We cleaned out The Boy’s closet. We were having a flood problem with his pants that prompted the review session. The kid is growing like a weed. I think his pajama bottoms were a good 4-5 inches above his ankles. I was a tad behind the 8 ball on taking those out of the rotation.
You can’t really see it in the picture, but there were lots of pajama bottoms, a winter coat, long sleeved and short sleeved t-shirts and some pants. Oh, and three or four hoodies.
The school uniform pants that no longer fit will get donated. The other clothes, two paper grocery sacks worth, went to a friend with two small boys. Her boys are about 6-7 years behind us, but she is a willing recipient for our outgrown clothes. I also have two nieces that are five years behind The Girl, so most of her outgrown clothes go there.
Also, I love seeing picture on Facebook or Instagram with their kids in my kids’ clothes. It’s like our own version of Where’s Waldo.
Very Casual Poll. Also, over on The Simple Year Facebook Page, I asked people to respond to a very casual poll. I’ll repost it here, so please join in:
Any topics you’d like to see me talk about on the blog? Any products you think I should give a test run and report back because they claim to simplify some aspect of life? Any simplification questions keeping you up at night? Let me know!
