What did you do with your baby's old clothes?

I'm slowly gathering more and more clothes that don't fit my daughter. (Kids grow, who knew??? Haha!) I'm thinking of making a quilt out of her old clothes, instead of saving them or giving them away.
Out of curiosity, what did you all do with your baby's old clothes?

  • I kept anything under 9 months for the next baby (when that is going to happen???) and everything else, I had a runnage sale.

  • Donated the good stuff to the Salvation Army so someone else could get some good use of them.

  • I save the ones that are really cute and in good shape and the others that aren't worth keeping but are in good shape I put an ad on craigslist saying that if there is someone who would benefit from a bag of free baby clothes I would like to donate them. I always have responses almost immediately.
    I only keep some because I might decide to have another baby at some point...

  • Ok thank you all for your responses...I'm just wondering if it isn't kind of selfish to want to keep everything, even if I make something I can use out of them.

  • I gave all of my son's clothes, baby swing, bassinet, carseat and everything else to my 16 y/o niece who just had a baby.

  • I gave them to my SIL and things that were special (his picture outfits and t-shirts from the zoo etc) I kept and when I have enough I plan to make a quilt from them. I tried to repurpose as much as possible, but I also had a SIL to give them to.

  • i plan on making a quilt out of our favorites, then with the others i will take to a consignment shop (as long as they're not stained). anything the consignment shop doesn't take i will give away either to goodwill or freinds.
