Every year, parents shell out more money for their children’s clothes, and while shopping is a necessity, there’s no need for reckless spending. A frugal shopper knows that there are plenty of ways around the expensive price tags without skimping on the essentials. If you’re looking to get your kid a whole new wardrobe for cheap or even for free, we’ve got a few tips to help you out. 

1) Set up a clothing swap in your community 

If you and your friends or parents around your neighborhood have similarly aged children, then you’re in luck. Much like how you would organize a clothing swap with your friends, this event will get your child almost a whole new wardrobe without having to spend a penny. To make sure every kid goes home happy with a sufficient amount of clothing, each parent should bring around 10 to 15 items. 

2) Invest in the quality, not quantity 

Parents on a tight budget are more likely to buy clothes made from a blend of cotton and polyester, a fabric that is widely accessible, dries quickly, doesn’t shrink or wrinkle, and most importantly, typically more affordable than garments made from 100% natural fiber. But items like sweatshirts made from the finest cotton allow the clothes to be hard wearing and practical, making your child’s wardrobe last throughout the seasons and the years when they’re ready to be handed down to your next kid. Shopping for durability can save you a ton of money in the future. 

3) Don’t be afraid to shop at your local thrift store 

The idea of hand-me-downs and second-hand items is something that lots of people tend to steer clear of, but compare a new purchase from a regular retailer to a gently used shirt from a consignment, most people probably can’t even tell the difference. The great thing about thrift stores is that they can even offer additional discounts or a rewards card for frequent shoppers. 

4) Sell your clothes through Enkore Kids

 Need the funds to shop? Try selling your items through us! Garage sales may be a nice way to meet your neighbors, but between work, errands, recitals and whatnot, no one really has the time to put those together anymore. In return for bringing your items to us, you’ll either receive cash or store credit. Read our Sell section to learn about the items we are currently accepting

5) Check out Enkore Kids’ end of season basket sale 

The end of the fall/winter season is nearing, which means it’s time for our end of season basket sale! We’ll fit everything we can into one basket, priced at $25, which should set you up nicely for next fall and winter. Hurry Basket Sale ends 2/6.
