LO is on to her second pair of shoes, 7 weeks after her first pair, as her feet have grown a size already. I'm loath to get rid of shoes that have only been worn for less than 2 months but, at this rate, I'll end with a mountain of shoes before long!
Do you keep your toddler's shoes for any particular reason? Sell/donate them?
I've kept their very first pair. With my DS i am lucky because my best friends little boy is the same width fitting so i have been passing them onto her.
With Esther she's not actually outgrown her first pair yet - after 6 months! - so i don't know.
You do find that their growth slows down. i think i bought Daniel 3 or 4 pairs of shoes the 1st year he needed them. Since then i have only had to buy his winter shoes and summer sandals and tbh i didn't buy the sandals because he'd grown out of the shoes but because i wanted him out of shoes over the summer.
Callums still on his first pair of shoes (5 months after buying them), i'll be keeping them but if I get another pair and he only wears them for a few weeks before needing another pair then i'd sell them on ebay probably - as long as they're not marked or scuffed then you might as well try and get some money back off of them! xx
we put all our old clothes and shoes in those donation box things you get in car parks.
My MIL tells me I should sell them, but LO feet grow so slowly she's in them for 5 months or so at a time and so not only are they pretty well worn, they also have really moulded to her foot so its not going to do another child any good to put their feet into those heavily moulded shoes. This is whyyou shouldn't sell worn shoes, so it makes me laugh that people say to sell them but then would never buy seond hand themselves. I might sell some of the occassional wear shoes we have as they've literally been worn a few times for weddings etc, but then again I have a neice so might just pass them on to them to use.
