Keeping kids clothed is a big job! When the kids were out of school for Spring Break they cleaned out their closets and made a list of what they needed to buy for their Spring wardrobe. (Abigail and I helped them.) Our general rule is 10 outfits for little kids and older kids have about 5 bottoms and 10 tops. (Abigail has a capsule wardrobe) Less is more, and they love everything they have.
Yes, I did shop with all eight kids by myself!
Another thing we do to teach responsibility and how to mange money is that when you turn ten years old you get the privilege of paying half of the money for your clothes. It has been such a great system for our family. I kids have learned so much!
