Bean's winter wardrobe: $39

September 21st, 2010 at 09:28 pm

I hit the thrift store today looking for winter clothes for my 2.5 year old. I didn't expect to find anything, but came home with a giant bag of stuff.

Last year, I got him 7 pairs of pants and three sweaters for $18.

I scored, but didn't get by as cheap this year.

This year, I got him 5 pairs of pants, 5 sweaters, and a new winter coat for $39. Not too shabby, for what is essentially an entire winter wardrobe. Most of the brands were Old Navy or Nike, so no one will have to know how cheap they were! I noticed they charge more for the 4 and 5T than for the 24 month sizes, so I won't complain. It was still half of what I would have spent new, not including the coat, which is very nice and was only $4.

The little one will then be getting the big one's sweaters and pants from last year.

    Have you heard of these swapping sites for children's clothes? I don't have kids, so I have never used them, but it is an interesting idea. Kids' clothes are expensive even used.

    Hmmm. I've used Craigslist and such for toys, equipment, and clothes but never heard of that!
