Lately, my daughter has been begging me to take her clothes shopping. She tells me that she has very few clothes that fit her anymore. Let me make it clear that this girl has TONS of clothes!! Part of the problem is that most of them are either in her hamper, or most likely in her floor, piled in her closet or under her bed! It is true that, she probably does need some more garments that fit her properly. It seems that I'm constantly sending her back to her room to "change to something more appropriate". My oldest son, seems to always be wearing the same pair of jeans for the same reason.

So how does a mom keep growing kids in clothes without breaking the bank?? THRIFT STORES!!! We love our local thrift stores. Although I have to admit that I HATE going shopping. I know, I'm a woman! I'm supposed to love shopping. That's an explanation for another post!

There are also other ways to keep your kids in properly fitting duds. You could set up a clothing swap with your homeschool support group. This is also a great way to pass on the items that no longer fit your kids.

When my kids were younger I used to do a lot of sewing for them. They loved having custom couture made by mom. I had several patterns that I was able to use for all three kids. Now that they are older, they are no where near the same sizes. I don't seem to have as much time for sewing anyway. Therefore, grandma does more of the sewing for them now.

How do you keep your fashionista in vogue??
