With spring in full effect, my current status has switched to spring cleaning mode. And why not? Whether it’s baby’s first onesie, or a years-old favorite dress— this exercise always seems to re-introduce you to your most cherished mementos. In fact, this April tradition is to me and my little ones, what family photo albums are to my mom or grandparents.
Past Trips Down Memory Lane
Everyone has certain items that can be difficult to part with (think baby’s first X-mas outfit). For me, my children’s “newborn attire” are cherished mementos of two times when my life was changed, for the better. Seeing it brings me back to my first moments with them— our return from the hospital, times they spent sleeping in my arms, their first smiles, and so much more. I’m sure you have many similar examples!
To be sure, each year our spring cleaning enables new beginnings— by providing us with a fresh start.
How Baby Resale Shops Factor in
This year, while you’re sorting through your kids clothing, why not add in a new twist?
In fact, here’s a challenge: after identifying the cotton-based keepsakes that you simply can’t part with (remember, I know the feeling), donate the rest to your local baby resale shop, non-profit organization or community recycling center.
If you’re not sure where to find one, a quick google or yelp search will provide quick, helpful answers.
Donating Your Kid’s Clothing Brands
To give others the chance at making memories in the same great kid’s clothing brands your little ones did.
Besides this though, you’ll be giving back to your local community, while also helping to eliminate/reduce product waste. There’s another reason too: you’ll be starting a new tradition— one that involves healing the Earth!
