Now that Christmas has past (and what a fantastic family centered Christmas it was) the time had come for me to sort out a big chunk of old clothes, toys and various objects that had accumulated over the past 9 months since we have been in our new property.
Looking into our bedroom and knowing Rockets daddy was at work I made a start on the ever increasing amounts of piles and random boxes.
So far, in one afternoon I now have a massive black bag full of rubbish and another equally large bag full of baby toys, clothes, adult clothes etc… I would like to look into different options like charities and possibly my local hospital for donation of some bigger toys – however I had read a status of a friend on facebook saying that their local hospital wont accept used toys, only brand new… There re also a few playgroups near me that I could check out too.
I love having a clean out, it helps clear my mind also and now that Rocket is growing up and no longer using a good portion of what he has it feels good that others can benefit from them.
Do you recycle or donate your children’s toys?
