Hand-me-downs

I LOVE hand-me-down clothes for my kids. They save me a fortune and the way my kids grow they don't wear anything for very long before its too small, so its SO nice not to have to buy lots of stuff for them. (Not that I completely restrain, sometimes I buy just cause I can't help it). I have lots of sources for clothes and I am SO grateful for all of them. Thank you everyone!

Last week I was cleaning out drawers and pulling out bigger sizes and it just reiterated to me how generous people have been to give us stuff. I completely restocked both of the kids dressers with hand-me-downs. Fabulous. I may have to buy a few things here and there, socks and the like, but mostly I am good to go, including winter coats. LOVE IT!

Here is a picture of just the clothes I pulled out for Beth. All from one neighbor. Amazing.

awesome! I love hand me downs too! I don't have as many though because they go to my older siblings first (usually from Alice) and by the time they get to me they're not in great shape. but when I get them, I'm grateful. We have lots of hand me down toys, too (like Isaac's playhouse bed and train table).
