The boys each have a toy box in their room. The idea with the toy boxes was that it would be a place for them to store their treasures (junk!!). It is full of birthday party trinkets, happy meal toys, "art" and other junk that they have accumulated. I hate all of that junk. They never play with any of it...in fact, they don't even have any idea what is in their toybox, but they are over-flowing.
So, I offered to buy them each a new box of markers, a new box of crayons and give them each a dollar if we take everything out of their toy box and throw it in the GARBAGE!!
Three big bags of garbage later, the toy boxes are empty!! Woo Hoo!!
