As a new parent we seem to think that we will be purchasing

new clothing for our child. We think that buying used items for our children means that our parenting is not up to par. In all actuality, purchasing discount kids clothing is a smart thing to keep in mind once they are born.

Saving money is extremely important to every family. By purchasing discount kids clothing you will save money that could be used on other items such as; diapers, formula (which is expensive), gas, bills, etc.

Buying discount kids clothing is not just for the benefit of saving money, but new parents do not understand how fast children really grow. The growing rate for a child is quick and just as fast as you bought that twenty dollar shirt, it no longer fits and you are through with it.

If you are not sure where to purchase discount kids clothing, keep reading this article. It will give you great ideas on how to find the perfect sales. Make sure that you utilize the list; it will make your life a lot easier.

Firstly, you can visit your local Good Will store. Do not be ashamed to go here, most of our society has turned it into a hobby to save money. This has been done due to our economic down falls. It is exciting to walk into the store and find exactly what you are looking for, but for ten dollars less than the regular retail shop.

Secondly, there are second hand baby / child stores everywhere. They operate by parents bringing in their child's clothing and equipment that they grew out of. They give it to the store in exchange for store credit. The store then turns around and sells it cheaply to those who need the clothing and equipment. These stores are valuable, especially if you have more than one child.

These stores have caught up with the digital age and you can be put on a mailing list. This is a great way to stay in touch with the store. Occasionally, you can email the store to ask if they have an item available. However, the main reason to take advantage of the mailing list is to know when there are sales on items. They will notify you of discount kids clothing through your email and you will save even more time and money.

Thirdly, major retail stores do have many sales. I know that it is hard to keep up with what is on sale. The rule of thumb is to purchase items for the following year. For example; if you want nice, new clothing for your child for the following year by not spending too much money, wait till winter to buy the discounted summer clothing. This can be tricky though. You will need to anticipate their growth. Always purchase one to two sizes too big. That way by time they get there it will fit. Another way you can make it easier with the major retails is to get on their mailing list as well.

      Great advice! I agree that it's such a great way to save money, especially since they grow out of stuff so fast! I have also had great luck at garage sales.
