It’s cold right now, but with spring just around the corner, now is a good time to search out those clothing deals to keep the kiddo’s in style.
This article from Living on the Cheap gives practical and good sense ways to help stretch your clothing dollars, in these times of financial strife for some of you.
You don’t have to spend a bundle of cash, if you know where to look for bargains to clothe your children.
You can find some kids’ clothes in excellent condition at thrift stores like Goodwill, Salvation Army and other thrift stores. Call your local store and ask if they have a special discount day that includes children’s clothing. You could save up to 50% per item, bringing your cost down even more. Look for “one-time wear” items, like Halloween costumes or party dresses. Check out high-end consignment shops like Plato’s Closet for trendy threads that your older child will enjoy.
Garage and yard sales pop up in the coming warm weather months. Parents clean out the closets and get ready for summer, knowing the kids won’t fit into those sweaters and jeans by the time school is in session. This is a great time to find gently worn children’s clothing and outerwear that will fit perfectly in the fall months.
Also look at consignment stores. Some specialize in children’s clothing. You can find quality clothes (some with the tags still on them) for a fraction of what they cost at Macy’s or Sears. Yes, sizes might be limited but you could get lucky and find just the right dress for Christmas or Easter. Worn once or twice, you can take it back to the consignment store later and make part of your money back. You also can take your barely worn kids’ clothes to consignment shops to sell, to help defray the cost of dressing your youngsters.

Myrtle Beach Hotel Deal’s From Booking.com
Rent an RV for spring or summer travel, as extra housing for family and guests, or as a spare office for working from home. And an RV adds a second kitchen - or more like a kitchenette - for holiday meals. In some parts of the country, spring time is the perfect time to go camping. Campgrounds in Myrtle Beach are less crowded, kids are back in school, and the temperatures are perfect for campfires.
You may even want to consider an RV rental the next time you need temporary lodgings for family coming into town or for short-term business stays. If you already own an RV, you could turn it into a second income.
