As your kids start to grow up you’ll find yourself in a difficult situation. When they start to outgrow all of their toys and clothes and you start replacing them, you need to get rid of the old stuff.
That’s often easier said than done because every single item holds memories. We’ve put together a few tips on how to choose what to keep and what to go.

Working out what to keep and what to go is easier said than done because every single item holds memories.
The kids grow out of them so fast you’re going to have piles of it by the time they get older. Firstly, they can be stored to hand down. Alternatively, you can take them to charity store so that they can continue to be used or repurpose them creatively into a quilt so you can keep them as memories.
Certain toys become fixed in memory, keep those. However, limit the sentimentality to a few of their quality favourite toys, particularly teddy bears or nice wooden ones. They’ll be far nicer keepsakes or for future grandchildren to use!
