Go to Tricks to save money on kids clothes

Sep 6, 2018
Clothes are expensive!  No kidding, and as much as I love some Target, I get really tired of buying clothes that don't last.  That or they pill, and shrink when I wash them. I have some money saving ideas, that don't mean sacrificing quality...

That's why I'm sharing my go-to-tricks for saving money on kids clothes!

Clearly only the little one thinks I'm funny.  Clothing from McAdoodle.

1. Find your local kids consignment store.  


High end kids clothes are built to last.  The real truth is that they are often really too expensive.  Especially when your son comes home with a brand new shirt that he has cut with scissors.  I'm not naming names, but you get the drift. HA!  My first go-to tip is to find your local consignment boutique.  My favorite one here in Maryland is McAdoodle.  Susanne, the owner, is a mama of three, and an amazing boss mom.  Remember that shirt my son cut?  It was his favorite, and he was devastated.  Susanne found it for me, ordered it, and made it happen.  You should definitely follow them on Facebook, and Instagram (which leads me to my next tip).

2.  Use social media


Most of the really good, and professional consignment stores will ship for a nominal fee (or none at all).  If you have the love for all things Boden applique (like me), sometimes it takes some looking.  And those Hanna Andersson pants that my son can't wear a knee through?  I have gotten some NEW WITH TAGS from McAdoodle consignment.  And with the retail cost being about $50, that is great news!

3.  Resale apps are your friend.

What is this I say?  Yes.  Resale apps are bae.  You may use Poshmark for yourself, but did you know that they sell kids stuff too?  I got a like-new LL Bean Backpack (for travel) for $20.  It is over $100 retail.  Other ones I love are threadUP and Kidizen.  Apps you say Christy?  Those are websites.  Indeed.  I have the apps on my phone, so when I remember that I need a sparkle dress for something coming up (obviously remembered at 1am), I can just shop from my phone.

Do you have any other tips to share?  I would love to hear them!
