6 Practical Guide When Buying Toddler’s Clothing
All children’s clothes are designed very cutely and adorable and if you are shopping for your own kid’s clothes, you would be wanting to buy everything that you can see. But this can really cost a lot of money if you will not think twice and wise. Kid’s clothes can be outgrown very fast so might as well be practical in doing this exciting shopping tips.
Here are some guidelines that can help you save, but enjoys shopping for your kids:
Know your kid’s size and buy something larger than that
Since toddlers tend to grow really fast, it is really not advisable to buy clothes that fit exactly on them. Give some allowance, maybe one to two size larger, to make sure that your kid will be using those clothes for a long time.
Take advantage of sales
Clothing shops always have that sale season so always watch out for that and don’t think twice about buying. Most of the times, clothes that are on sale are not applicable for the current season so take advantage of those. Buying kid’s clothes ahead of time are such a good deal.
Don’t focus on the brand name
There are a lot of inexpensive clothes on department stores that offers a very good quality that is sometimes similar to those with big brand names. If it gives you pride that your child is wearing branded clothes why not try mixing branded ones to inexpensive ones? This will still give you that designer look you’ve been eyeing on for long.
Don’t spend too much on one-time use clothes
Needing a formal dress for that family gathering? Buy cheap ones with a good quality. Buying expensive clothes that will be worn only once is such a waste. Going back to the previously mentioned guideline, there are a lot of inexpensive clothes that can still give you that quality you want for your kids.
Don’t give away outgrown clothes yet
If you and your partner are still planning to have another baby, then keep those little clothes if they are still in a good condition. Nothing can be more practical than using something over and over again.
Give away or sell outgrown clothes
Only if you are already sure that you will never be having a baby anymore, then start giving them away to family or friends, or to those who can’t afford to buy lots of clothes, remember that helping others to save money can be really fulfilling. But if you don’t know anyone whom you can give outgrown clothes to, or not the type of person who would like give away clothes to the needy, or if you just really needs some extra money, try selling those clothes. There are a lot of thrift / second-hand shops in any place, so try selling the clothes on them. You can also make use of your social media accounts and inform friends and family that you are selling them at an affordable price.
Being practical on shopping for clothes would not make you feel less as a successful parent, so go ahead and enjoy!
