The girls have requested that we get rid of most of their clothes and get them school uniforms. Initially I dismissed that, thinking that it was kind of strange for kids who are homeschooled, but having read enough here about people simplifying their wardrobes by adopting a kind of uniform, I am giving it further thought. A lot of their friends wear school uniforms and the moms seem to like it.
The girls and I looked online and found some pretty inexpensive school uniforms that don't look strange and uncomfortable. The stuff they were interested in were actually kind of cute, classic clothes. I could see why they liked them. These are some of the items they wanted.
It would greatly simplify the laundry and clothing storage. It would also make it easy and less stressful to pick out outfits. Of course I'd make sure they had at least a pair of pants, exercise clothes and a few play clothes too. They have good quality outdoor gear as well for warmth.
I'd feel weird if I forced it on them, but as it is their request and it could really, really simplify the laundry, it does seem worth considering. I have been contemplating buying a higher capacity washer and dryer to handle our laundry. This would definitely be a cheaper solution.
