WFMW: Change of Clothes

With 2 children still in diapers, I'm looking for any way I can make the diaper bag lighter. I realized one day when I had it packed full that I needed to eliminate some things. I decided that instead of taking a change of clothes for Matthew and a change of clothes for Scarlett, that I would only take one. Now I take something that fits Matthew, but is made so that I can put it on Scarlett too...it's just really big on her. I only remember one time that I had to use her extra change of clothes, so in the event that I need to change her, I don't mind if she wears Matthew's clothes for a little while. In all honesty, I could probably stop taking a change of clothes for Matthew, I don't remember the last time I needed one, but that with that darn Murphy guy & his laws hanging around, I'm sure that as soon as I left home without them, we'd need them. If you have opposite sex children, like I do, you'd want to be a little careful about what you choose as your extra set of clothes. I don't mind if Scarlett wears boy clothes for a bit, but if she was the older child I probably wouldn't carry a dress as the extra clothes. :)

So taking just one change of clothes, to fit the bigger child, works for me. It saves a little space in my diaper bag...in the winter it saves a lot of space! To see more great tips, head over to Rocks in My Dryer.
