I don't know what it's like in your house, but my boys seems to all outgrow their dress clothes at the same time. We made a Barmitzvah a year ago and everyone got new suits and shirts and ties and shoes and everything in between. Within the last week I have noticed that they all need new stuff.
I am thrilled these boys are growing. But they are all different body types from each other and hand me downs just are not working any more. I have been looking online and taking suggestions from other moms on the best places to outfit the boys for Passover.
Decide who in your family is in need of new clothes for the holiday - hand me downs are great, clothing swaps with friends with children of similar ages are even better. But if you have to bite the bullet and spend the money, get the clothes shopping done this week. This way if there are alterations that need to be done there is still time to get them done without having to pay extra two days before Passover for the seamstress to do it quicker. Also, if you are looking for that perfect pair of shoes to go with that new outfit - you have a little bit of time to shop online and wait for shipping!
ACTION: Donate your gently used clothing to those in need.
DINNER TONIGHT: All that shopping can make a person starving. Slow Cooker Sausage and Chicken Jambalaya - it'll calm that rumbling stomach and help you use up your rice.
