  • Sometimes I take them to consignment stores and let them buy some of it. Then, I donate what's left. However, more often than not, I just go ahead and donate them somewhere without messing with the consignment stores.

  • They get passed from the 3yo to my almost-2yo, and then I donate them to a secondhand store; I've found some great clothes for cheap at those places, so I figure I'll keep the cycle going for others. Very rarely I'll save them in a box and sell them at a garage sale. Most of the time I just want them in the hands of someone else who can use them, instead of taking up space in my house! :)

  • I give them to my granddaughters or to someone at my school if I can or I donate them to Goodwill at the last resort

  • I've donated many for a tax deduction, at least those that were in good used condition. However you may want to try to get some bucks for them online.

  • A combination of things. Some we donate, some we consign, some we sell on Ebay and some we pass down to the younger child.
