I bought my oldest boy a new pair of jeans for Christmas. He wore them a few times, we washed them, and now we realize they simply don’t fit. Would you save them for the next brother (for a good 2-3 years) to keep costs down, or consign them to recoup the cost now and not have something ELSE to store? Thanks! ~Amy W.
P.S. Our family passed the 700 mark today in our 2014 in 2014 challenge, and we love it! My college roommate has already completed hers (and is inspired to do much more), and my sister-in-law and her good friend are on board now as well. Love the challenge!!!
Thanks Amy! I say consign them. Most of us plan on saving hand-me-downs from our older children to our younger children. But more often than not, they get stuffed into a closet and forgotten about and found only after they no longer fit. Life happens, we forget. To get the most bang for your buck, consign them and use the money to purchase what you currently need.
This helps you have:
1. Nothing to store.
2. Nothing to remember.
3. Only owning what you need.
Do you have an organizational challenge I can help you with?
