With every season there comes the exhausting job of sifting through last years clothes and finding out how much I need to still buy for my kids! I am sure other mothers out there can relate to this task. It seems that every year I have to buy all new clothes for my oldest, and my youngest has less and less to wear because his older brothers wore everything out. The only safe bet in my house is my middle child, he always get hand-me-downs. Thankfully, he still thinks this is cool and doesn't feel like he is getting cheated!
As I sat down last night to write my list of what I need to buy, I realized that my paltry budget of $150 was not going to cut it, try $250! Add to this the sudden cold snap and I am feeling the pressure to go shopping! Normally I love shopping, but with kids clothes I get so consumed with finding the best deal, that I just freeze and come home with nothing. I don't have that luxury this time, I even told my husband that I need this Saturday to go to the mall BY MYSELF, to get the boys something to wear! My poor oldest son only has one pair of jeans that are huge (they were a hand-me-down from a cousin) and shirts that are too small. I just hope that I picked the right weekend to find some sales!!
