31 Days to a Better Toy Collection Challenge: Let the Toy Collection Clean Up Begin - Day 1

A better toy collection, a better toy blog, a better Batcave Toy Room.

I've been reflecting a lot lately and doing a lot of goal setting. Goals always have worked wonders for me simply because they keep me focused and by staying focused I get things done.

Events over the past year have kept me down, but I'm moving forward with all that. One of the first things is to get that place I love to hang out in back to tip top shape. The place that feels like a fort you had as a kid. A place you call your own and everyone knows your name. That place for me is the Batcave Toy Room.
Whether it's the blog where I write about that room or the actual room full of toys and other collectibles, it's my happy place.

The Toy Room has gone through a lot of re-arranging over its almost four year run. Can you believe it's been four years already? The latest arrangement has been my favorite, but it was left incomplete. I jumped into action when I thought Jordan from Toy Hunter would be paying me a visit, but when that fell through and other recent events around that time set in, my bubble had burst.

I feel I have my second wind now and I have set out on this quest to get the room filled with childhood memories finished up and enjoy it the  way it was intended. With that said, I have set a time frame of 31 days to accomplish that.

I had originally set out to write about the process on a daily basis, but we'll see how that goes. Several days may be combined into one big post others may be done a daily basis. I am giving it my all to accomplish that.

I challenge everyone to do the same. It doesn't have to be your toy collection or blog, but set out to create a new habit, set your sights on something you always wanted to do , or just something you you've had on the back burner for a while.

Whatever it is let's make it so.
