Then of course it always looks worse before it gets better.
Why yes there is a little girl in the midst of that mess! It got a lot worse than this for awhile but at that point I lost my phone so I couldn't take a picture!
Once I found all of a certain size and season I bagged them and labeled the bag like this...
Then I recorded on an index card what was in each big tote. The only catch is since it's hand me downs things don't always fit to size. That's why it takes so long, you have to try everything on. We also went through closets and drawers so it was a LOOOONNNNG process. I have 2 bags for my baby niece, 1 bag for my soon to be born baby nephew, 3 bags for my 4yo nephew and at least 4 bags for Goodwill. That doesn't include the stuff I literally threw away because it was so bad!! It feels good to be done and let stuff go that we don't need anymore. It's a little sad not packing baby stuff away for the next one... a new season indeed.
