Foremost, I tried to model moving stuff out of my room and the kitchen as well as her room. So, we made donations regularly, and suggested that it was a normal cycle to get rid of items.when I was on track I had a chore once a month to go through her room with her (this started when she was 5, I guess). Books/Toys/Clothes One of those categories a month, so we were checking each one every quarter. I asked her what she was ready to send to the thrift store (we'd try on most of her clothes to see what fit).One thing that helped was a space on the couch where we could put things we weren't sure of. If she decided she wanted something back, she could take it off the couch. After a week or so, I'd tell her that I was going to take the things to the store. Sometimes she'd have something to add and sometimes she'd take back an item or two.We didn't buy separate toys, just Legos after she was 3 or so (she was a careful child, we had no younger ones around) - so we would make vehicles or buildings as needed for play.
