Who is making plans to go through their kids clothes?

My kids have too many clothes and it is never more obvious then right now when there are still winter clothes and we have hauled out the summer clothes.

So this weekend there is no baseball, I am tacking the boys clothes... hoping to get the dd's clothes done before Easter.

The boys and girls club drop box better be cleared because they are about to get a lot of clothes!

  • I am always going through my daughters clothing. I have a box at the bottom of her closet & when we put something on or it is obvious that she has outgrown it it gets dropped in the box. Once the box is filled up we donate it or hand it down to someone else. Much easier then just having clothing that dosent fit all mixed in with the other stuff! Anything that is way too large goes on the very top shelf & in totes, those get pulled out when she grows into those sizes & put on the correct shelves.

  • I go through them at the end of each season, or as I see things getting outgrown. It's still too cool here to get out the summer clothes, but there will be a whole bunch of too-short pants going into the box when the weather warms up.

  • I usually go through them at the beginning of every season. If something still fits I put it away for the next season, if it doesnt then I usually pass it down to my cousins little girl or I throw it away.

  • I plan to go through them because we are having an estate/moving sale soon. My daughters are 4 years apart, both June babies so I try to keep what I think my younger daughter will wear when she is older.
