Ok so were moving and space will be very limited. Each person will have just enough space for 14 outfits each.

I have it broke down like this for DS and DH. I can't figure out a combo for DD and I. DD and I like skirts and dresses. DD loves shorts and don't wear shorts at all.

Can some one help me break it down.

DS

3 Tee Shirts

4 Polo shirts

2 Tank Tops

3 Long sleeve shirts

2 Jean shorts

2 Khaki shorts

5 Jeans

14 pairs of boxer briefs

14 pairs of socks

DH 

7 Polo shirts

3 Tee shirts

1 Tank top

3 Long sleeve tee

Khaki  pants

Khaki  short

2 Jean shorts

2 Jeans

14 pairs of boxer briefs

14 pairs of socks

Yes, everyone will have shoes. Tennis shoes, boots and flip flops. Also everyone will have a few days of PJ's.

I am still trying to figure out how to break down DD's and mine clothing. I don't have enough for 14 days but I'll make do.

As far as why were doing this its to save money. Were moving into something that is just under 400sf. We will be living like this for just 6 months where we'll be able to save just over $20,000.

We only have 2 seasons really in this area and if need be we will have a few things in the storage with the things we can't or wont sell or give away.

We don't dress up and do fancy dinners or atten church so we don't need formal or dress clothing. If we need to dress nice khaki pants and a polo is perfect for the boys and a skirt/dress good for DD and I.

Yeap ... Is this going to be a life long thing? Why are you having to downsize so much?
