A couple of weeks ago i gae maddy $200 for clothes.   She found some really good deals. Garage was having a sale on jeans and she got like 5 pairs for like $10 each.  I'm pretty sure she had to buy 5 to get hte $10 each. 3-4 tops from Forever 21 a couple of dresses from forever 21.  some underwear from VS and i'm pretty sure she had left over $$ that she banked.

I gave tori $200 this past weekend and she bought 2 paris of jeans, 2 shirts  both crop tops one a tank crop. and socks and 1 dress.  thats it.

BAck when I was buying their clothes not that far.  Now that they both buy their own they would have several bags of clothes they bought on sale for that much.

It depends on what brands they're buying, what stores, is the stuff on sale, etc.

I’m a bargain hunter. I hate paying regular price. The teen HATES shopping. We got a good thing going. He tells me what he likes and what he doesn’t and I do his shopping. I see a lot of online shopping when he gets older.

I can do a lot for $200 as long as I don’t need to get sneakers. The larger his feet get the harder it is to save on shoes.

DD would probably be able to get quite a bit.

DS would look at us annoyed and ask: "WHY do I have to do the shopping?"  Then he would just buy basketball shorts and hoodies.

I will never forget the first time my oldest came home with a bag of clothes bragging how she got it all for like $25.  When I was buying she wouldn't have hesitated to have my spend $40 on one shirt and she got several for $25.

Lol.

Mine does love a good resale shop. But she also doesn’t mind when daddy’s money gets her the latest and greatest.

Not far for us. My daughter only does one big trip every few years though so I don’t mind. A pair of jeans and 2 shirts maybe. She lives in her sweats and school T-shirts most the time and those last forever. I may pick up a pair if I see a sell or if she is out and sees some she wants.

My dd could get quite a bit because her favorite store is Plato's Closet with the clearance section of Rue 21 being her second. She recently got 4 shirts, 2 pair of shoes, 2 dresses, and a pair of jeans for $40 at Rue. She bought several pairs of jeans at Platos.
