When do you swap out the wardrobes?

I am sooo anxious for fall (I LOVE fall - the start of school, the leaves, the chilly weather, football = !!!) and I'm really wanting to go through the kids' clothes and swap out all their summer stuff for their fall stuff. But it's still August - it's too early, right?! I mean, it's like 90 degrees here today - it's way to warm to start pulling out the fleece jammies. But darn it, I'm ready!

So, when do you swap out clothes for one season to the next?

Ha! I was the same way today! I LOVE fall I'm in MT so "swap out" time usually comes early for us. But it IS still too warm here. Sigh.

Re: When do you swap out the wardrobes?

I wish we could switch out! We just add a jacket and a few pairs of pants to the summer wardrobes. Ah the joys of living in a desert.
I do still buy super cute winter jammies though, they're too cute to pass up!

Ack! I couldn't deal with that. I need rain and cold weather to be happy.

I'm in Tx. It is still over 100 most days. I wish we had fall. I will have more of the boys' winter clothes in their closets very soon (need to buy pants for my oldest before then) but they probably won't wear them much till mid to late October. Actually Tharen doesn't like shorts so he wears either jeans or yoga pants most days anyway. My mom is making him a bunch of Gi's to wear this winter because he is convinced he is a "minja" (ninja). Kearnan will probably switch to wearing long sleeves with short by the middle of next month (he likes that look) but I will have to watch that he doesn't over heat himself.

I've actually been contemplating it being time to "go through" what I have to see what I need. The actual swap will probably happen closer to the end of September.

Re: When do you swap out the wardrobes?

Yeah, I've been contemplating this as well. It doesn't help that dd is outgrowing most of her summer stuff right now. I could switch out a few things (she has a lot of skirts I thought we would use in the spring, but thanks to a growth spurt she'll be wearing those with tights). I might if I need something to "nest". The other issue, though, is that now that I've hung up a lot of things for her new sister coming in December, I need to buy some more hangers/wonder hangers. Which we won't have money for until week after next.
