  • Charityrose, I'm also in the Austin Area. Goodwill here is actually more expensive than Target. Go figure?

    I strongly recommend looking at some of the lots people post on Craig's List and even on Freecycle. We have a very active community on both here.

    Also, hit the local boards here on Cafemom or even on Craigslist and see if you can find a mom with sons the right ages to swap with you. Like a mom with an 8 and a 6 year old! lol

    Unfortunately, I'm the opposite so I can't help at all. I have 1, 4 and 6.

  • I'm in the Houston area and I use freecycle some but find it hard to "be the first" in line for stuff unless you are on the computer all day. You can ask for things and maybe have a bit more luck. Decent thrift or resale shops are big here. Have you tried Ebay? I find prices are very reasonable nowdays. Ross, Walmart, Target and Marshalls are not bad for new clothes. Many times the sales are better than a thrift shop. Good Luck.
