Dug out my mat. clothes bin that's been in the garage for the last 3+ years. I haven't even looked at them in so long. Little is just about to turn 5 - that's how long it's been!

I opened the box and looked at everything - to see what will fit and what won't - so I can keep my eye out for used stuff on sale.

My thoughts as I took things out?

1. Holy cow - I was a size 14 at one point?! I have no idea if I'm going to fit into any of these pants!! hahahahahahaha.

2. Wow, I think I dressed better prego than I ever have in real life hahaha.

3. Some of these t-shirts are so tacky.

I think I might need new stuff.

I only had a few winter things so I spent more than half of my maternity budget at the closest maternity store (1 1/2 hours away).

I went through all of mine a few months ago--they are all still hanging in my closet. A lot of what I have are hand-me-downs, and the pants that I bought last time are HUGE. So we'll see. I would like to get some new/cute stuff.

I think I will need some new stuff. All of the stuff I have were from 3 years ago and mostly work type stuff. I don't plan on gaining much weight this time so hopefully everything is WAY to big

Well, I had my maternity clothes still hanging in my closet, as well as my pre-pregnancy clothes from last time that I was swimming in. However, the weekend before I got my BFP, I put them all in a crate and took them down to the basement. And even then, I knew it was stupid, but I did it anyhow. Also, we planned on the last one being the last one so some of the long-sleeved stuff I had I gave away when I was still pregnant. What was I thinking???? I am sure I will have to get a few more things, especially since I was just wearing them a little over a year ago so I haven't had time to get "untired" of the same old things. Just waiting for a little while to buy more.

I just got all mine out! I still want to get some new stuff. This time I will need some new clothes for the end of the pregnancy because my last two babies were born in July.

I donated all my maternity clothes. I am actually glad I did because I can't imagine how scary they would be since they were from 11 years ago! I remember some of them and yikes!! I am going to hit up local consignment shop. They have some good stuff there.

I have some cute maxi dresses that aren't maternity, but they will be cute when the belly is big.

This is my first but I already got some great stuff at Good Will. They have 50% off every other Saturday. All maternity items are $5.99 so $2.99 half off. The stuff I got all looks like it was worn maybe 3 of 4 times and came from Target, Old Navy, Motherhood, or Pea in the Pod. I got 17 items for $51. I know my Mom will want to buy a few things and my sister said she might have some stuff for me, but I won't be seeing them until December 21st for Christmas. Macy's has some great stuff too although I haven't bought anything there yet. You can also find stuff on Craigslist if you don't mind used items.
