I don't know. Am I a bad mom

So, since I buy my kids clothes at consignment stores and goodwill.. My family thinks that I don't care about how they look since I buy poor people clothes for my kids. It really hurts my feeling since I can't really afford new clothes for them. And I don't see buying brand new clothes since they grow out of them so fast. What do you all think am I bad mom because I shop at consignment stores and goodwill for my kids clothes??

Hun that does not make you a bad mom plus you can't tell where you got it from unless there is a logo, hey goodwill has some nice clothes, even brand name ones, i have nice clothes from there, and im not ashamed of saying it

No, I would say you are a smart mom who knows how to save money.  They are being major jerks.  Just keep doing what you're doing and don't let them get to you.  :)

Sounds smart to me, they grow out of them so fast. You can get more for your money, Heck even Disney channel has been promoting "upcycling". Kids can make it their own.

Would be a much nicer thing to do to help out rather than criticize....I love when family looks down their nose at their own relatives. We catch enuf crap from the outside world...family should help, not berate.

Your family sound like jerks. I wouldn't be spending much time with them.

I don't NEED to buy used clothes for my kids but I enjoy doing so, especially for the younger kids. If you saw them, you would never be able to tell. I don't buy crap.

I can relax when they are wearing inexpensive clothing since I'm not stressing that they are ruining an outfit I payed a lot of money for.
