Need opinions: Is this a good deal?

I am getting stuff for my girls for spring/summer: 


Maddie: size 12 months 41 tops & 36 bottoms


Emma: size 2T  25 tops, 33 bottoms, 1 bathing suit


All this stuff is gentle used (buying from a store online) 

Price is $405.15 but w/a 20% discount it would be $325.20

After this I don't plan on buying anything else except some shoes for both.

In my opinion, it seems like A LOT of clothes.  I have a 2 year old and know how quickly they can go through stuff but so much in one size might not be the best idea.  Just my thoughts.

I also think it it way too much clothes just my opinion. My best friend has a childrens consignment store and I used to help her. I think they are expensive. Goodwill has all kids clothes for .99 cents to 1.99. Salvation Army has 1/2 off all clothes today and one local thrift store in my area has all clothes 25 cents on wednesdays. I would also try Craiglist and maybe join Freecycle in your area--it would be free clothes. I cleaned out all my kids clothes in November and I got 71 hangers out of one closet. Yah --I will not do that again. Kids grow fast. In 2 months I am cleaning all the closets again. More stuff that no longer fits.

I have to agree.  That is ALOT of clothes for ALOT of money.  The 2T, she might be in all summer, but you might be lucky to keep the 12 month in for all summer.  That would really suck to spend that much and have to turn around and buy 18 month clothes half way through.

Well if you add up all the items, so 136 pieces, and you divide it by what you are going to spend $325.20 it ends up being about $2.40's a piece.  

Is that worth it to you?

I would be ok with spending $2.40 on each. 

Now if your worried about size and kids fitting it might not be a good idea because then you could be wasting $ if they never wear the items.

Sounds like way too much clothing. You can easily buy half that amount and be fine.
