  • I save them, as we're planning for more! I put them in empty diaper boxes and toss them in a closet in the basement.. it's out of the way for now :)

  • I give them to families with younger kids. If I don't know anyone personally, I take it to goodwill.

  • Pass the clothes on to family or friends. If I can't find someone in need of the size I am trying to unload, I take them to a donation place that gives the clothes away. While Goodwill is usually pretty cheap, I would prefer someone in need have the clothes for free.

  • Put in a big trash bag and store in the basement for just in case we have another and just in case that other is a girl.

  • I always donated them to homeless shelters in my city, and homes/shelters for abused women & children.

  • I just collect boxes and store them in there as they grow out of them. Now that I'm pregnant with our third and last child I am going to sell the rest in a garage sale.
