Keep a bin, basket or box in a child's closet and one by the front door. As things become too small for the child, place them in the box if they will become hand-me-downs for the next child. When full, toss the clothes in a quality plastic kitchen garbage bag, mark what size and season and toss in the attic. They'll be fine for 3 years, I've tested it! If they are to be donated or consigned, place them in the basket by the front door. When the basket is full, put it in your car and make a trip to your favorite charity.

Organizing Workshop: "Understanding Chronic Disorganization"
Discussion will include organizing approaches and methods that are unconventional
and designed for the creative personality and individuals with attention
inconsistencies who continually struggle with organization.
In this workshop, you'll learn how being organized helps you
direct your day, instead of your day directing you with
constant distractions. Come prepared with some ideas about
where you'd like to direct your creative energy. For
example, this could be learning a new hobby, setting up a
small business, getting involved with local politics,
redecorating your home, or creating cooking classes. We'll
discuss obstacles that are sure to arise and how to avoid
them or, at least, overcome them with ease! You'll
understand how being organized is so much more than being
neat-how it allows you freedom for growth and creativity.
