We are in the final Christmas countdown! I’m so excited for all the eating, game playing, family time, and my kids’ ecstatic faces on Christmas morning.
We’ll soak up every second of the extra time together while eating leftover sugar cookies and turkey for days. Then, the kids will head back to school and I’ll be smacked in the face with post-holiday toy clutter.

3 Steps to Tackle Post-Holiday
I’m determined not to let clutter rule the new year and that starts with tackling the toys. Truth be told, I started last week while the kids are still in school because getting rid of toys is MUCH easier when they’re not around.
Toss, keep, donate piles have taken over the basement and now it’s time for the next step, these 3 steps to tackle post-holiday toy clutter after all the presents are unwrapped.
#1 Toy Totes
Having kids ranging in age from 4 – 16 means lots of toys get passed down. The younger ones aren’t always at an age to play with what their older siblings have outgrown but it’s still worth holding onto.
You know I love containers and totes are where I store toys until they are ready for them. Totes are also a great way to rotate toys and reduce mess during play time.
#2 Disinfect to Donate
Tackle all the toys you are getting rid of right away. Disinfect toys to donate and drop them off right away so they don’t sit in your car for weeks. Tag and box up any toys you are selling in a garage sale after winter.
Disinfecting with new PURELL® Multi Surface Disinfectant is a quick and easy way kids’ toys can receive the germ killing power of bleach without harsh chemicals.
This new, revolutionary surface spray is unlike anything else on the market today and will help you tackle toy clutter and germs at the same time. We’ve trusted PURELL® Hand Sanitizer to keep our family healthy for years, and now we can enjoy peace of mind just about anywhere with this multi-surface spray that is worry-free around kids, pets, and food.
If you’re like me you’ll end up disinfecting all the toys because of how clean the toys look and smell!
#3 Every Toy Has a Home
Organization helps keep me sane and everything having a home makes me smile at the end of the day. Giving new toys a specific home makes cleaning up quicker and easier. It also means not answering “where is…” questions every day and THAT helps keep me sane as well.
Now you’re ready to tackle post-holiday toy clutter in three simple steps.
