If your home is anything like mine, toys seem to be slowly taking over every empty (and previously tidy) corner. Now's the time to get the deluge of plastic and plush under control (preferably when your kids aren't home to inhibit your progress). Broken toys, games and puzzles that are missing pieces, and tiny toys collected from kids' meals and goody bags should all be trashed. Toys that your children have outgrown or never liked should be put in a donation box, as long as they're in good condition. Much loved and often played with toys should be organized and stored in easily accessible bins.
