After I tucked my girls into bed tonight I set out on a task I’ve been trying to complete all day. This morning I pulled all of Ellie’s clothes out of her closet and piled them up on the couch so I could go through them. She’s had a major growth spurt, and I’ve noticed she’s finally growing out of the 4T category. I’m stoked she stayed in the same clothing size for 2 1/2 years, but I’m even happier she is finally growing again!
Because she’s so tiny at 5 years old she ends up getting a lot of hand me down clothes from her friends who wear larger sizes. I’m thankful for that, but I also think she deserves a few brand new outfits of her own, too. The same goes for Aubrey. She shouldn’t be stuck wearing nothing but hand me downs from her sister, so I set out on the task of sorting Ellie’s clothes into keep, toss (too stained, etc), and donate piles. When I was finished I had a plastic container of 4T clothes that will move to the attic tomorrow for Aubrey, 3 trash bags of donation clothes, and Ellie’s closet is looking rather bare.
I guess that means it’s time to go shopping, so I spent the rest of the evening window shopping on one of my favorite children’s clothing sites, Gymboree.
Check out Gymboree’s new must-see markdowns! The sales are always great, and I love getting free shipping on purchases, too!
I think my absolute favorite thing about Gymboree is the rewards program. If you have a Gymboree Rewards Card you can earn 1 point for every dollar you spend online or in store. You get a $5 reward certificate for every 250 points, and membership in the rewards program is free! I’m all about saving money anyway I can, so the rewards are a great added bonus!
I’ve picked out some cute dresses and outfits that I want to order for Ellie, but I decided to wait until tomorrow to place my order. She’s reached that age where she wants to pick out her own clothes, so I’m going to let her check out the clothing I chose and narrow our order down to the ones she likes. I may go ahead and order a few outfits in a larger size just in case she has another growth spurt over the Summer, and if she doesn’t I can add them to her new school clothes when August rolls around!
