The Wonders Of A Maternity Box
If you have had a baby, or are pregnant you know that maternity clothes are so expensive! They can cost a mother hundreds of dollars. I know that when I walk into a maternity store I get the ” great deal” talk, You know when an associate is telling what a great deal you are getting on that $60 dollar shirt, or that $80 pair of jeans. This is way to pricey for me. That is why my sister and I have a Maternity Box.
Maternity Box? What is it?
I know your thinking that a maternity box is pretty self explanatory, and it is. It is a box ( more of a storage tote like this one) of maternity clothes my sisters and I all contribute too. But this is what makes this amazing, instead of spending hundreds of dollars on pregnancy clothes my sisters and I only spend $20 here or there and put our clothing together for one fabulous maternity wardrobe! This helps our whole family and support system out financially because lets face it. Babies are expensive and we don’t want to spend that much on clothes we can only wear for maybe 6 mos. here or there.
I know not everyone has 9 sisters like I do. So doing this might seem very unlikely from your point of view. However, I think its totally possible. If you don’t have sisters try doing this with extended family, maybe cousins? Or try it with your girl friends or neighbors. This can help out so many.
With anything shared there may be some rules. Ours are pretty simple.
1- Throw out anything holy, dingy, or out of style.
2-Try and add to the box whenever you use it.
3- Get a variety of sizes, because its likely you will have different body types.
4- Wash every thing after use.
I really hope a few of my readers found this useful. Thank you so much for reading and feel free to comment if any of you have other great ideas:) If you liked this idea, try out my baby box post!
