I got bored so I decided to look through my older daughters  pants to see what will fit her for when school starts. I wanted to count and see how many pairs she had to see if I needed to buy more. I figured I had enough since I like to try to buy ahead at yard sales and thrift stores and had a drawer full of jeans. I went through them and 4 pairs of the size 12 and 2 pairs of the size 14 are to small. So there went over half of the pants I had for her. Now I need to hopefully sell them so that i can but her some more that will fit her. I also have to try to find some long sleeve shirts for her since almost all of hers are to short. My son has out gorwn some of his shirts getting taller, but her weighs oretty much the same as he did last year so most of his fit, all though he has torn the knees out of most of them. that worrys me too that he hasn't gained or grown much. He is now 4' 9 1/2" and 78lbs. Melila is 4' 7" and 85lbs. My younger daughter won't stop growing either and is 50lbs and 3' 10". They are 11, almost 9 and almost 5.

There are some great sales right now.  I think Target is having jeans for $10 this week.

 I waish we had a target here. I got one pair at Walmart a week or so ago, but they didn't have any more in the size I wanted. i bought a size up too from what i thought she would need and sure enough they fit her for this year. I will have to check again when we go grocery shopping thursday

 I will be checking thrift stores. I volunteer at one and will check there tomorrow while I volunteer and then will check the other ones. One has a $3 bag sale for clothes once a month, although I haven't had much luck for jeans there

I got ds new clothes last year for school and then he hit a growth spurt and outgrew ALL of his pants by Christmas! I made sure to buy his pants a little bigger this year.
