Five Ways to Save Money on Your Children's Clothes

Over the years I have found some great ways to save money on clothes for my children. Here our my five most favorite ways:



Accept all offers of free clothes


If someone offers you their children's outgrown clothing accept it even if their style is not the same as yours. There could be basic pieces or pajamas that will be just fine to wear even if they are a bit worn out.

Go to rummage sales and children's clothes sales 


Rummage sales have great prices for children s clothes. You might have to drive around to get to a good one but look for upscale neighborhood holding multiple family rummages to get the most out of your time and gas money. I also love children s clothes sales that are held in churches by a group of moms prices can be a bit higher than normal rummages but no driving around and usually everything is sorted out and organized to make it a faster shopping experience


Shop at consignment stores either online or bricks and mortar


Great clothes can be found either online at consignment shops and at bricks and mortar stores  Prices vary but deals can be found especially on name brand clothing


Online stores that sell used clothes 



Ebay can be a great source of children s clothes try to buy in a set or outfit to get the most out of you shipping price. Also Thred Up is a fantastic store that offers nice gently used clothing at fair prices


Shop Clearance racks 


Shop the clearance racks at stores especially buying for the next year sizes. Make sure even if it is a good deal that it will fit them and that it will stay in style (sometimes clothes on the clearance rack are there because no none wanted them since they were not an appealing style)


***Lastly not a place to shop but a great tip I like to pass along is to buy name brand clothing for you children at the above places. When you children are done with the name brand clothes you can turn around and resell them on Ebay or a consignment shop to help you offset the cost of their clothing. I usually use the money I earn by doing that to buy the next seasons clothing for them most of the time I can come out that I have to pay very little extra for the next season after I sell their grown out clothing from the previous one.

To My Daughter on Her Square One Graduation

Our church has a wonderful student learning program called Square One. It is an intensive Bible Study for 6th through 8th grades where they dig deep into the Bible, memorize verses and the books of the Bible. My daughter recently graduated from the program and at the graduation celebration the parents were to bring a letter they wrote to share with their child. Here is mine:


I am so proud of you and how you are growing into such a wonderful God loving person. You have grown so much developing skills that will help you for a lifetime. I love how you are filled with the Lord's love and show it to all around you. You have grown so much this year in Square One not only in your knowledge of the Bible but in getting closer to God. It has been so wonderful all the scripture you have memorized. Those scriptures will always be there to help guide you throughout your life.

My prayer for you is that the Lord blesses you with his wisdom and helps guide you in your life. That you grow closer to …

Works For Me Wednesday How to Save Money on Books

I love to read books but our budget doesn't allow me to spend much money on that hobby so I have devised a way to read great books at no cost.

When I see a book that I find interesting on someone's blog or Facebook post that directs me to Amazon I put that book into my wishlist on Amazon. Then when I have time or the need for a new book to read. I go to my library system's online search catalog and refer back to my Amazon wishlist and see if any of the titles are available.

I can put them on hold and I get an email from my library when they are available. This little trick has saved me so much money over the years. I have been able to read some wonderful books that otherwise I could not afford.
