"tidbit" from Chapter 9

    As most of you know,  this month our blog is doing a skim through of sorts, of the book, "PRETTY NEAT - the buttoned-up way to get organized and let go of perfection" (which was co-authored by Alicia Rockmore and Sarah Welch, from 'Get Buttoned Up' ). We are now up to chapter nine (9), which is titled, 'TEMPER THOSE TOY TSUNAMIS'.

    Today's exerts come from the first part of the very first paragraph of the chapter, which begins on page one hundred and nine (109) : "It starts out slowly; a rattle here, a play mat there. But my, how quickly it escalates. Within one or two years of the arrival of your first born child, your home will have been hit by an inevitable toy tsunami."

   Quite a chapter to touch on immediately after Christmas, huh?  o;-p

   What tactics have you tried and actually had work for you in implementing toy control in your home? Yes, we really would like to know! What seems ever so simple and basic of a solution to you, might be just the tip that somebody else is going to slap themselves in the forehead and declare, "Why didn't I think of that?!?!!!" over. (Please, only tap yourselves! Refrain from knocking yourselves out!!!  o;-p) 
    And then there is also the possibility that the books editors might decide, that that is just the type of tip they were hoping to stumble across, and award you the $250!

     Looking forward to reading what methods you use (you are going to share them with us, r-i-g-h-t ..?  o;-p)  Don't worry, if you do not have a blog of your own, you can use "anonymous" to leave your comment under. HOWEVER, you MUST include your name in order to get credit for the organizational tip or shortcut ("methodology")!!!

    Reminder: use the "link" in the side bar of our blog, to go back to the original posting which introduced this book and the connected drawings. Then, leave your "organization tip or short-cut" (methodology) under that posting. That way, it will be counted for our overall number and they will be sure and find it to consider it in drawing #2. :-)  Thanks!!! ;->
