The "One Big Box" Cleanup Tool

To help her clean up her room, give her “one big box,” and put everything that’s on the floor or in the way in the box. Then, work with her, one item at a time, to decide: Is this trash? Is this something that already has a home (like a stray sock or a hair bow)? Is this something that needs a new home? Even if you don’t finish the task, at least everything’s contained until you can get back to it.
