Re: Keeping rooms clean. I stink at this parenting gig.

We also have daily toy bins that have random toys and puzzles and books in them and everything just goes in a big Rubbermaid bin. We switch the bin out daily-ish.

This helps my 4 year old, who is the one who is hard to get to help out with cleaning. The other two are on it, even the 15 month old! Ha.
I don't have any space to do this.

But I think it's a fantastic system. I would LOVE to have them "check" out toys and then have to "check" them back in to get a new one out. (like the library). I just have no space to house the toys where it won't look terrible.

I need storage options. And I am just broke as a joke. I think that might be at the root of my problem here....
