Re: keeping baby/kid clothes for future children?
I get rid of clothing as soon as it is outgrown. More clothing is readily available at thrift stores or garage sales. My neice (3 years old)was in need of clothing recently. She only had a few pieces that fit her. The three kids born between my daughter and her were all boys. So very little was passed on to her. I was able to get her 7 shirts, 5 pairs of pants, 2 pjs, 2 dresses, 1 sweater, a shirt for my son, and a bib for my other neice(severe acid reflux baby full coverage bib needed) for $15 plus taxes. The brands weren't Wal-mart brands either. Gymboree, The Childrens Place, Disney, Carters, Gap, Old Navy, etc. No stains, tears, or fading. The under 12 months set is even easier to find cheap. Most people are overwhelmed with the quantity of clothing and just want to be rid of it. Not much sense saving when you know you will be moving at least twice before another baby arrives.
