25 Christmas Traditions

25 Christmas Traditions
December traditions to keep the holiday spirit alive.

Traditions are important to me. Since my Grandma passed away I feel like there has been a shift. She never got to meet my kids and never got to see me as a mother. Traditions shifted. Now my mom is the Grandma, and I am the mom.

New traditions are now blended with our old traditions.

I found this list from Country Living Magazine and I am set on incorporating these activities into our December Holiday Season.

Toddler (12m-5T) Boy Fall 2018: $140 Capsule Wardrobe at Target

Toddler Boy Fall 2018: $140 Capsule Wardrobe at Target

toddler boy capsule wardrobe 2018 target fall

This wardrobe was done for my son who started preschool, but sizes available for most items on the target.com website were 12M-5T. At the time of creating this capsule (September 2018) all the items can be purchased for $140.45 before tax including shoes! This could be cheaper for you because at the time of calculation, none of the items were on sale.

There is a total of 65 combinations of clothing- with 5 school days per week and roughly 4 weeks in a month, this should provide approximately 3 months of school clothes without repeats of the exact outfit. The days of the week are categorized by the pants. This was really made to speed up mornings and make laundry easier.

I planned it out to chose one outfit for each day of the week by pants… this way each day of the week gets a new pair of pants and laundry can wait until the weekend. The pdf below offers a convenient check box so you can mark off outfits as you go.

Here is the links for the 13 items included in this capsule wardrobe:

  1. Toddler Boys’ Jogger Pants- Charcoal
  2. Toddler Boys’ Reinforced Knee Joggers- Blue
  3. Toddler Boys’ Pull on Straight Jeans- Khaki
  4. Toddler Boys’ Pull on Straight Jeans- Medium Wash
  5. Toddler Boys’ Short Sleeve T-Shirt- Charcoal Grey
  6. Toddler Boys’ Pull on Skinny Jeans- Dark Blue
  7. Toddler Boys’ Long Sleeve Raglan T-shirt- Navy/Blue
  8. Toddler Boys’ Long Sleeve Plaid Button Down- Blue
