  • Yea, I think I could. Babies R us has short and shirt sets for like 12 bucks each. They are super cute. Old navy has some really awesome sturdy sandles for like either 8 or 14 bucks.....I could do it.

  • Yup, by hitting garage sales. I find garage sales where I know there are clothes for his age, get there first thing in the morning, and look for the good clothes. The majority of his clothes still had price tags on them. I got his fall/winter clothes last year for less than $100.

  • If they stayed in the same size for the whole summer and I was somehow stopped from going shopping it wouldn't be too hard. I buy a lot from Kohl's (great sales), and a little from Target, J.C. Penneys, Wal-Mart, etc.

  • Holy cow, yes. Toddler clothes are cheap at Target and Walmart, for $3-$5 and item. They're going to be ruined and/or too small by the end of the summer, so it doesn't matter. I'll clothe that toddler and take mama out for some fun for $200.
