using storage units for your kids' stuff

Do your kids have more toys than you have room for? If so, you have two options - get rid of some of the toys, or find a new place to store them. I ran into this problem a few years ago and came up with a solution that has really worked for us. I rented a storage unit. I take the toys that don't seem to get played with to the storage unit and let them stay there for a few months. When a get a box or two of toys that the kids don't play with any longer, I box them and retrieve what I had stored prior. This keeps the kids interested in the toys and keeps them organized.
