How much do you buy/spend?

Roughly how much money would you say you spend on clothes for your kids for the year? And roughly how many days worth of clothes? I shop clearance year rough so for 3 kids I spend about $400 a year right now. Once the baby isnt switching through sizes so fast should come down close to $300. I like to have roughly 2wks worth of season appropriate clothes per kid. Plus that amount includes special event outfits.

Mine are 18 and 22. So they buy their own now. But typically it was about 300 per child, per season.

I spend around $150 a year but that is mostly for shoes, and things that I see that are cute.  My InLaws keep DD dressed in clothes from their DD that is 7 months older than mine.

Not a lot. They get a lot of clothes as gifts. I've probably spent $300 this past year, and that's with a baby growing out of clothes left and right, and my 3yo.
They have waaay too many clothes. I could go weeks without doing laundry.

Probably about $500.00 a year. We buy new clothes in spring and fall. Those clothes last them through the other seasons. We live in Louisiana and the weather is usually pretty mild during winter, so fall clothes are fine with a coat. 

We do pick things up through out the year if we see things they like or if something needs to be replaced. My kids are 9 and 4 and have been in the same sizes for what seems like forever...lol. They are big kids though. My son is in men's medium with a 9.5 men's shoe, and my daughter is in a 10/12 in bigger kids clothes.

We're lucky because the kids wear uniforms to school so that cuts down on the cost, but we spend about $1000 a year for 2 kids.  That's for about a week's worth of clothes, not including sports uniforms/practice wear.
