Clothing a teen girl

Luckily, my 15 year old is cool with the ultimate in reuse/recycle. We shop resale shops such as Plato's Closet and even hit Goodwill, every once in a while.

The blue jeans are already washed, so fit after shrinkage is not a problem. I have even found some Vera Bradley purses for myself!

My eleven year old daughter would rather throw her phone into the ocean before shopping at the Goodwill. I'm not that against reusing clothes as much as her, but honestly I'd rather hit the malls and outlets.

That's awesome, not only that you save so much but also that your daughter is learning not to over spend on clothing.

I'm excited for yard sale season! Such a great way to nab bargains. I especially like when organizations like the local high school band fundraisers hold them because then they're full of kids and teens clothing and toys, etc...

I've raised my kids on used clothing. They don't care much. My girls have had all name brand pants and I won't pay over $1 for them. I like thrift shops with bag sales. This one in town had a $1 bag sale. I went through all the girls jeans there and got 2 bags. If they will fit in a year or two I'll get them. I keep bins of clothes in my garage for them to grow into. I save alot of money that way.

I will also shop the clearance at stores and buy the summer clothes for the next summer and just put them away. My son is 18 months old and I'd say I didn't spend over $200 on clothes for him yet.

I get clothes from a friend for my oldest daughter and when my kids out grow it I know a girl that has 3 kids and always give all the clothes to her. It helps her out alot.
