  • I usually like to have one outfit for each day or if you can mix and match . GL But do get rid of the bad condition ones of course.

  • 7-14 total outfits including socks and underwear, depending on how many times a moth you want to do laundry.

  • I keep at least 7 school outfits that can be interchangeable. about 14 pair socks/undies (we live in coastal SC, and the kids HATE being sweaty, so I plan on 2 pair of these each day.)... We keep play clothes, stained, slightly worn items for them to romp about in when they get home from school.

    I have 3 kids, and I still wind up doing laundry every day, but it is nowhere near as bad as it could be.

  • I'd say 7 changes is minimum.
