    Default what do you do with your children's clothes?

    my first born was a boy (4.5years ago) and I kept all my favourite/expensive/sentimental clothes from size 0000-4 which has filled 3 full bags. my second was a girl and if we do have a 3rd, it won't be for another 4-5years. so I'm feeling over storing all of his clothes and now girls clothes too! do you sell, keep or donate your children's clothes?

    I hang on to DS1's stuff for DS2 to use. Once DS2 has outgrown everything i pass it on to a friend or donate it to charity.

    I sorted DSs clothes as he grew. I had nowhere to store all his clothes to possibly use again whenever I ha a next bub so kept nice/fave ones, gave away some, donated some then threw out stained ones

    I kept them all and will be keeping them still, even though we're not sure we'll go for a third. I found clothes by far the most expensive part of having a baby and I can't imagine having to start the collection again. Will pass on to friends/charity when we decide we're done.

    Dd1 clothes went to dd2 then the nice ones went into storage, less favourites got donated and old ones went into the bin. I did send a few outfits up to my mums for when they stay over.

    And if this bub is a girl I will use the ones in storage otherwise I will keep a few sentimental items and the rest will go to the women's shelter

    If storage is the main concern have you thought about those vacuum storage bags? They're great.

    I gave them away to friends mostly. The nice thing is, out of my mothers group friends, I'm the only one going for a third and it's s girl. I just got given 5 bags of clothes from one of the girls and found some of my daughter's old size 1 clothes in there that I had given to her. Such a sweet surprise. My daughter was so excited when I told her that they used to be hers. She's 4.5 now.

    Unworn or excellent condition I give to friends. Everything else goes to a women's shelter.

    I've kept DS's unisex clothes and PJs for DD. the rest of it I've done a bit of everything! Sold some, given some to family/friends and the rest to charity.

    What i do sell (including toys) I use a Facebook buy/sell page and put the money into the kids piggybanks.

    I love love love second hand! Love buying it, receiving it or giving it away. So much is thrown out these days without thought. Gee I sound old now lol
