Remember That Mess In The Batcave Toy Room?

Clearing the floor in the Batcave Toy Room
Day 2 of my 31 Days to a Better Toy Collection Challenge went from the toy room doubling as a storage unit to looking more like a toy display and what you see above on Day 17.

We've been selling, donating, and rearranging all of our excess stuff that was in the toy room. The great thing is this process is also taking place throughout the entire house.

I continue to refine the toy displays in the room. Often taking advantage of the boxed toys and stacking them on top of each other to expand shelf space. This is giving me more room and allowing more toys into the room itself and minimizing the ones that are currently in their plastic bin prisons.

This has been an amazing process for me. In some ways a sort of therapy that is very freeing. It is also proof of whatever your mind can conceive you can achieve.

  1. That is stunning to behold. And I do not mean it ironically. I think you posted before pics, right? With the piles on the floor? You have put so much work into this! I'm working on some floor piles of my own right now. Can't wait for them to evaporate.

    1. Thank you sir. Yes, you can click the link for Day 2 of the challenge in the first paragraph of this post or archive Day 2 of the 31 Days to a Better Toy Collection Challenge. I hope my future post will continue to inspire the evaporation of not only my piles, but yours.

  2. I gotta organize as well....I need to hang up my DC and Dungeons sign.

  3. John, the room looks awesome. Wish I had space to display my treasures the way you have. Looks so clean and organized.
