To Buy or Not To Buy
Today I thought I would look for the box of winter clothes and school clothes. I found that I don't have a box. That means that everything is already in their dressers. So, that means that I have to go through the dressers again and have the kids try EVERYTHING on. Again. I'll be getting rid of some summer clothes that lasted one year too many. That will help the kids take better care of their things (I hope). Especially since they are doing their own laundry now. I also need to make an inventory of things that they need. Not too much I hope. Calico Kid is the one that I have to be most careful with since he actually goes to school. On the other hand, Mystery Girl is starting Jr. Youth Group this year and wants to look cool. Luckily, I can make a few "cool" unusual things for her to wear. Sewing isn't too awful expensive if you can use remnants and sale fabrics. We are trying to reduce the amount of clothing in the house since they only like to wear their favorites anyway. So, the question whether to buy or not..... Hopefully not. The hardest thing and the most expensive are the jeans and slacks. I think cotton with be in with Mystery Girl this year. It seems to get more use.
