My son is pretty young, and grows like a weed. Even so, he has a dresser and closet full of adorable clothing items, and boxes of clothes for the next two sizes up from what he currently wears. How did we accumulate so much clothing, when I stopped buying clothes a while ago? For one, we have an awesome family friend with two young boys just slightly older than my son. We graciously accept her boys' hand-me-downs. Accepting these clothes saves me not only money, but also time. Less time I have to spend hunting down adorable boy outfits, as she has already done all of the legwork! In return, I give my friend all of the diaper coupons I can, and sometimes a gift card that I earn online in exchange for a large piles of clothes and toys, even when she insists that she's happy just to get rid of the items. Secondly, our son's grandparents love shopping for their grandkids. As a result, our son is showered with toys and clothes beyond what he needs. Our family members insist giving gifts for holidays and birthdays, and they are thoughtful enough to ask what he needs first. We usually ask for practical items, like socks, a clothing item he needs, or his favorite snacks. While it may not last forever, I certainly am enjoying the huge savings we have been grateful to receive by not having to purchase kids clothes. How do you save money on kids clothes?
