  • thrift stores might help!

  • Second hand stores have clothes in used but good condition. They are economic.
    Walmart and Kmart also usually have good prices.

    Can you patch up the holes your DS makes on his pants? Having to wear patched up pants might make him embarrassed enough to take better care of his clothes.
    How does your DD go through her clothes? Do they get damaged?
    Why does you 6 yo DS need new shoes every 6 months?

  • Go to Shop the monster sale. There is a coupon code for 15% off in a question from this morning. I think the jeans are only $15 before the mark down.
