Clothing Your Kids Challenge Day 6: Winter Gear!

Posted by   + Show Post

Since the weather is getting colder day by day, it's the perfect time to have your kids try on last year's winter gear like heavy coats, snowsuits, hats, and gloves to see what still fits. Today's challenge is to prepare for the winter months!

Have you been shopping for your kids' winter gear yet? Do you like to buy brand new things every year or do you try and reuse things from previous years?

I replace them as needed.

Quoting BabyTeki:

I got DD her stuff from clearance last year. DS I'll have to buy new. If they could where the same sizes, is use the same clothes. I'm going to buy DS a little bug so he'll hopefully get 2 winters out if them

I have bought what I need.   I try to reuse what I can.  They always get a brand new coat.

I bought hats and gloves on clearance last year and put those up for this year. And we just updated their winter jackets for school. Old jackets still fit, but they can use those to play outside without me worrying about the conditions of them.

I would rather reuse if at all possible. I like trying to be as green as possible.

It's been pretty warm here actually! So we haven't really gotten a chance to break out the heavy coats or snowboots yet!

I bought boots at the end of the season last year on clearance & will use the overall pants from last year. I also bought a coat for him on clearance so we are good on snow clothes.
