I already have the girl’s clothes bought and sorted out for fall and winter. Don’t be jealous. Most of the baby’s clothes are hand me downs from her sister (yeah for 2 girls!) I got the 18-24 month clothes all in the nursery OUT of storage to cycle in as needed, and put the 2ts/3ts outgrown into a plastic tote in storage and the 3-12 month clothes that had been in the bottom of the closet since.. the winter. . sheesh! put away as well. I know it’s not quite needed yet, but better do it now and get everything cleaned up and straightened out than wait too long and be frantically looking for clothes that will work when the cold snap hits.
The sassy one was still wearing 2T skirts/shorts so I bought her some 4s. I think they’ll fit at least this year if not next and I bought a few 5’s on clearance, too, at least the baby will be able to wear them in a few years if nothing else. My plan is to get some tights and let those skirts get some use this winter, too! I even bought some dresses for the girls, to hopefully bridge this warm gap for church and other events (perhaps with leggings and a cardigan or jean jacket). Can you tell I’m all about bargains and making the most of these girls’ clothes? Three season or bust for as much as possible!
Most of them still need tags cut off that are new, washed with those magic color catching sheets, and readied in the drawers. I guess I have some time. I’ll be covered in glitter for the foreseeable future. I used Kohl’s cash (earned with our Thanksgiving black Friday ONLINE purchases for Christmas) last year to buy new clothes for the girls in the store for THIS year. Awesome. Most of the big kid’s are covered in glitter. That crap is EVERYWHERE. I think someone called it ‘craft h*rpes’– because you touch that stuff ONCE and it stays around forever. Same with the clothes. Still though, adorable teal panda bear.. hmm, maybe I have a photo… I know I’ve shown this before, but anyway..I’d say 7 of the 11 regular shirts there have glitter on them, that really is going to be a mess!
So cute! I don’t know if you saw my school shopping post but I went crazy with sales and clearances. I also do the tights and skirts to get more use out of them.
I love the zing of glitter on craft projects, but can’t use it in the cafeteria where my program is located. We make do with glitter glue and acrylic glitter glaze. It occasionally gets on clothes, too. 🙂
Planning ahead with the kid clothes is a great idea and will save you a buttload of money. I wish I’d been keeping track over the years of how much money I’ve saved between Goodwill Hunting and shopping clearance. I also wish I HAD all that savings!!
