I make sure we have 8 – 10 of every item. That way a person can get through a week if there’s a laundry crisis or if something is damaged. I also buy good quality clothing because I think it fits better, lasts longer, is more comfortable, and for the kids, retains resale / hand-me-down value after being outgrown.
I do all the family’s clothing shopping online. It saves gas, mileage, speeding tickets (!), and impulse buying. Shopping is not a recreational activity for our family.
