Rummage Sale

So, like I said yesterday, I went with some friends to a rummage sale last weekend. Evee really needed some clothes for this coming season. I wasn't sure what I'd find, but ended up getting some great things. So, for those of you who may be hesitant about used clothes (and for those who get really excited about cheap clothes :)) , check out what I got for about $3!

Just to be clear :), I got 3 pair of pants, plus three pairs of pants that I will most likely use for pajama pants, some cute overalls, 3 long sleeve shirts, and a fall/start of winter jacket (there's a close up of the jacket below too). There is another pajama garment on the left, but a friend actually sent that this week from a local Goodwill store. Anyway, obviously thrilled about it!

How do you go about getting clothes for your kids? New from stores, hand-me-downs, thrift stores, sales rack, garage sales???


  1. Hand-me-downs and thrift stores. I've pretty much decided to only buy clothes for my really young ones if they're going to go naked (which has yet to happen). Hand-me-downs are getting fewer as E is getting bigger. Boys seem to be very rough on clothes after age 4-5. We will see how the efforts to save money in the clothing dept. look in the teen years. Anyone with teens have any ideas?

  2. Cute stuff Jamie! I get my girls stuff mostly from consignment stores and we have a friend that gives us hand-me-downs which have been great! I love getting a great deal too!

  3. I love LOVE love the local clothing sales around here. Every spring and fall I work at them to get the benefit of being allowed to shop BEFORE the general public. My kids are generally wearing outfits either from clothing sales or hand me downs from friends. There really isn't any reason to NOT shop for used clothes!

    It IS getting harder as my son (9) gets older. But I figure that I've saved so much money so far, I can afford to buy him new clothes now...

  4. What a great bunch of stuff. I love it when this happens!
