What do you do with the summer clothes your kids outgrew?

  • Whenever my kids outgrown clothes I first ask friends with younger kids if they want them. Whatever is not taken by friends I donate to goodwill or the church yardsale.

  • if i know a mom who has a younger child that the clothes will i pass them on. In my tiny community we have a Clothing round robin type thing. We give up the clothes we don't need anymore and get clothe we do in return.

  • When my kids outgrow their clothes I put them in tubs and label the sizes. We are Foster Parents and we never know what age the next child will be that arrives at our home. They usually do not come with much so this way I can just pull out the tote when they arrive and they have clothes :-)
