Some kids' clothes can be purchased one size bigger without looking ridiculous (think hoodies, sweatshirts and pajamas).
Cut pants into shorts, add ruffles to add length to skirts and pants, and let out hems to stretch the lives of your kids' closet contents.
Sell gently used items
Sell outgrown clothing online or in a consignment store to supplement your current kids' clothes budget .
Cheap doesn't always equal savings
If it won't stand up on the playground and through a season's washes, then you'll end up buying more clothes in the long run.
Splurge once in a while
Buying a major item, even if it's at regular cost, may quench your desire to overspend on your kids' entire wardrobe.
Take inventory of your kids' clothes before you shop. This will help you avoid unnecessary purchases. Then, focus on filling in your kids' closet with clothes that coordinate with both the existing and the new wardrobe. Saving money on kids' clothes is a sure way to put the pleasure back into shopping!
