In less than the amount of time it takes to hard-boil an egg, you can clear your kid's room of clutter. Just whiz through this list.
  • Broken toys
  • Dried-out markers
  • Socks without a match
  • Shabby stuffed animals that are always at the bottom of the toy bin. (Explain to your child that you need to make room for future gifts.)
  • Worn-down crayons
  • Board games with missing pieces
  • Outdated trinkets that are no longer of interest, like the Angry Birds keychain that never got hooked onto a backpack
  • Books that are too babyish and don’t have sentimental value. (Give them to a friend or donate them to the local library.)
  • Sports uniforms from past seasons
  • Shoes that don’t fit. (Give them away or donate them.)
