Today it is easy to find inexpensive mass produced kids clothes like great kids T shirts in all kinds of retail stores, supermarkets and online stores but parents today can feel under considerable pressure to dress their children in brand name or designer gear that their friends and peers wear. Kids want to look great and have the coolest, fashionable clothes of the day that give them confidence in their look.
Sadly many parents simply cannot afford to dress their kids in expensive brand name or designer clothes especially as growing kids need new clothes so often the bill for buying your kids clothes can quickly grow.
With that in minds here are our tips on dressing your kids in cool clothes on a budget:
Buy new and re-sell
If you have to buy expensive clothes for your kids then think about selling the clothes once your kids are done with them. You should be able to get some of your money back through selling good quality used clothing either at yard sales or on websites such as eBay or Mums Net.
Buy used clothes
Kids grow fast so often their clothes are still in good condition but just don’t fit them. Many parents sell their used clothing so as well as selling your used clothing you can buy other people’s used kids clothing at a fraction of the new price and if it is still in good condition then sell it on afterwards too!
Choose your designer
Designer clothes don’t have to come from big name expensive brands. Look for smaller local designer outlets that don’t have the big overheads and can supply cool, unique garments at much lower prices.
If you have friends with kids then you could trade your old clothes with them. Organise your own clothes swaps with local parents or school and play groups to get your child a new wardrobe for next to nothing.
Create your own
There are now many services that let you design and print your own one-off garments. If you’re artistic you can create your own designs or you can use a ready made design and pay a small commission to have it printed on the garment of your choice. You get a truly unique garment which will cost less that the designer garment. Alternatively you could buy cheap plain clothes and customise them with fabric dies, transfers or accessories.
