“Didn’t I just buy that? How is it possible that you need new clothes this soon?”
I don’t know if it is just me, but this is something I ask myself all of the time. It feels like every time I get new clothes for my kids the next thing I know they are too small, stained, or already worn out.
Kids grow fast and clothing can get a lot of wear and tear. Sometimes it seems hard to replace clothes as fast as children outgrow them and destroy them with stains and holes. As moms, we want to make sure our kids dress nice, are presentable, and are happy. Children can also be conscious of what they are wearing because they want to put their best foot forward, and sometimes even want to keep up with the latest trend.
The question is how do we keep up with the demand and need for new clothing without going broke? This podcast episode will discuss:
- 7 ways to save money on children’s clothes
- How to rethink your clothing budget and how this also will teach your children financial literacy
- The number 1 thing you must consider when purchasing new clothes for your children
