Preschool Boys Capsule Wardrobe Fall 2017

I've been on this journey of being a self-proclaimed minimalist for a couple of years now. I try to be really intentional with the things that I bring into my home, and when we get new things, I'm usually really good about putting old things to the side to either donate, give to friends, or toss to the landfill when broken. 

One area that I've really struggled with for a while are the kid's clothes. They just have so many clothes. When I do laundry, Derek and I have our modest, normal sized piles, and then the kid's clothes seem to turn into large towers of clothes that topple over everywhere if I'm not careful. I also feel like I don't have enough room to store all the clothes, and considered getting them new dressers for a while. 

At the beginning of the summer when I felt like I wanted to tackle this problem, I surveyed moms on Facebook who all seemed to say that they like to have 7-10 outfits for their kids, and then a couple outfits for church. I'm generalizing here, but that seemed to be the overall consensus. And admittedly, that's how we've done the kids clothes for a long time too.

This year though with the start of a new school year, and sending my kids to school, I really wanted to shake things up and see if I could handle my kids having smaller wardrobes. Laundry really stresses me out, and I feel like I'm never on top of it. But my hopes are that with less clothes, maybe there will be less stress. My plans for each child were essentially the same (I'll share Em's clothes tomorrow!), they will each get 6 tops, 5 bottoms, 2 dress shirts or dresses, 1 lightweight jacket, a pair of sneakers, and a pair of dress shoes. This is what we picked for Jay, links for all the items are underneath the picture!
