Do your kids have a lot clothes, but not a lot that really goes together? Today's challenge is to have a strategy on your next shopping trip! A game plan when you shop will help you make the most of your kids' wardrobes.

  • Buy clothes that can be mixed and matched to create new multiple outfits.
  • When you're shopping try to focus on buying what's missing from their wardrobe.

Do you usually go shopping for your kids in big trips a few times a year or smaller trips as things are needed? Do buy things one piece at a time or do you buy complete outfits?

I mostly do smaller trips. I like to buy complete outfits but sometimes just one piece catches her eye.

We go in smaller trips as things are needed.  We buy whatever we need at the time.

We buy several times a year. Usually I pick up basic jeans and t-shirts and things when the clothes go on clearance when the seasons change.  Then if the kids need somethine more or we see something they like I pick it up later.

smaller trips, frequently and I buy whats needed. if it is a better store (PS by Aero, Gymboree, etc) I will try to buy up a size as the material will usually withstand an extra year of washings.

As my dd has gotten older I have just started buying blue jeans, denim skirts and khaki pants, that way all the tops she wants will match all the bottoms no matter the color. We usually go out of town on 1 huge shopping trip over summer vacation and I buy as much as I can. Then I will just order/buy things as needed.
