Second hand clothing? I do. Well, actually I don't "make" them, but that's what I buy or get from friends normally. My DD9 loves it because she knows that she gets way more clothes this way than she does when I do shop at the store. I'm sure this won't last forever as she gets older she'll want new stuff which is understandable, but getting clothes second hand is a HUGE money saver for my family! I think I spend about $100/year if that, on two kids buy going to the big church rummage sales twice a year and getting what they need. Plus I usually buy new boots, coats, snow pants, in Feb when they're super discounted at the stores. So those are almost always new, but I never pay a lot for them. What do you do to save money on kids clothing?

I don't MAKE them do i t but I buy them that way and they have yet to complain but they are still young, too.  I'll save while I can and even once they start asking I'll probably try to save somehow!
