Go Through Your Child’s Wardrobe
Go through their existing wardrobe to know what new pieces will be needed. It will take time, especially if you have multiple kids. However, you’ll get an inventory of what fits still, what’s too dingy to be salvaged, and what items can easily be transitioned into the next season.
Try Each Item On
Avoid guessing to see if a piece of clothing fits your child or not. Holding the item up against their body won’t do any good because it can’t give you’re a precise fit. Try each item on them so to get a better assessment of what really fits and what doesn’t.
Keep Only What Will Be Worn
Once you’ve gone through their closets, keep only what they will wear. If their wardrobe consists of cartoon characters that they have no interest in anymore, place it in the toss pile. Depending on how old your kids are, their maturity level and personality, if you child doesn’t want to wear a piece of clothing anymore, don’t make them.
Keep Clothing Other Children Can Wear
If you have multiple children of the same sex, you might want to consider saving clothing items for them. Passing down pre-loved clothes can save you money in the long run. Younger siblings can wear anything that’s not dirty or stained.
Donate Or Sell
Whatever you’re children are not going to wear anymore, you can either donate them or sell them. There are numerous places you can sell your children’s clothes online. This way you can make some money back and then buy your kids a new wardrobe!
