Clothing Your Kids Challenge Day 2: Maximize Outfits!

Posted by   + Show Post

Do your kids have a lot clothes, but not a lot that really goes together? Today's challenge is to have a strategy on your next shopping trip! A game plan when you shop will help you make the most of your kids' wardrobes.

  • Buy clothes that can be mixed and matched to create new multiple outfits.
  • When you're shopping try to focus on buying what's missing from their wardrobe.

Do you usually go shopping for your kids in big trips a few times a year or smaller trips as things are needed? Do buy things one piece at a time or do you buy complete outfits?

I shop in several large trips throughout the year and do buy items that fit with what is already in the closet. We add essentials like plain t-shirts and then funky accessories and cardigans to help polish a look.

 We do smaller trips as things are needed, because if we dont, a big bunch of clothes will all get small at the same time. We sometimes buy complete outfits, but we mostly buy things that can go with other stuff. Creates more outfits that way
