Today at Works For Me Wednesday, it's backwards day... meaning that instead of offering a little tip of our own, we get to ASK for advice.
So, here's my question: What on earth do you do with outgrown kids' clothes to store them before giving them away? Ours eventually make their way to friends and to Goodwill, so that's not the problem part. It's storing them in the meantime that has me stumped.
My current system- a garbage bag in each kid's room- is not attractive, nor is it efficient. Trash bags tip over and spill their contents. Trash bags rip if they're too full. Sometimes "helpful" kids put the wrong clothes in, thinking that's the place for clothes that should go in the laundry. Ugh.
Those trash bags get filled, then moved to the hallway, then to garage where they linger for months before I finally get them delivered to where they need to go.
I've tried other things- boxes labeled with the current sizes, for example. But lack of space didn't make this too efficient for us.
So, I'm asking.... what's your system?
