Baby clothing - stocking up

My ladybug is 7m. I stock up on end of season clearance clothing for next year. It was brought to my attention yesterday that Walmart had their winter Garanimals brand clothing normally $3.88 each, on clearance for $1 a item.

I started thinking why not save $ on clothing for more than just next years size. I bought a few plastic tubs, and ended up getting items from 18m -5T.

Yes I got 5 of the exact same tops, pants, and skirts in all of the sizes. All the items I found in a few different colors.  So I also have say 3 of the same size top, but all different colors.

They are plain basic long sleeve tops, pants, and skirts with leggings. I ended up spending $86 on all these and normally would of been a cost of $333

So I am quite happy that I have saved my self money on my kids clothing. I am already now planning to do the same with the summer clothing IF they have the items discounted this low again. I am guessing that the summer items will be discounted this loe in September maybe.

Usually summer markdowns start in July when the back to school stuff comes out. Then it just depends how quickly they mark things down. Up here people wait until July to buy the summer stuff on clearance because June is pretty warm but July and August can be brutal, we sometimes get snow into may though.



Great score!
