So last month, I talked about how I buy clothes for my husband and I without going broke by dividing it out over several years.    I save money (and space!) by having a desired quantity list of items that I like to have for my girls.   When I am packing children’s clothes away, I update the list with what I have.

If I know I have someone who will be using the clothes right away, I will update a list of needs in my phone/purse.   If I don’t (like for clothes that my youngest is outgrowing), I just update the list with what I HAVE so that if I need to fill in holes, it’s easy to see what I need at a glance.

Here is my list of what I like to have on hand for my girls, once they are 12 months or older.

    Ah yes, toddler undershirts. I’m not much for layers myself, but my daughter loves them!

    Mine LOVED them, insisted upon having them this year and then wore them twice. Stinker.
