- Hand me downs are awesome, especially if you have two of the same sex child in a row. If you have a core group of friends that are willing to share or even just hand down clothing, this can bulk up your child's wardrobe immensely.
- Second hand is great if there is something you really can't afford or need something in a hurry for. I live in a desert but, if I go North or somewhere much cooler I would rather get a second hand coat than go buy a new one that my child will wear once, maybe two times in a season.
- Sewing-If you sew, add a few pieces that your child will love. Let them help you pick out the material.
- Clearance-Anyone that knows me, knows that I don't pay regular price for pretty much anything unless I absolutely have to. I love going to end of season sales and getting stuff from $1 to $5 a piece. I've picked up shoes, pants, dresses, shirts, etc. for that low of a price. I also pay attention to how my kids trend size wise. I calculate where they would be in the next few seasons and purchase ahead of time. I've purchased whole seasonal wardrobes that way and save some serious money.
Thanks so much for stopping by and checking out my clothing purchasing tips!
Have a great week!
