Clothing Exchange

My "problem area" for the week is all our clothing. It is time to pack up all the summer clothes and pull out the winter clothes. For the kids, this process includes pulling out everything that is too small and determining what we have (and need) for the coming season.

This comes just in time for our community's clothing exchange. Twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring, there is a big clothing exchange for everyone in the Seminary. People donate their wearable, used clothing and pick up 'new' clothes donated by others. I always find great children's clothes.

They start accepting donations today, so I will be spending this evening and tomorrow sorting, washing and clearing out clothes.

I miss the clothing exchange! Good luck with the cleaning of the closets!

The clothing exchange is such a great idea! I find myself wondering if I can start one wherever we move next. =)

So far, I have only made it through the kid's clothes. I don't know if I will have my clothes cleared out before the clothing exchange tomorrow. We'll see how the next few hours go.
