  • I used to give them to friends or donate to a women and children's shelter. Now that he is in men's sizes, they go to my brother.

  • Keep any sentimental pieces, and sell the rest on craigslist - usually as one large lot.

  • I save them all. I guess even after three, I don't feel done and who knows.

  • I bag them up and drop them in a Goodwill bin.

  • I have no plans to have another child, and no space for just in case. I keep one or two outfits that have special memories or I liked the most for sentimental value and either sell them to a second hand store and give the money to charity or I give them to someone who I run into who needs/wants them. Last year my son's school did a fundraiser and the kindergarten used the clothes to set up their own store and ran their own cash register. Everything was a $1 and the proceeds went to the March of Dimes. They kept the spare stuff on hand for kids for "just in case moments".
