We have a small gas generator that powers the frig., runs the television, recharges the computers, etc. It works great, but you have to switch out things from a long utility cord and plug strip. It doesn't run a lot of items - too small. We need to invest in a bigger one as we have outtages fairly often.

I still get toys and books cluttered around, but it's easy to clean with more surface area. A plastic rake and baskets are all you need to clean up the toy clutter. Yes, I rake the toys.
