Kid's Resale Shops
I consider myself lucky, I have two boys ages 5 and 2 both born during the winter season. What this means to me, is that boy #2 gets all the "hand me downs". When he needs "new" clothes I just go down to the basement and bring up the next size from our bins of clothes. I never need to buy him anything, except socks! Sometimes I feel guilty, but then again I get to use all my clothes twice and it a great budget saver!
Now for my oldest son, I need to shop for him and one way I like to shop is at resale shops. We have a wonderful one in the city where I live in which I frequent every couple of months. Now granted, I do not believe you purchase your child's entire wardrobe at a resale shop, what I do believe is that you can pick up a couple pieces to add to his closet.
Well today I stopped into browse, and I found 3 really nice items. One of which (the blue polo) still had the original Old Navy tags, BINGO! I ended up spending $12.55 for a pair of dress pants and two polo shirts. Now that is what I call a bargain!
