The Best Dressed Kid in Town

My sister-in-law is a good shopper. She finds the deals by shopping the sales, the clearance and the extra percentage off. We're not just talking Target or Walmart deals though. We're talking Polo, Gap, Carters, Old Navy, OshKosh, etc deals. So my nephew is a well dressed kid . . . and so is Josh. Why Josh you ask? Well, my nephew was kind of a surprise to their family and he is definitely the last kid over there. With only two older sisters, he needed all new clothes every year. Well, since Josh is the nearest cousin in age, sex and distance wise, he gets all the hand me downs. Josh has more clothes than Tim and I combined. If you don't believe me, take a look for yourself.

Here we have jeans and shorts. There are six stacks each about 4-5 deep. Wow.

Here are the short sleeved shirts. Again six stacks - each one about 9 shirts deeps.

And here we have the long sleeved shirts and sweaters.

Here we have the pajamas. Yes folks, a whole drawer full of pajamas.

And last, but not least, the church clothes. Here we have a half a closet of clothes he can wear to church. There are enough choices in there that he doesn't have to wear the same thing to church for four and a half months!
You might say, "Why don't you just put some in storage. Oh, we have. We have about 8 big storage bins in our neighbor's storage shed. These are just the clothes that fit him right now. I'm thinking about opening my own Kid to Kid when Benj is finished with these.

Thanks again for the hand-me-downs for Carter! It really has helped since we just bought Rachel and Jarrett new school clothes!
