Have you ever noticed just how much stuff your kids have. Sometimes Crystal and I stand back and marvel at all the stuff that Fin has accumulated in his less than two years of existence. This is, no doubt, due to the fact that we have been blessed to be able to provide him with more than he needs and feel the pressure to do so. He also has multiple grand parents and great-grand parents that enjoy buying for him.

That’s not a bad thing. However, the fact that he has already accumulated so much stuff, with no signs of slowing down, does pose a few problems. Those problems, and some practical advice as to how to address them, are laid out in a great blog post that I read recently. You can read the full post here and leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

Do you see a problem with children accumulating lots of stuff? Do you have any other tips as to how to manage this issue?
