Buying clothes for your kids can be expensive, what with them growing all the time and changing their tastes in fashion as they get older. However, shopping on a budget is possible by knowing where to go for discounts, which outlets sell the cheapest clothes and when to buy.
Choosing the right time to buy clothes is imperative. January sales were great, as many retailers got rid of any clothes they didn’t sell from their winter collections, while before retailer release a new range, you can always buy end-of-season clothes for discounted prices.
Shopping a year ahead is something a lot of moms do by buying a size or two bigger. This can save time and money. Going to discount stores is great too, especially if you plan on buying ahead.
To save money entirely, you could always use clothes older kids wore as hand-me-downs. This might not be ideal for older kids, but if you have any toddlers, they’ll happily wear older clothes, especially when indoors.
Shopping online can help you to buy kids clothes on a budget. Swedish kids clothes retailer Polarn O. Pyret have a 20% sale on now on kid’s coats, something I wouldn’t have known if I didn’t do a Google search beforehand, and I didn’t even have to leave the house! They also have sales offers for their international stores too.
I look at buying layered clothing, especially for the cold winter months. This stops the kids complaining about being cold, plus they last for a while. Hybrid clothing like jeggings are great too, as they can be worn indoors and outdoors.
To make more savings, I try to look for online vouchers. They can get me discounts of at least 5% on what I buy, plus they can be used with a variety or retailers. Some retailers also have their own membership cards which entitle me to further savings if I spend a certain amount online or in store too, which is pretty neat!
