Tackle It Tuesday: Clothes

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


A couple of weeks ago, I started tackling our clothes. It started to warm up here and I took out all of our summer clothes so I could replace our winter clothes.


We had some wonderful warm days, but the temperature dropped drastically (30 degrees in 24 hours) and we had a cold spell for over 2 weeks.


As you other moms will understand, switching clothes isn't an easy task when you have kids. You must go through what they wore last year and see what still fits. Then, you must go through the hand-me-downs from the older sibling(s) and see what will fit or what is still good (I despise it when I get something out that Matthew wore and the elastic is dry-rotted and useless). Finally, you have to put away their winter clothes that they may be able to wear again next winter and get rid of things they have grown out of. It is no small task!


The clothes I had taken out stayed where they were and they are still there. I will be tackling them today. Here are some photos I took the first time around. I will take more pics and update you later on... that is IF I can remember where I put my camera. :o)

I detest putting away the winter clothes. But it needs to be done.

Good luck! :-)

This IS NOT an easy job, I agree. Having to rewash the stored clothes too is a big tackle!! Happy TIT!

I do this before I buy school clothes and before I buy summer clothes. I went through the boys stuff before Easter. I had to give away 4 laundry baslets full of Brandon's stuff that he has grown out of just since school started! Hope you get it all done.

Is it too much to ask that we(here in Chicagoland) have the same weather season more than 3 days in a row?!! Grrr. Do you also have 4 different coats per kid hanging up somewhere?

I just got done switching all the clothes around too. We have no storage space except the attic which my husband needs to access with his 8 ft step ladder. And of course, we put away all the bins and I found 1 stinkin' pair of pants that needs to go up there. Forget it. Its staying unsorted until September! BTW, found you through Rocks In My Dryer WFMW post.
