Saving Money on Kids' Clothes: Thrifting for Fall Styles Now
[Editor's Note: As a mom of two same-sex children, I know exactly what Kristia at Family Balance Sheet is talking about. My younger son has a whole slew of clothes each season, leaving me to start my older sons' wardrobe from scratch each time. I love her idea about thrifting first. -Jenna]
I have two daughters and one benefit of having same sex siblings is that my youngest is the beneficiary of a mighty fine wardrobe, season after season.
I don't have that luxury with my oldest daughter. She doesn't receive any hand-me-downs, so I find myself building her wardrobe at the beginning of every season. I guess I could go to Target or Children's Place at the beginning of every season, but that could get expensive. Also, I rarely frequent the mall and I'm trying to avoid Target, so I usually miss out on the end of season bargains.
I am having a lot of luck with thrifting this spring.
