What to Do With Old Child Clothes

What Do You Do With Your Old Goodies?

There's no denying that a wee one brings a lot of baggage to a parent's life. And by baggage, I mean boxes of clothes that children outgrow at record pace. Moms hoping for large families usually pack the stuff up and store them for future use. Others wash, fold, and hand them off to other expectant family members or friends to use for their tots. Philanthropic mamas donate the tiny wares to Goodwill or other outlets. Still some make a few bucks back by selling their goods through mother's groups, eBay, or Craigslist. What do you do with your child's wardrobe items when they have outgrown them?

I think giving it to family and friends is donating.. The only difference is the person on the receiving end is someone you know and/or doesnt have to pay for it, even if the cost is minimal. I havnt gotten rid of anything yet, my daughter is 18 months and all of the clothes and big items, i am keeping until Im done having kids. Most everything is brand new looking and nice, and it will help even out costs.

I give most stuff to friends and family, but bigger items in good condition I will consign.

I donate mostly everything — it's nice to know others will get good use out of the items.
