I used to be a slave to buying kids clothes thinking I had to keep up, fit in, and feel accepted. Finally after a bunch of cost, my children growing out of them too fast- I realized maybe I should try something different. Here are some snippets of my findings.
Both dresses KMart- on sale $5 a piece. Boots- $1.99 Goodwill
Shirt $1 Yard Sale/ Skirt $3 on sale at Walmart
Dress $1.49 Goodwill
Old Navy dress $2.49 at Goodwill
It's hard to cloth children at every season. Buying out of season helps me too. Almost all the winter clothes are on sale at summer and vice versa. My tips for Goodwill are to make sure all pieces of clothing are not stained, ripped, and in good condition. Also, don't be a slave to buying those expenseive hair bows. Mostly just something simple in your child's hair is so pretty.
Hope this helps did me!
