    Default How much clothing do your kids have?

    Okay, so I have 2 child thus far - a 17 month old. I knew she had a fair bit of clothing as both my mum & I love op shopping. It's only today that I realised it was getting a bit ridiculous, and decided to count up what she has. Now... this is only what fits her at the moment. There's a LOT more for her to grow into - from clothes that will probably fit her in a month or two, to things which are a size up. This stuff does include childcare clothing, which ups it a bit. Nevertheless, I'm definitely going to cut it down. She has:

    Wondersuits - 5
    Bodysuits (of varying sleeve length) - 20

    I don't find these too ridiculous, as we use them for pyjamas. Some she's nearly grown out of, and the rest should fit her through winter. However...

    Long-sleeved shirts - 18
    T-shirts - 26
    Sleeveless tops - 10
    Singlets - 8
    Shorts - 9
    Skirts - 6
    Leggings - 14
    Tights (with feet) - 3
    Track pants - 4
    Jeans - 3
    Other pants - 11
    Dresses - 14
    Jackets - 6
    Cardigans - 4
    Jumpers - 1
    Bloomers/nappy covers - 5
    Shoes - 8 pairs
    Plus bathers, hats, socks etc.


    So tell me... just HOW does this compare to others? Do your kids have rooms stuffed full of clothing, or do you keep it to a minimum? Are you happy with the amount of clothing your kids have, or would you prefer they had more/less?

    Mine have way too many. Than all of sudden they have none. It's a really cycle.

    D's1 is the worst. He has grown 20 cm in a year. He has gone from a boy to man in less than 18 mths. Clothes that I brought at Christmas don't fit.

    DS is 3 and has a wardrobe bigger than DH and I together! I sort clothes into sections :
    Going out clothes
    Pre school clothes
    Around the house clothes
    Casual clothes
    so he has a ton of shirts-tshirts-polos- jumpers-jackets-vests-shorts-pants-jeans and hoodies in all those categories!

    Plus he has 6 different pairs of sunnies, 11 hats , 6 swimming rash shirts/boardies and I've just given away the last lot of his shoes as he has out grown them so now we are down to 13 pairs , he has a box of winter clothes I bought in the Xmas sales in the USA that I haven't opened yet!

    Lots, I'm not even sure I want to count and face the reality lol

    I can't believe a previous poster has just 2 pairs of shorts??!! I swear my toddler wears 3-5 pairs of shorts a day, just getting grubby or covered in food/dirt/ water or worse :/

    DS has way too much because mum never stops buying him clothes. I'm not even going to count because I just don't want to know.

    So many clothes, I don't want to count. We have been given a lot of hand me down clothes as well as people buying clothes for birthdays/Christmas. The drawers are stuffed full and we have barely bought any clothes during DS1' s 4 years and possibly 2/3 outfits for DS2 who is 1.
