Every mom has this problem: Children grow very fast… perhaps even too fast? Some of their clothes can only be worn for a few weeks! If you have another, younger child of the same gender, problem solved. If not, what can you do with clothes that are still in good condition?
The first step is to make the task itself easier: Keep a bin in the closet and put all the clothes you can’t re-use in it, as and when this happens. Once the bin is full, it’s time to do a little housekeeping!
Sort the clothes
Step 1: Sort all the clothes. You may want to keep some for sentimental reasons, and dispose of others that can’t be re-used. Next, you need to decide how to get rid of clothes that are too small. Here are a few suggestions for giving them a whole new life – you’ll make some other families happy, while helping the environment!
Giveaways to moms-to-be
Do you know any moms-to-be? They would certainly be thrilled to get the clothes! Even if you personally don’t know anyone who’s pregnant, just ask around to see if someone would like to have them.
Donate to a helping agency
If you can’t find anyone to take the clothes off your hands or don’t have the time to look into it, donate them to a helping agency or a clothing outlet.
