  • We love Tanger Outlet Mall. They have huge discounts on stores like old navy, gap, osh kosh, carters, sketcher store... I went a week ago and got my son a 3 piece outfit from osh kosh (shorts, tshirt and button up shirt to go over it) for $7.00...

  • I've already finished the clothes part. We are keeping the non-stained things that still fit and I filled in the gaps at second hand places. The only things I buy new are clearance items marked way down from last year and underwear. All total, we didn't spend more than about $30-$40 on all of her school clothes.

  • I find a lot for my kids at thrift stores. They still get new things too, usually from Kohls, Kmart, Target, JCPenney on the sale racks or everyday low prices.

  • Thrift and consignment shops for clothing; clearance racks for shoes; Loehmann's for both.
