I try to clean it out, oh, "every once in a while" (nope, not defining that) but I honestly believe that when I'm not looking - the toys in there are having, well, too much "fun" and are multiplying....rapidly.
I start to take all the stuff out.
I'm half way down. It's like peeling back layers of an onion - or discovering treasures in the earth strata...
And finally, the newly cleaned out, rearranged and pretty-to-look-at-for-the-next-five-minutes is...
The best part of it all is that this is my son's "treasure chest" - AKA: all things near and dear to him. Almost everything else in the toychest could disappear and he wouldn't care as long as he had these few items. All of them that take up, oh, like, 6 square inches of space........
