  • sell them on eBay, I make a bit on money and then use that money to put to new ones

  • I donate everything to my local op shop. Usually have a cleanup every season.

  • I would definitely give to charity or to someone I know like a friend or relative that’s in my area that needs them if they are in a good condition

  • Donate to charity, as no one to pass it down to. I don’t bother to sell them on Marketplace or the like, too much hassle.

  • I like to try to sell mine on Facebook market place and Facebook groups. If I can’t sell I’ll donate to charity, but I usually can get something for them and then I put that towards the cost of buying more clothes.

  • I am hoarding most of them for my next baby, but afterwards, I will donate them to my local church group or charity. There are a few specific items I am keeping though, because I intend on making a quilt with them.

  • I have 4 children;
    3 girls, last boy.
    Once my eldest is outgrown her size I wash them all ready for the next child to grow into, that repeats until the youngest has outgrown, i then go through what has gone through them all, memorable, knitted, and brand new & put all them away until my friends/family have children to fit! Others I will make into teddies to remember, or a blanket.. ect.
    The rest that I don’t want or keep gets given to charity ????????

  • Pass them on to groends or family or donate to local charity

  • I don’t know about all charities but I was told that some church based ones have lists of what others need so if they get something in particular they need they pass them on. They all swap according to what they have requests for. I think that is an excellent idea. There are some shelters that help Mums equip their new rental with basic essential things to get them started. Some manage to get back on their feet, get a small job and can afford the rent but have absolutely no money to buy the things needed because they have fled domestic violence and couldn’t take anything with them

  • We typically hand them down to our nephew or friends. If we hear of someone in need, we pass it onto them. Some of the more expensive items we sell on FB marketplace & the money from that goes to buying the next size clothes that our kids need.

  • I offer them to my sisters for their kids, and what they don’t want I give to charity. If items are badly stained or damaged I often use them for rags

  • I bag mine up and give them to charity. I am a school teacher and as my kids have gotten older I have bought them into school for my young classes to use too.

  • I usually donate to salvos but if the are still in good condition just usually give them to a friend as there daughter is the same age as mine

  • Definitely give to the salvos and vinnies

  • Handed them down to others
