Project 365

By Kate |

Have you heard of the 365 Project? It’s an attempt to document your life in photos – One picture. Every day. One year. It’s quite the challenge, and I’m sure I’ll stumble at some point but I’m taking a stab. But, to keep myself motivated and interested (because my life really isn’t that interesting) I’m putting my own twist on the 365 Project. I am focusing on my kids’ clothes.

You read that right. Their clothes. Yep, every day I’ll share a picture of one or both of my kids and tell you a little something about what they’re wearing.


Shallow? Perhaps. But, let’s face it, my children have wardrobes that put mine to shame. They have some adorable stuff. Some of it they outgrow too fast, some days we never leave the house to show off their duds, and sometimes they make such a mess eating that an outfit doesn’t make it past breakfast. Because I can now share their outfits daily, the 365 Project is now my new justification for all their clothes. (Which reminds me, a big “thank you” to whoever invented this and gave me a new *grrreat* excuse.)

I have no idea how long I’ll be able to keep this up. But I do know my kids wear something every day. So I do have that going for me. I hope you’ll pop on over every now and then to check it out: The Shopping Mama presents… 365 Days of Children’s Clothes.

Do you have a Project 365 blog? Link up! I’d love to visit and check it out.



Kate started The Shopping Mama™ in January 2009 when, after graduating law school, she traded in online legal research and writing for locating the best products for children. She shops for three kids ages 8, 6 and 3 from their home in Japan. Her military family is making the most of back-to-back overseas assignments by traveling every chance they get.

    We are actually in the process of going through our daughters photos for her 1st birthday. We took pictures of her everyday since she was born (okay, we missed about 5 days total). I am going to make a book of these photos with on page per month and present it at her party. Good luck with your blog!
