I have four kids now, and sometimes the grandparents listen and sometimes they don’t. I’ve taken to donating or returning what I don’t want in the house, but the additional work created is frustrating and annoying. I have the advantage of both sets living far away so they won’t notice when something goes straight to the donation pile. I have no advice, but you could remind them that you reserve the right to donate anything you don’t want in your house and maybe they’ll heed the warning. I’m always repeating myself when they visit about how kids have nothing and our kids have so much, and priorities etc. it’s slowly sinking in I think.
