I'm sure a lot of people already do this, but I shop for my 9 year old daughter at second hand stores. Mainly Goodwill. There used to be a negative stereotype attached to anything that came from these types of places. But it only makes sense ,no matter what tax bracket your in, when u have a growing child. At elementary school age, you will be lucky if they wear something an entire year! Especially pants and shoes. U would be amazed at how many designer brand childrens clothes I have found at Goodwill. For example......Bobby Jack t shirt $1......JLO jeans $4......Aeropostle hoodie $2......MUDD jacket $2.......Chuck Taylor shoes #3. I have even found BRAND NEW backpacks for $2! Thre's so much more that I can't even think of right now. Just make sure u check the item for holes or stains. And they DO take returns.
Happy shopping ladies!!
