FGF: Hand-me-down Heaven

What makes me feel good today?


LOTS of them.

We are so spoiled. My sister just happens to have 2 boys (6 & 8) and also just happened to keep every single piece of their previously-worn clothing neatly stored in bins that she rolls out for us each season. It's insane.

They have also given us a crib, dresser, stroller, pack-n-play, toys ... and the list goes on and on.

Spoiled, I tell you.

I have the best sister in the world!

See all the clothes in the pic below? That's only about 1/3 of what she gave us for summer.

Not having to drop tons of cash on summer clothes for the boy makes me soooo happy!


  1. I super love hand-me-downs, which has kept both my kids in bushels of clothes for many years! Nothing makes me happier than knowing that when Daughter outgrows her winter coat we'll have a practically new one waiting that I don't have to spend money on!!

  2. Hand-me-downs are the best, especially for kids! They just changes sizes so quickly, it's unbelievable! :)

  3. That is awesome!! And the clothes look well taken care of!! That would make me feel good too!@!
    Happy Friday!

  4. Holy bunches of clothes batman!! That is awesome!

  5. No Way! That is so cool!!! It will be especially great as Miles gets older. Bigger sizes is a LOT more $$$$$. I was amazed at the jump in price.

    Have a beautiful weekend :-)

    xxoo Your Other Sister

  6. From FGF. I love hand me downs. I loved them as a kid too. I would get a box of clothes and my mother didn't mind if I was picky about what I liked and I could play at remaking things. It was great.

  7. That's fantastic!! We got hand me downs for my oldest till he was turning 3 then the woman was giving them to us moved away...BOOOO!

    So much money is being saved. Yea for you!

  8. Dropping by from FGF. Hand me downs are the best. They definetly save on cash and kids outgrow clothes so quickly.

  9. So jealous. Not only of the clothes but the level of organization!!!

  10. My sister does that too - her daughter just turned 7. It's like Christmas opening these bags of sun dresses with my daughter!

    Have a great weekend!

  11. That is AWESOME! I love myself some hand-me-downs. I woman we know lets us borrow some of her sons' old clothes. We return them, but it's really nice to use them. We pass on our clothes to a friend of our's... "free" clothes are the best!

    And we also let our friends use our bassinet, stroller, toys, and other stuff... I mean, we aren't using them right now. They are relatively expensive. So we are more than happy to lend them out!

    Anywho... have a great weekend and yay for hand-me-downs!

  12. Love hand me downs. And consignment stores. LOVE.

  13. Hi! I found your blog from Feel Good Friday.

    That is one AWESOME pile of clothes!!

  14. those clothes look brand new!!! that's so awesome to have a sister who kept everything for you! And Mr. Miles is one handsome stud.

    Thanks again for visiting my blog :) I'm following you now!


  15. We got loads of hand me downs when we first brought Alex home. He's outgrown them all now, so my baby clothes addiction is pretty costly. :)
