*** Thanks for all the great suggestions ladies!! My DS always gets hand me downs from my sister because she has two older boys. I've had all the way up to 5t since he was born!! And it's all in nearly new condition because that's just how my sister rolls. DD is the only girl on both mine and DH's sides. (until 4 months ago when I had DD2.) So I always have to buy her clothes. Usually I hit up garage sales and thrift shops and stock up on larger sizes. But this past year has been a drain finacially and I wasn't able to. But get this, a woman from our church gave me 4 large large shopping bags full of sizes 5 and 6. Jeans, sweatshirts, tshirts, couple pairs of sneakers, even unopened packages of socks and underwear. She is the Sunday school director. She said she realized DD was the oldest girl in our family and it wasnt fair she was never given things. So she asked her granddaughter from Texas (who has a daughter just a lite older than DD) to send her her dd's old clothes. I'm in awe. All we need now are tennisshoes and school supplies!!! I'm so geeked. But now that I'm doing better financially I can stock up for next year too. :)
DD is going into K. I have maybe $200 to spend on school supplies, clothes & shoes for her plus shoes for DS because he's outgrown his.
How many outfits should I plan on getting her? Where can I go that has cheap cheap CHEAP stuff? IS there a place I can get name brand stuff for less money?
