I went today and got my boys some nice name brand clothes for less than $30. I spent 100$ total (at the buckle & penny's also) and got dh 2 shirts, and a pair of jeans. my oldest 2 pairs of jeans and 3 shirts and my baby a pair of jeans, overalls, sweatpants and a shirt.

I think I got an amazing deal.


eta- my only thrift store buys were a pair of joker brand jeans (with tags) an element shirt (with tags) 2 more longsleeved (old navy) and carters overalls, sweats, and a onsie for baby. It was $23 and some change. 


the rest was brand new but I think it was still a good price for everything.

No... I used to, but my husband is more arrogant than I am and won't wear used clothes... won't allow the kiddo to wear them either

Sometimes , tbh I don't care if its brand name or not. As long as it looks good.

Pretty much the only place I shop. I do buy new things from time to time, if the sale price is cheap enough. :)

Yes I do especially for my two youngest, since they are still having growth spurts..

Eh, I've done better at consignment sales.

I am not opposed to it, but i have a really hard time finding anything so I don't usually bother. I get most all of DS's (he's 3) clothes at garage sales, as hand-me-downs from relatives, and then a few pieces from a kid's resale shop. Mine, I buy all brand new, usually off the clearance rack.
