Children grow out of their clothing before we can get it home and hang up it in the closet it appears. O.K., maybe that's an exaggeration, however, not by much! It's just as likely the item you bought today won't be worn next month as a result of fashion "issues." Using this into consideration, it just doesn't sound right to throw away so much of our hard earned dollars on clothing expenses.

It is also the reason that acquiring gently used and new items at budget saving resources is so satisfactory. Much of a child's wardrobe is still in great condition after they grow out of, or no longer want to wear, the things. Many times their unwanted garments are given away, donated to thrift stores, sold at garage sales, or offered at specialty shops.

When I decided to benefit from these resources to save money on clothing and "tame the closet monster", my girls were greatly disappointed. The new methods of clothing acquisition, freebies, thrift stores, garage sales, consignment shops, and clearance items weren't exactly their style. My son wasn't a challenge. Thank goodness, he isn't "fashion conscious".

I found that changing generate an income approached them about them made things easier. For instance we don't buy "used" clothing. We buy "previously owned, unwanted, or gently worn" clothing. And, I was sure to point out the countless benefits of shopping at these budget saving resources.

The thrift store where I shop is run by the National Children's Center , a nearby organization that provides educational services, early intervention preschool, and daycare to infants and small children with and without developmental delays. You will find that many of your local thrift stores are non-profit and support worthy charities.
