Sit down and look at what each of your kids need for new clothes. Do they need new pants or long sleeve shirts? Make a list of what you have to buy so you don't end up getting unnecessary items. Then wait for sales!


What do you kids need this year?

Gym shoes, new socks and undies, bras for older dd, long sleeve shirts, 2-3 new sweaters, new spirit wear hoody, and probably a few new skirts each. I went through their closets and drawers today (inspired by the posts of the past few days), everything fit surprisingly!! I will need to start picking up jeans for the next size up (14) for older dd, she is currently a 12 and younger dd is a 10, so older dd's jeans will go straight to younger dd's drawers and youngest dd's jeans will go straight to the donate bag !

youngest DS will probably need some jeans eventually.  He keeps getting taller.

DD needs a couple more bras, probably some new panties, some jeans.  Otherwise she wears my clothes (big sigh).

15 yr old DS doesn't need anything.

No much, other then clothes, and shoes.  I think we will need a few school supplies, but not as many as before.

 We will be going through many of their clothes over the next week or so.  Local thrift shops do not yet have fall clothes out, so I've got plenty of time.

MIL did buy them new shoes and socks which was a huge financial help to us.  I'm hoping the majority of what they have still fits until Christmas, with just a few need to buy things.

He needs, jeans, shirts, shoes, back pack, shorts, more socks and boxers.
He went from a uniformed school to high school. So he has to have all new clothes.
