i actually don't shop much for my family's clothes. we have friends with older kids and they pass down a lot of their clothes. and since i have 2 girls, the clothes get passed down again from my oldest to youngest. when i do shop, i tend to shop at target mostly since the prices are low and super cute! another thing that has helped is to not care all that much about how my kids dress or what they wear. things always have to be weather appropriate and modest, but otherwise i let them wear whatever they want, so the latest fashions don't matter much!
