When you have kids, you know how quickly they grow out of their clothes! Knowing how to buy clothes on the cheap can help you save a ton!
One of our favorite ways to save money on clothes for our kids(and ourselves) is at thrift stores. We have our favorite store that always has tons of nice clothes. We take a trip there about 4 times a year and stock up. Check your area for some great stores.
If you don’t have a nice thrift store near you, you can try consignment shops as well. I have shopped at a couple and I know you can find some very good deals there as well. The prices aren’t quite as low as thrift stores, but the quality is usually very good. You can also take in clothes you don’t wear or your kids have out grown and use the credit to get ‘new’ to you things.
When we need something more specific, we love to shop at off-retail stores like Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Ross and some outlet stores. We have been able to find some great quality clothes at a fraction of the price!
Check out online specials. I can’t tell you how many times we have found coupon codes for $10 off a $10 purchase where you can snag an article of clothing for close to free! These come and go very quickly so you have to check the site regularly to get in on them. Like last week THIS Old Navy Deal allowed me to get the jacket i had my eyes on a $60 for $25 PLUS some leggings for my daughter, and 2 thermal shirts for my daughter and 1 for my son for $57 Shipped. PLUS i had a $25 gift card from Expo TV. So I paid $32 out of pocket for my $60 jacket PLUS 2 leggings and 3 shirts!!
Don’t Forget to check out Garage sales in in your area and Craigslist I was able to get 20 gallon bins of clothes for my kids for $10!!
How do you save money on your family’s clothes?
