  1. I’m also a SAHM of 2 under 4 and I swear I’ll buy any toy that might keep them occupied for a few hours. Having a variety of toys in each bin is key. When I first started rotating, I organized the tubs by type of toy and the kids would get so bored. We just did KonMari on our playroom and I couldn’t believe how much “junk” we had in there. Now the kids have a lot of room to play and they play longer with just a few toys.

    1. Ohh…KonMari on your playroom, I need to read more about that! And I hear ya about the willingness to buy anything that will keep your kids occupied. This weekend, we were in Bed Bath and Beyond and my daughter sat in the massage chair they were selling. She melted like butter and was placid. I was amazed and thought it might be a worthwhile investment for the times she’s going a little cray cray! 😂😂😂

  2. Toy rotation is brilliant! I love organizing ours in pretty bins and shelves, but it still feels like too much. I love the idea of sticking some of it out of sight!

  3. Great idea! We’ve put old toys away for little brother but I never thought about rotating the toys we have. Definitely something I’ll work on organizing after the Christmas loot 😳.

    1. Update…Little Miss E and Baby G didn’t even realize anything was missing. They went downstairs with the nanny before I could “prep” them. Report is that there were no questions about it, no reaction what so ever!!! Why didn’t we do this sooner?!?

  4. I love this idea! It’s amazing how much stuff kids accumulate (and not just from parents–from school and extended family!)
