Every mom has had it happen. It's the first cool day of fall so your child puts on an outfit that hasn't been worn since April. That's when you realize just how much she/he has grown this summer. His pants look like capris and her long-sleeve shirts don't cover her wrists. Oops!

But who has time to keep up with all the shopping - let alone the latest trends the kids will wear?

Read below for quick tips on preventing the #FallClothingOops. Plus, 4 chances to win a clothes subscription box giveaway from kidpik and a promo code for $10 off your first order!

Tip #1: Get creative

When clothes seem too small, they don't always have to go right into the donation pile. Add leggings under a dress that's too short and it becomes a cute, long shirt. Layer shorter shirts over longer ones to add a little color. Or save t-shirts that are just a little tight to wear under sweaters - it will make the knits less itchy without adding bulk.

Tip #2: Make clothes last longer

Are you guilty of throwing as many clothes as possible into the washing machine and then shoving it all in the dryer? Big mistake. Experts say that overloading the washing machine, especially with a mix of fabrics, makes them wear out easier. And the heat from the dryer can damage or shrink many materials - even if it's just a little bit, this shrinkage can be the difference between jeans fitting for one year versus two. Instead, hang your favorite clothes on the drying rack. Also, before washing, turn any graphic tees inside out to save them a little longer - unless your kids like that faded look, of course!

Tip #3: Have the clothes come to you

Skip shopping altogether by signing up for a clothes subscription box. It avoids stressful trips to the mall and keeps your child's wardrobe fresh all year long. The kidpik fashion box for girls is convenient and stylish. It has a fun style quiz to help figure out what type of fashion your daughter likes: Girly, Trendy, Classic, or Sporty. You pick the frequency of the mailing, there is no styling fee, and they deliver for free 2-3 outfits, including shoes, to your home. Voila! You can easily return anything your daughter does not like.

    I air dry all our clothing on drying racks. Clothing lasts for years that way.

    I separate clothing by colors and whites and wash in cold water. I also separate by wash type, whether they need to be delicate, hand wash or regular. #fallclothingoops

    I use woolite, draft, and the lingerie shampoo from Nordstroms. These keep my clothes nicer, longer. And no high heat on the dry...low to medium does the trick (whirlpool duets).

    If you learn how to sew - even doing the simplest - you will save a fortune, by being able to make your own adjustments, repairs, and alterations.

    My son's full pants turns into capris, capris into shorts, air dry makes them look fresh and new after many washes. I knwo little sewing, so my daughter's frill frocks are turned into skirts.. Clothes can not be recycled.. but can be reused.. my belief :)
