Heaps of Clothes

My friend Jen is having a playgroup swap meet at her house this Friday. I was so excited when she brought the idea up because this swap meet is forcing me to take care of numbers 2 and 3 on my New Year's Resolutions list. In anticipation of this exciting event, I have been gathering up all of Sarah and Emily's outgrown and unworn clothes. I also had my mother go through all of the clothes that she keeps at her house for the grandchildren and bring me everything they've outgrown. Here's what I've got so far.

I'm hoping to get this all organized tomorrow and placed in my beloved Rubbermaid containers.

I also found a stockpile of outgrown shoes in the bottom of Emily's closet. Can you believe all of this came out of there*?

And of course, even though we just thinned out her collection right before Christmas, Emily still had tons of stuffed animals that we determined must find new homes.

Don't worry, Ladies, I don't plan to bring the stuffed animals to the swap meet. They will be donated to charity.

*Technically, two pairs of the shoes were Sarah's.

Yippie! I can't wait until the swap. It's going to be so much fun! Like shopping without spending money! I need to weed through the girl's stuff again before Friday. I don't think I'll have anywhere near the amount of stuff you have!

Wow, that is an impressive amount of stuff!
