Not A Donation Center
With four boys, there are A LOT of hand me downs in this house, so in theory I'm not against hand me downs. BUT...I draw the line at stained clothing and rusted out toys. I've done laundry at least twice a week since I got married so I will never run out of clean clothes. There is never a reason for people to give me stained onesies because I might run out with a newborn. I promise, I won't. When the boys outgrow their clothes, I sort through them, fold and organize them according to size and place them in the attic. When I finally pass these clothes on, if somebody wants them, they will be neat. I can't stand organizing clothes someone else didn't care enough about to organize. It's more work for me. Yesterday, I received dried out play dough and rusted lawn chairs. They went in the trash. Why do people think they are doing me a favor by giving me crap they don't want in their house anymore?
