  • Children's Place runs great sales! I don't usually buy anything there full price, but the sales are amazing. I tend to buy a few pieces from places like Old Navy, Justice, Children's Place and then mix that in with cheaper "staples" (white tshirts, denim shorts, etc) from WalMart or Target. They still have cool looking clothes, but my money goes farther that way.

  • I have to agree with the other answers. My daughter is 9 and we typically shop at Penneys, Kohls, Target, Justice and Children's Place. Kohls, Childrens' Place and Justice do run very good sales. When she was a baby I mostly bought from Kohls... I'm sort of an addict there! They roll out the red carpet when I walk in. :)

  • I have a son and 3 daughters and a baby on the way! I go to once upon a child and sell clothes that are too small, and buy there also! It is resale, but they are extremely picky! I love the place maybe not for you, but check it out before you form an opinion!

  • Hands down, the cheapest and cutest is childrensplace.com. They have Monster Sales and everything is under $5. And $5 shipping no matter how much you buy. I rarely buy anywhere else. I can't believe others think it's expensive. I often have bought shorts and T shirts for $3 - $4 a piece. I also like Old Navy and Justice if you have a 40% off coupon.
