In our house, we hold off on getting pants and long sleeved shirts until the weather actually gets cooler.
The reason? Growth spurts.
When my kids were really young, I learned the hard way about buying things ahead of time. I traipsed out in the hot hot summer months, buying adorable clothes that – by the time cooler weather prevailed – were woefully short by the time I actually put them on the kids.
In my effort to avoid high water pants and too-short sleeves, I’ve learned to wait. I’ve also learned how to save a buck on clothes I know won’t fit the kids in 6 months. Fortunately, the KC Metro area is full of kids consignment sales.
Whether it’s clothes, toys, books, furniture or accessories for the kids, consignment shopping is a great way to save. Plus, there’s the added benefit of cleaning out the house (and making some money) by selling your gently used clothes, toys and furniture. Happy shopping!
