So I decided that I would put up a little sign in the kitchen near the waste can:
'No other use?'
Maybe the kids can come up with something amazing- as kids often can.
While cleaning out Allie's room (8 years old) I found a TON of Barbie shoes.
Later- while working in the craft area in the basement, I ALMOST threw away an old PlayDoh container. Heh heh.. I thought: " I know just the thing."
I am putting all tiny toys in Playdoh containers now.
