderful right now.

How is your spring cleaning going?

Pregnancy update: I am 18 weeks and all is well. The little peanut is kicking up a storm. My guess is boy. We find out in 4 weeks!

I'm spring cleaning too! Love thinning things out!

So you decided to find out what the baby is?

What is it about the time right after Christmas or warm weather that makes us all want to clean? My son is turning 16 yrs. old soon and looking at your son's room, I am glad that mine didn't like all those little toys:)

Happy cleaning!

I have having an itch to do some reorganizing.
