It can be difficult to follow a reasonably small budget for children’s clothing. As they grow out of clothing so quick, often times you will have to replace their entire wardrobe every year, particularly when they are very young. This can be made easier by having a couple of children of the same sex and close to the same age, as you can always give the youngest the older one’s hand-me-downs (although this practice isn’t always appreciated by them), but still, you can end up spending considerably more money on their clothing than your own.
There are a number of ways in which clothing your children can be made more easy. Including the previous example, you can also go thrift stores, buy non-branded clothing, resize clothes once they no longer fit, and even go to second-hand clothing stores.
Resizing clothing has one big advantage over the other methods, as it helps to make purchasing high quality, fashionable clothes more affordable by extending the lifespan of those clothes. While you can pay for professional seamstresses to provide this service, if you have the skills to do this yourself then the affordability of this method goes up even more.
