Clearance and Deals
I love shopping the clearance rack or waiting for deals from my favorite stores!
Last year at Crazy 8 they had a deal where if you bought one item full price the other item was .89 cents. I love crazy 8 for cute clothes for my toddler, so I got several outfits at a great deal!
There tend to be great deals around holidays and when seasons change. You can also stock up on last seasons clothes for next year once they go on sale!
Make it yourself or Mend old clothing
Sewing is the best homemaking skill I’ve ever learned! I make my children’s clothes, nursery bedding, and home decor. I also mend our clothes constantly.
My toddler tore a hole in her brand new Pajamas. I just sewed a cute patch over it and good as new! I’m always mending my husband’s clothes pajamas as well as work pants.
I recommend this sewing machine.It’s inexpensive and great for beginners.
Buying clothes doesn’t have to cost a fortune if you do it right. Just look for the best deals and your family will be ready for the seasons to come! Do you have tips for saving money on clothes?
