Hand me down's

Do you accept them or not? I will be the 1st to say HECK YES! I love hand me downs, they are a big help and with clothes being so pricey anymore, I never buy full price clothes. It either has to be on sale or clearanced and I will buy bigger sizes and save them. I also go to consignment sales and shops as well as good will and yard sales.

  • From most people, yes. There are some members of my husband's family that I don't even want thier stuff in my home. Everything they send smells like an ashtray and often laced with roaches. )c:

  • Big believer in hand me downs :) I have 7 siblings (same parents) and we all used to trade clothes around all the time with each other and cousins. We had so much fun every time a bunch of bags came from somebody. People were so nice, they were always giving us clothes :)

  • Mine hardly ever gets new clothes, except if I find a really good sale. Yard sales, consignment sales and shops, the only way to go with my budget.

  • Oh yes, I love hand me downs! When I was recently married and still in college, we found out we were having our son. We were tight on money as newlyweds working through college usually are. A girl who worked in the same building as me heard I was pregnant and one day she showed up with 7 or 8 giant trashbags full of almost new baby clothes, shoes, and accdessories. I didn't know what I was having yet and was already hoping for a boy, so thosebaby boy clothes really had me rooting for a boy! She gave me so many nice baby clothes that my son was set until he turned 2. It was a godsend. We still bought things, but those clothes made the difference. So, I made sure to pass them on as I took very good care of them. I have passed on all my sons clothes to someone who could really use them.

  • I have given them away. The worst was when I happen to tell my mil that I gave away a Tommy Hilfigier coat to my carpool friend. It was as if I gave away a million dollars.I have always been that way. Ever since then I refrained from soing so. But yes I given away a lot ...
