Tell Mommy: What Will You Keep Forever?

undefined

Children grow quickly and you are inevitably faced with the decision of incorporating hand-me-downs from friends and family (or second hand stores) into their wardrobe, or strictly buying off the rack. In fact, 70 percent of lilsugar readers say they mix new and used duds.

One of my biggest challenges is knowing when to say no (as in, those clothes you are trying to give me are beautiful, but my children have plenty, believe me!), when to let go and what items I want to stow away as keepsakes. I generally hang on to heirloom gifts and handmade items, big ticket item toys, classic outfits, sentimental items and books. What clothes, gifts, toys and items do you plan on holding on to until they fall apart?

happy memory clothes. my oldest daughter has autism, she's 11 now and can no longer speak. so every outftl that i have a picture of her wearing where she was talking in the picture, i kept. i have saved so many of her clothes from when she was younger, it's kind of sad. but keeping them makes me feel like those moments were more "real", so i just can't bring myself to get rid of them.with my other 2 girls i have things like the outfit that matched their doll (and kept the doll outfit too), the outift they picked out for themself (that's a doozy, lol).
