    I seem to have built up a collection of shoes that Lucas has outgrown and not sure what to do with them ? I know some people ebay them but didn't think id make anything from it after fees. I guess the other option is charity shop?

    Yeah it depends on the brands and condition of them whether you'd get anything on ebay. Any footwear my two get through is usually fit only for the bin :rofl:

    I've held on to all of Conner's old clothes/ bedding/ shoes etc. A lot of the stuff has come in handy now that my friends are starting to have children!! Hand me downs are wonderful and it saves you and other people a lot of money!!

    Also, just yesterday, I took some of Conner's lightly worn clothes and I sold them to Once Upon a Child. I got enough money back to exchange his old clothes for some new summer clothes!! I think I only paid them a $5 difference!! If there is a "Once Upon a Child" near you, I highly recommended them!! :) I hardly ever buy Conner "new" clothes anymore. There is nothing wrong with buying "lightly worn" clothing for a fraction of the cost of new stuff!!! :) He has clothes that fit and are cute and my wallet isn't empty!!

    Think I might just give them to charity then. They are all from clarks but I buy them when they are in sale so usually half the price. Infact I bought a new pair yesterday for £8, £20 off !! I think if i was paying full price id be more inclined to stick them on ebay but the ones i have watched have only sold for a couple of pounds.

    I put the ones that are past it in the textile recycle bin, and pass the half decent ones onto a friends nephew.
    Charlie has a far more impresive shoe collection than I do!
