As the air grows cooler and the lattes grow pumpkin-spicier, parents across the country are clearing our their garages, basements and “general dumping areas” to make way for the new season. But what should we toss and what should we keep for next year? Will that Poop-with-Eyes-Emoji-Hat your kids made you win at the fair be worn next summer? Should you hold out and store those firecrackers you didn’t set off on July 1st then also forgot to set off every other summer weekend? And why are you hanging on to the mouldy hammock crumpled in the trunk of you car? See if you can guess the right answer to these tricky choices.
Of course of all the things you must keep throughout every season, sense of humour is top of the list. Also remember to keep your sense of calm, your cool and whatever dignity you have left.
Oh, and your sanity. You’re definitely gonna need that come winter holidays.
