so yesterday, I had dd take all of her clothes, match up outfits, and then tell me what she didn't like and why.
After all of the clothing wars, we threw away two articles of clothing.
I can't tell you how many times I've heard 'I don't have anything to wear'
She has enough clothes to not repeat an article of clothing in over 3 weeks.
One of the things she didn't want to keep because 'it's too hot.'
The other thing was something that she insisted on wearing when dh and I asked her not to because it wasn't appropriate for the weather.
I told her we would get rid of whatever she wasn't going to wear, and after all of this, two things went out the door. So now, only things that are outgrown will be disposed of. And hopefully well meaning relatives won't send any more inappropriate or too small stuff.
