Getting the best deal on children’s clothes is easy to do if you know how to shop smart. There are several things you can do that will help you save money on kid’s clothes. Here are some ways to get the best deals on clothes for your kids.
Shop Thrift Stores
Thrift stores are a great place to find children’s clothes for cheap. Since kids outgrow clothes so quickly you will want to stock up on clothes that will fit them now and clothes that will fit them in the near future. Thrift stores are good for this because they often have the cheapest prices you will be able to find. Make friends with the staff of a thrift store and ask them to let you know when new shipments of kid’s clothes come in, so you can get there while you still have a good selection.
Shop Discount Department Stores
Discount department stores usually have a kid’s section, so check them out if you had no luck at the thrift store. Many discount department stores make it possible for you to purchase higher end brands of clothes for less than those clothes would cost you somewhere else. This is perfect for parents who have a fashion conscious kid because it allows parents to let their kids dress in style without breaking their budget.
If there is a flea market or yard sale near you, go see what you can get. Many people sell their kid’s clothes at flea markets and yard sales after the kids have outgrown them or just don’t like them anymore. These places can be a gold mine when it comes to stocking up on children’s clothes that are easy on your budget. This also allows you to avoid the chaos of going into a department store to shop for clothes. Flea markets and yard sales provide for a more laid back shopping experience. Sometimes you can negotiate prices with flea market vendors or individuals participating in a yard sale.
If you have friends, co-workers or neighbors that also have kids, try to set up a clothing swap. This is where people bring in kid’s clothes that aren’t wanted or needed anymore and trade those clothes with others. A clothing swap can be a fun way to interact with other parents and obtain some children’s clothing without having to spend money to do so. Just because your child doesn’t like a piece of clothing or can’t wear it doesn’t mean that someone else’s child won’t want it.
These are effective ways to get kid’s clothes and keep them stocked with the clothes they need as they grow and mature. Keeping up with new trends in kid’s clothes can help you learn where other parents shop and which stores have the best deals. Paying attention to the clothing stores you frequent can help you catch sales that you can take advantage of.
Tights in bright colors are the latest trend in clothing for girls. A girl can wear them to help keep her legs warm when she wears a skirt or a dress. Or, she can pull them on as the finishing touch to an awesome outfit. Discover some of the ways that girls are incorporating colorful tights into their clothing ensembles.
Denim skirts are a perennial favorite with many girls. The skirt could be dark denim, acid-washed or a very light shade of denim. In any of those instances, a pair of colorful tights for girls instantly dresses up the appearance of a denim skirt. Some girls match the color of their tights with their sweater or t-shirt. Other young girls like to go with tights in their favorite color no matter which top they choose to wear. Either way, a pair of tights gives this denim outfit an extra dash of flair!
A colorful pair of tights can also be worn with a long sweater. Today, some girls wear sweaters that are so long they can be mistaken for a dress! Tights allow a girl to wear a favorite long sweater and cover her legs in stylish fashion. Some girls like to match their tights with a design in the sweater. For example, if a girl wears a white and red sweater she may pair it with red tights. There are plenty of appealing choices. One example of an online store that sells tights for girls is We Love Colors.
It’s May already and I haven’t started sorting out the stuff that I would like to sell at the garage sale here in our neighborhood. This month is the best month to do a garage sale, you know. Besides getting mostly fair weather, lots of people go to a garage sale between April and May than June and July because the latter months are very hot because it’s summer. Even me myself doesn’t like driving around hunting for garage sales in the summer.
Here’s some of the items I need to get rid of:
1. Newborn clothes – just some of them because I will give a few selection to a friend’s upcoming baby girl.
2. Infant clothes – a few of then needs to go because I already save some for my new niece back home.
3. Infant toys – aside from giving a few to my new niece, I am going to sell the rest in the garage sale
4. Women’s shoes – I have a few pairs of shoes that I don’t wear anymore.
5. Women’s clothing – There are some clothes that I don’t wear anymore. I already gave some of them to my younger sisters, cousins, niece, and young girls back home.
6. Kitchen electrics – we have a couple or four electrics we need to get rid of
7. Office equipment and office supplies – well, my hubby have old office equipment that needs to go.
What I need right now is plenty of time to gather them all together and segregate. A week maybe? Wish me luck. As I have lots of stuff to do online and offline, hopefully I can still manage to take care of the things that will help me earn extra money. Moms like me who want to earn extra bucks will always find little ways to make money online or offline. My cousin had already started selling stuff and I also want to join the garage sale in her neighborhood.
Clocks were an hour forward and Spring will officially start in 2 days. DST or Daylight Savings Time is on again. I am sure some of us are still adjusting to the time especially when putting our kids and toddlers to bed. We can’t get used to it until a few days passed.
Holy Week is next week. Then Easter Sunday comes. My family and I are going to church for the Easter Sunday Mass. Then we’ll go to an Easter Egg Hunt at a friends house where she also hosts her young boy’s birthday party. We won’t be seeing the grandparents on Easter Sunday because of the early commitment. Almost the same reason in the next three weekends. So, my husband and I decided that we (darling daughter and I) go to Tyler next Thursday during the Holy Week. My mother-in-law said she doesn’t have something going on that day so it’s fine to come over. For the very first time, my little girl and I will be traveling without daddy. It will be quite difficult because I don’t have two extra hands to help me with stuff. But I am confident that we’ll be fine.
For the Easter Egg Hunt, I already bought an Easter dress for my little one. There are so many pretty, cute Easter and Spring dresses, and toddler outfits in stores and online. I cannot help myself checking on them. Little girls’ clothes are just adorable!
Hair bows from my friend in Fort Worth.
Birthday presents from my former student who is now in Missouri.
I received these lovely presents from my friends in the mail a couple of weeks ago. They’re so sweet and thoughtful to send DD some hair bows and toddler clothes. The hair bows are very pretty and the pajamas fit fine on DD.
Though we don’t see each other often, my friends don’t forget to express their sweetness. We are all busy moms but hopefully we’ll be able to get together again in the near future. It will come very soon, I know.
