i cant find any jeans that fit my daughter right except one pair that a friend gave to me. i cant afford them she went to baby gap.  i went online to look for a new pair and that is like 40.00 for the one she has. I dont get child support yet from my kids father and just started working my bills are due. How can i afford clothes that will fit her the right way. (before i get bashed i do mainly by walmart clothes for both my kids and go to yard sales and thirft shops

 I usually shop at Gap and Old Navy for my kids. I wait until they have sales. I never pay full price for anything there. I find their clothes although more expensive tend to last longer so it kind of equals out for me rather than having to buy cheaper clothes more often.

You can look on craigslist for used clothes. There is also a new website called thredup that is a swaping site for clothes. I have been hearing good things about it. Your best bet is to look for the items used.

There is also Craigs list. And Listia. Do you have a sewing maching? Get creative with buying second hand clothes and updating them.

 I usually only buy things for my daughter that are on clearance.  Oldnavy.com has some good stuff, a good pair of jeans is maybe like $11 or $12.  Kmart.com has some good stuff too, I got my daughter's entire summer wardrobe on that website for like $50 total.

Do you have a JCPenney near you? They've got an awesome sale going on. I got 2 pairs of Arizona jeans for my son for $15. I would have paid the same at WalMart. Most of WalMart's jeans are around $10... Children's Place, and Old Navy have them for $11. I find they are better quality, for a dollar or two more for a pair.
