What does everyone do with clothes once baby outgrows them. I don't know if I am going to have more children. So do I store them for now? or just donate and sell?

I save some special things and then donate the rest. I have been using thredup to sell (less work) and I also donate lots to local charity.

We first throw anything that is ruined. We donate the rest to a local charity that asks for clothing for kids. We tried to sell it but it's usually more work than you make.

I would give what you know for sure that you're done with to a consignment shop. I've made a lot of money over the years doing this!

Either resell the items on poshmark or to a direct thrift children's store. You can also donate them to your local Children's Hospital, Goodwill, or friends/family.

I've held on to things that have sentimental value but everything else has been sold at consignment or online (facebook yardsale) or has been given away. It clutters up so quickly with all the little things, dont regret hoarding it later!

I saved a couple sentimental outfits and gave the rest to a neighbor with a new baby. We have gotten so many hand me downs for our little one, that I know we will get more from friends and family for the next one.

What feels good to you? Do you really need to keep it? You'll likely buy new if you have a new baby anyway, and they could be a different gender. Then you have out of date, useless clothes that will be harder to resell.

I saved the clothes I liked and were in good condition. There's some pieces I know I want as keepsakes and I've donated others

We save ours because we are planning to have more children. If we didnt plan on having anymore clothes i'd probably sell.

I never had any luck with resale. It was like pennies to the dollar. I ended up giving them to friends or donating them. You get a tax write off for donations. Or I would pick a storage item from my friends registry then fill it with clothes for their shower gift.

I donate my oldest daughters gently used clothing to a couple nearby churches. That way they can sell it and profit. With our youngest, I take photos of all of it (that is in good condition) and post it for sale on Facebook. that way the money can be used to purchase her more of the next size she needs.

I hand down any items in good condition to my family members who can use it.

All of my child's outgrown clothes I donated or sold them to "Once-Upon-a-Child" they will buy your childrens' clothes.

My girlfriends and I have a circle of hand-me-downs, which has been so helpful for all of us.  Anything leftover, gets donated.

I am sentimental too and I save a few outfits, but the rest goes to close friends. What is left gets donated.

I would store them if you have the space! They are so much more expensive to buy all over again.
