Toys in the Trash

I try to teach my kids to take care of what is theirs and in order to do that they must put their things away.  I try not to nag them, and I let them reap the consequences of broken or lost toys because it was their choice not to take care of their toys.  Once a week we have our floors and bathrooms cleaned...it is my splurge and saves my sanity.  Seriously.  Totally worth the money I pay - especially the clean bathrooms!  So once a week the girls absolutely MUST pick up the play room and their bedroom and once a week there is a 50/50 chance they simply don't do it.  After washing their clothes the day before and putting them away and changing their sheets, I was not in a very sympathetic mood when it came time to pick up the playroom.  I simply told them to pick up their toys, and if they treated their toys like trash so would I.  They picked up a few toys, but made no real effort to do their best at putting things away.  So true to my word, I put their toys in the trash...
