  • Shop on holidays.

Do you bring your kids along when you are clothes shopping for them? Do you usually pay full price for things or wait until they go on sale?

I always wait til things go on sale. And I try to use coupons. I got my daughter's bathing suit on sale, and with a 5 dollar off coupon on bathing suits, so it came out to 4 bucks. I used a coupon on her winter coat just recently for $5 off and it was on sale for ten off already.

All of her play clothes, I try to get at the thrift store, partly because the money goes to Easter Seals, and the other part is that she's only 18m and I don't want to pay more than a few bucks for something she'll just grow out of in a couple months (minus a good coat and shoes)

 I usually always take my daughter.  She wants to pick out her own clothes, which I fully support.  She has great taste so it works.  Anyway I always buy on sale.  I hate paying full price.

I do bring my kids shopping.  I check things on sale first but if I don't find anything I like, I have no problem paying full price.

We really only clothes shop for back to school and I do bring them along to help.  We try to look for things on sale a lot.
