What's better than friends?

Friends with kids just slightly older than mine who have fabulous clothes to pass along.

Today, I sent dh to face the temple of doom (aka the attic) in an effort to retrieve a very special treasure (boxes of too big clothes that were exiled up there). He came down with two boxes. Some clothes are still too big, but we now have tons of warm weather wear for the wee ones.

Of course, I just bought TheBoy a bunch of shorts at a consignment store only to find we had about 10 pairs in his size in the boxes. Luckily, I didn't spend more than $2 on any of the ones I bought.

Although, one bag of clothes has gone missing. Of course it was the one that's chock full of the brand new tops my mother grabbed on clearance last year as well as most of the kids' summer shoes.

If you were a Spacebag full of super cute kids' clothes, where would you be?

If you were a mom forever in debt to her friends who managed to save her tons of money simply by passing along clothes, you would be bowing down before those friends.

I just got a big bag of clothes for my baby from a friend too. Hand-me-downs are the BEST!!

Now, where is that space bag....?

My boxes happen to be in our garage, if that helps. Of course, they're the ones I'm giving away - clearly, I need better friends.
