I would like to know if there are any websites or stores to get cheap clothing for kids?

I have been checking out craigslist and my local thrift store. We are really short on cash and are looking for clothes for our girls dirt cheap or free if anyone knows any places.

  • Our Walmart has their summer shirts and short sets on sale for just $2.00 for kids. Otherwise, have you checked garage sales? You can also call your local help line to see if they can help you out in any way.

  • Check any area thrift stores. There are often very nice clothes available, nearly new, at very low prices.

  • Do you have a Once Upon a Child? Check yard sales. Basically if you buy it off line it is going to lose it's cheap factor because you have to pay for shipping, which can range anywhere from $3-$10+ depending on the place.

    Try going to a local church and asking for clothing donations, and if you do have cash give them a monetary donation.

  • Are you a member of a church? ask the pastor if there are any members who could donate clothes to you. If you are not a member of a church, find one and ask if they have any clothes you could have for free. One of my schools has a community center in the school that gives clothes, food, school supplies to the kids for free.

  • Check out freecycle or local swap groups on Facebook.

    Shirts range from $3 to $10 and shorts/pants
    are about $ 5 to $10.

  • See if there are any consignment shops in the area. It is tough to find decent kids clothes at the thrift shops.
