We have 4 small children and only 1 closet and 1 chest of drawers for them to share.  This means that periodically, I purge.  I purge those clothing items that are redundant (two pairs of hole-y jeans that Jenna has yet to wear because she has 3 other pairs) and items that are out of season (footed fleece PJs) and items that don't fit (that cute pink shirt Jenna has only worn once :( ).  If I only have 3 pairs of PJs for each kid, then I have to do laundry more often and it's less overwhelming.

I am, however, having a hard time purging Korynne's summer dresses because they are just too cute.  She has enough to wear a different sun dress every Sunday for the rest of the year (okay... the next 8 weeks at least).  And since I can't bear to get rid of them, maybe I can let her wear them more often.

  1. Hi Clara! Love your blog! I let my Abby wear her fancy dresses daily. She loves it. Why have clothes that she can't wear? Many have gotten ruined, but that's ok because they were worn. Sometimes I will make her wait for a particular occasion. For example, the Easter dress waits until Easter. Then, it goes into the regular clothes. People always comment on how cute she looks too, which she loves ;)

    You are right about limiting clothes. I have more space, but have found that if I have too many clothes for the kids I have too much laundry to do. I am amazed that you are able to organize so many kids with one closet!
