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

    I sold and donated all my son's clothes (he's 5). Kept one outfit he wore as a baby. I'm not sentimental when it comes to material items.

    I keep my favourites, and favourites alone. DD is 7, if I kept everything she owned I'd have filled most of my shed. lol.

    They may be used by future children, or just kept. It can be nice looking back on old stuff.

    The patch with all the buttons are all the spare buttons off her clothes lol
    And I hand sewed them

    Do you have the name of a place I can donate clothes to directly? It annoys me that I drop clothes in a charity bin and the vultures sort through them, steal the clothes and sell them at the markets

    I have kept 90% of DDs clothes they are in a giant bag filling up the bottom of our built in robe!

    I gave a few to a friend and a few to charity and threw some out that were stained

    We are going to start TTC next year so if we end up with another girl we will use them as she has some gorgeous stuff. I also have a few bags of boys stuff a friend gave to me when i was pregnant before we knew we were having a girl.

    I really should go through it again and make sure we really need to keep it all, we dont have alot of space for storage here.

    I recently went through all of DSs clothes and separated all the good things to give to my friend who has a little boy a year younger. The rest went to the salvos. I haven't stored anything even though I know we'll be having at least one more baby because I hate having things stored away. I don't get sentimental over clothes either.
