We've all heard of the concept of "hand-me-downs", I'm sure! Y'know, that system wherein you, being the younger/youngest sibling, "received" the clothing that your older sibling(s) wore and no longer fit. I certainly had my fair share of "hand-me-downs", as I grew up in a household with multiple siblings and a "restricted" budget, as, I'm sure, many of us did. It wasn't my favorite thing to do. Hey! I wanted brand new clothes...the same all of my friends were wearing, but y'know, after a while, it really didn't matter much to me what I wore, as long as it was clean and fit okay! However, in modern times, I've heard some parents say that they would never encourage their children to wear "hand-me-downs", simply because they'd prefer to buy new clothes for each child, so that each child can feel like an individual and not feel "less-than" their older siblings. For my personal take, I'm still gonna practice it with my kids, because I believe it's a great way to save when it comes to buying/not having to buy extra clothes! Plus, my kids will probably want new versions of the very same thing. So, what do you think? Do you think that the concept of using "hand-me-downs" to save on clothes is outdated? Or should more and more parents practice this, to save?
