When we were pregnant with Calvin, several of our friends had just had their last baby, three of which were boys. So we got hand me downs. And I just kept them all. We’ve now had three newborns in our house, and I have used a very small subset of the clothes. This didn’t stop at the newborn clothes either. Just two months ago I received three garbage bags full of hand me downs size 12mo-2T. And I just through them in the basement.
Now, we have started the process of finishing the basement. And by started I mean we have the layout planned, and my FIL built me shelves so we can organize and clean. We’ll buy lumber for framing in the next couple weeks. But on nap today I sorted through baby clothes.
I ended up saving about 6-10 outfits per size in Addition to all the clothes I’ve made or embroidered on. I also have a big ole garbage bag to give to Goodwill, and another bag and a half of things I’m going to post on a local Facebook mama swap kinda thing and see if I can get some $.
It ended up taking about 3 hours, so Joe had to entertain Calvin outside or in his room bc I had taken over the living room. All in all. We had a pretty successful day.
Joe is going to go work tomorrow. His rash looks pretty bad, but the bumps he had yesterday don’t hurt, but the new ones today hurt alot. So hopefully he’ll be on the down hill slope here soon.
