I'm already thinking ahead to organizing for 2012.
I had to order new snowboots for Bugsy yesterday. She has two pairs of size 6 boots and then there is a gap until the size 12 boots Tuff is wearing..... WTF? Somewhere there is a whole box of snowboots.... hope I accidentally sent them to Good Sam's and not the dump....
She's getting these... in pink of course. Size 8. Got 'em for $25 with a coupon and free shipping. I might have done better with Land's End sales but sometimes those Land's End ones are hard to get on....
You will recall I had to buy $50 boots for Sweet earlier this year. Size 6. When he gets to a size 7 he is in men's sizes.
Tuff is holding out in size 12 purple boots. The next good pair is size 2 camo sorels.... which just might not be fashionable enough (or warm enough after serving Sweet for two seasons) for next year. So I might be boot shopping again.
I'm struggling, as always, with the hand-me-down organization. We cleaned the closet and hauled out a big black garbage bag of shoes that didn't fit anyone. Now to sort that bag into:
1. Keep for Tuff
2. Keep for Bugsy
3. Give to mom for spares at her house
5. Give to cousin
7. Save for baby girl cousin
I think I'm making this harder than it needs to be.....
