What do you do with things you no longer have use for, or baby items/clothes that are no longer needed? Do you sell on Craigslist or Ebay? Donate to the Goodwill or something along those lines? Give things away to people you know? Keep things in storage?




I have a tendency to just throw away things that can be donated or sold. When it comes to the kids things, I just keep everything, except toys that have been outgrown, those go to my moms since the kids will play with them there. I really need to get rid of a ton of Bailey's 0-3 month stuff and the boys clothes, but I have this fear that the moment I do, I will find out I am pregnant again.

We're having a garage sale this year. I've kept most of the boys' stuff in case Kadence was a boy and now we don't need it. Otherwise, we usually donate everything.

We are keeping everything ...

If it isn't stained ... or have a whole in it ... or personalized ...

It has been washed and sorted by size and put in space bags.

We want a second baby and IF it's a girl ... we have a great stash
to start with. If it's a boy ... I'll sell it on CraigsList and have some
extra $$ to by blue with!

I'm still at the gathering phase of my life. Everything is saved pretty much.

When I don't need the baby stuff anymore I'll give it away to people I know. I'll probably hold onto everything until I know there is no chance of having anymore kids, so not for another 8 or so years.

Things that are in good condition get donated, the rest just gets thrown out. We're done so we no longer have a need to keep things.
