Thrift Shopping and Free Clothing

Posted by   + Show Post

I have 5 children 3 step kids, 1 previous marriage and 1 mutual....Ages 10,8, 7, 5 (all boys) and a 9month old Baby Girl, I have been doing Freecycle and thrift shopping for their clothes and have done really well! But for my baby girl she weres 18months and I have not been able to get pretty much anything for her including shoes. Any Ideas? Winter is coming and she doesnt have a jacket either.

Yeah....girl's clothes seem to be harder to find than boys clothes.

I have tried that and have gotten stuff for my boys but haven't seen or been able to get any clothes for her...I started getting for 3t-4t

Freecycle.org too!
I post my daughter's old clothes on there all the time. You are also allowed to post one "wanted" a month (as long as you just put the basics and no begging or back story)
So post a wanted for winter clothes and surf through your local freecycle. People are always posting kids clothes. Craigslist free section too. The only downside is that you have to check pretty regularly to catch good stuff.

if freecycle isnt getting you any def ask the churches and check the FB YARD SALE AND FREEBIES pages for your area...there are tons of groups on FB and ppl post free items there as well

Do you have any kids' resales in your area? We have a huge twice annual one. Sundays are 1/2 price day, so I make out like a bandit.

Also, are there any facebook yard sale groups for your area?

Volunteers of America stores have one day a month where everything in their stores are half off, and our local Thrift Store is the same....just call and ask what the days would be, ours is the last Tuesday if the month and the Thrift Store is the first Wednesday of the month....
