Gather clothing! The most economical way to do this is by gathering items you would donate and no longer wear. Another option is Goodwill or any secondhand shops. I’ve also had a lot of luck shopping clearance. Aim for basics that are timeless, and multi-functional.
Plan for 3 days. 3 tops, 3 bottoms, 3 pairs of socks and underwear, 1 bra. For babies and toddlers aim for a few sizes up, since these bags may go a while without being used (you don’t want to run out the door to find out that your bag is filled with 2t and your toddler is 4t).
See the previous post on lists (week 3) to help keep track. Roll the items up into a gallon Ziploc bag from week 2, and store everything back in its designated spot.
In case there are any items you may be lacking in your donation pile, Goodwill search, or your clearance dives, I have some affiliate links to give you ideas.
