Re: How do you help kids purge without the meltdown tears?
Good news! Our stuffie purge didn't go nearly as bad as I thought it would! I talked to DD about donating and explained that I donated a lot of my things. She went through and picked out some of her favorite stuffies to keep. I gave her choices when she multiples such as care bears, pillow pets, etc. We are down to about 20 stuffed animals but they are definitely manageable.
Surprisingly DD said I could get rid of her doll house. I was shocked. She really never does play with it so I am okay with it plus I can make some $ off of it!
