Monday Minimalist: Kid Clothes

How fast is your little one growing? They sure sprout up, don't they? Are their drawers getting cramped? Not only was our little plastic dresser thing stuffed, I had a box of Baby Clothes in the closet. I knew there had to be some overly girlie stuff in there and we're having a boy. Plus, a dear friend is having a girl next month! So it was high time I went through all of it and weeded out what I know we won't use with Spencer.

I was actually surprised by just how much of it was really girlie. I remember really embracing pink (I previously hated it) with Sasha. So... yeah, I wasn't terribly gender neutral. I need more stuff for Spencer!

I did get stumped on a couple of dresses that my mother made for Tyler, but then I realized they still fit Sasha anyway. I'm just not sure if I'll ever be able to pass them along outside of the family. They're pretty sentimental to me... but then my mother has only been gone a couple of months. Do you have any baby clothes you're keeping for sentimental reasons?

I had 1 ruffled dress that my step-mother referred to as my prom dress. (I didn't get to go to prom because I was pregnant.) I used to use it cover the base of the mobile on my firstborn's crib. I still have it. It takes up a lot less space than an actual prom dress!

This entire project took me less than 20 minutes. (Though I do have a stack of about 5 items I want to run by husband - I want to make sure they're neutral enough for my husband's comfort zone. One is a onesie I tie-dyed pink.) I now have one drawer completely empty, so I might be able to separate Sasha and Spencer's things. That will be nice.

Are you saving baby clothes? Do you plan to have another baby? Have you gone through and minimized your daily use stuff lately? I bet there's outgrown stuff in there!

Besides, seasons are about to change... you need room for warmer clothes!
