10 Ways To Save On Children’s Clothing

save money on children clothing

This post is just to share with you all how I save money on my children’s clothing. So let’s jump right on to it.

1- Kohls Charge Card: 

Half of the time I buy my kid’s clothes from Kohls. Especially their shoes, as shoes are very expensive. If you have a Kohls charge card, you can save up to 80% on clothing. You can use your coupon in addition to their regular sale items. E.g., if there is a pair of shoes for $60 you probably would end up paying only 15 to 17 bucks for that, and it’s a heck of a deal. Because kids grow so fast out their clothing and shoes, I am always looking for deals.

2- Zulily – the best website: 

This is the second website I found and it’s very inexpensive for kids clothing, and you can get nice branded clothing on this one.

3- Columbia Sportswear: I

f you have this store in your town, find out if your employer has coupons for the Employee Discount Stores. Prices are 60 to 70% lower than their retail stores. I purchased spring Jackets for my kids and the quality is great.

4- Amazon:

You know, You can find anything on Amazon. It’s a great place to shop for your kiddos clothes, shoes, and backpacks. With Amazon Prime, shipping is always free and there are tons of deals for the whole year.

5- Ali Express: 

This is another great site from China, but you have to order way before time as it takes forever for the shipping. But you can definitely find good clothing at reasonable prices. I have ordered lots of items from them, and all have them have somehow eventually made it to my mailbox without issue. I used to use that site a lot more but now my most favorite is Zulily.
6- Garage Sailing:

This is also a good way of finding nice clothing. Especially for your toddlers, it’s super good. Just look for nicer areas of town and if there are weekends for community garage sales, that’s even better. I love garage sailing. I never had set up one of my own as I always donate stuff, but it’s not a bad idea. It’s a lot of work though to set up one for yourself.

7- Thrift Stores:

Thrift stores such as Once Upon A Child, Goodwill, Salvation Army, St Vincent or any local thrift stores are great places to shop. You just need a bit more time to shop in those places. Did you guys know that Goodwill just started their GW Boutique and everything is branded?

8- Sewing: 

If you are a good seamstress then you can sew anything at home for kids. My mother makes mostly all of my kids’ clothing. She loves to sew. She is a retired sewing teacher but sewing is her hobby as well. Whenever I go to kids school, teachers always made sure to tell me that how pretty clothing my kids wear and that grandma does a great job. Indeed, she does!

9- Hand Me Down:

If your older child has grown up, use those for the youngest one or pass along in the family if you don’t need them. We always give our kids clothing to friends or family when my kids grow out of them. It feels nice to help others, anyway.

10- Keep it to a minimum: 

The best thing is to not buy too many. Keep it to 15 to 20 outfits. Although, I am trying hard to keep it to 20. But my mother always adds more to my kiddos collection.

Those green Jackets are from Columbia Sportswear, and The Sweater that little handsome man has on is one of the goodwill or garage sales finds.

I hope some of these points would help you. Now, I would love to hear what you guys have to share with me, and how do you save money specifically on kids clothing?

  1. Terrific tips! We do a lot of hand-me-down’s here in our family. It ends up that my youngest children are almost bursting at the seams for clothing! We have been going to Kohls more and more lately since moving closer to one. I have also ordered from Ali Express and if you are willing to wait, you can get some good deals. I have not tried ordering clothing in my size from them yet but with little kids, I think it is not as important to get the size exactly right. I can always hem it up if I need to or put a dart in the waistband.

  2. Kids grow in spurts, so to keep up with their growth rate you have to make plans to save money on their clothing. You have given very good ways parents can save money on their kids clothes

  3. Great post – Thanks. Mum’s need this! All my kids lived in hand-me-downs for almost the first 5 years of their lives, even though I passed on their clothes, more always came. It is amazing how much you save this way! Once I started buying their clothes, I really appreciated the thousands of dollars we’d saved. We shop online at outlet stores a lot, you can find amazing clothes from stores around the world that are in different seasons, selling what you need very cheaply. Lots of love L.

  4. These are such fantastic tips! I love to shop at a second hand store close to us and always find the BEST deals. New clothes with tags for just a fraction of the price! Love some of the other ways to save that you share, as well. xo!
