This week I have been working on changing out the kid's wardrobe to get ready for spring...As I remove the winter clothes (keeping a few outfits out for these crazy snow days in March!) I put the ones that they will not be able to wear again next year into a tub marked "Fall Sale" and store them downstairs. (if you lay them flat in the tub, you might get by without ironing!)
If they are big enough that I think they can wear them next fall again, I store them in another tub marked "fall kids clothes" and store them in their attics. As I change out the wardrobes next fall, I can always add to the sale tub if the clothes end up too small.
When I get out their spring clothes (of course I always have clothes saved from buying clearance ahead of time and yard sale finds) I match them into outfits and hang them together in the closet. I hang church dresses on one side of the closet and regular sundresses and outfits on the other. I usually match up "play clothes" which are usually comfy stretchy shorts and tee shirts and fold them in a drawer. I never have to worry if the kids will pick a matching outfit, I can ask them to go pick an outfit and they feel great getting to choose all by themselves...we are all happy this way :)
