Easy de-clutter tips for the new year…

  • Feel like pulling your hair out when you walk into your games room after the festive season?
  • Is it overflowing with new toys and older ones from previous years? Now is a great opportunity to take stock of the gifts everyone received.
  • Here at Easy Storage Rockingham, we would like to help you put the smile back on your face with renewed energy after the busy festive season.



  • Charity organisations can benefit from donations all year round, not just over Christmas.
  • Decluttering your toy and games selections at the start of the new year, can be an ideal way of helping children in need.
  • And this doesn’t just help children in need, you can benefit as well!
  • You can de-clutter that games room and ensure the remaining toys/games are actually played with and not just taking up cupboard space.


Decide what to keep and what to donate:

  • Do a quick basic sorting into 3 piles – Definite KEEP, Definite DONATE & UNSURE
  • To maximise success, we strongly suggest you initially do this without your kids’ help!
  • Anything that has not been played with in the last 6 months will most likely not be missed.
  • Pack up the Definite DONATE Pile in a sturdy box BEFORE you enrol your children’s help.
  • If you need sturdy boxes for this task – you can buy boxes online
  • Easy Storage Rockingham also has a daily changing selection of second hand boxes available – come see us today!
  • At this point, it should be safe to let the kids help decide what moves from the UNSURE box back to the KEEP box, or become a new DONATE box.
  • Really put in effort not to be sentimental and try to be firm in the decision.
  • Involving your children will teach them valuable life skills to help the less fortunate.
  • Box up the remaining DONATE toys and games.

Organise what you keep

  • Get your children’s help and organise the KEEP box in the games room.
  • Enjoy a well-deserved cuppa with your hair still intact!
