We had 4 boxes to separate unwanted clothes:
Donate- clothes that are gently used that we could drop off at our local Goodwill store
Throw Away- clothes that are beyond repair and can not be donated
Pass Down- with 3 girls I have several totes in the garage that I keep clothes from the older girls to pass down to the younger ones. There has been many of times that I have gone to put a pair of jeans on our youngest daughter and none of them fit, seems like over night she grew 3 inches. I can then rummage through the hand me downs totes until I can buy her new pants. This also is a great way to save a little cash, not having to always buy new clothes for all 3 girls. We do buy several new pieces to make sure the girls clothes look fresh and they don’t have only hand me downs!
Re-Sale– I also sort out items that I know could bring a little extra cash to our back To School budget that I will take to our local re-sale shop and make a few dollars!
Then I begin my list of what they need for the beginning of school year.
