Fall Winter Wardrobe Shopping Game Plan!

So for years now I have been wanting to streamline my families every growing but not so functional wardrobe situation. This year I am going into the season with a well thought out game plan. I started by purging all of the clothes I was keeping that realistically would not get any further use and I assessed what we really need for each person in the house for this upcoming Fall/ Winter season. I say Fall/ Winter cause in Georgia we really dont have much differentiation between seasons as those of us up North do. Well I created this checklist to help me stay on track and only get exactly what is need for each member of the family. I included a space for sizes and the quantity that is needed for each clothing item. I plan on thrifting for most everything except under clothes. Those I am going to by new and hopefully on sale. The pajamas I am going to go out on a limb and make an attempt to sew my own. But if not we will go for a good solid thrift pair for those as well. I thought I would share my checklist for anyone who might find it helpful for them as well. Just one note on a word choice in the outerwear section and that is I use the term "gym shoes" cause I from Chicago. Depending on where you are from you might call them tennis shoes, running shoes, canvas shoes, sneakers, or athletic shoes. Just an FYI.
