Children are expensive. Not that any of us would change having our kids. I however like to find ways to save money while buying my sons clothing. To save money doesn't mean having to do without.

Try these tips out and start saving money today!! Even if financially you don't have to look for deals. You still should. There is so much more you can do with the extra money you will save from buying your toddler clothes and shoes.
Consignment shops, Goodwills and Garage Sales should become your best friends.
I know what some of you are thinking......... "I will not shop at second hand stores for my kid's clothes." Trust me, I used to think this way, but not anymore. There are people who'd rather throw away clothes or give them away instead of washing them or trying to remove the stains. I have bought $30.00 Timberland sandals for $2.00. at a Goodwill. Now granted they were dirty. But, with Shout and throwing them in the washing machine, they looked brand new. I find deals like this every week. Consignment shops are good. Garage sales are even better. All of these places have cheap toddler clothes. Now you will have to take the time and love to remove the dirt and stains from your items. Trust me, it's all worth it in the end.
** Special Sites you should visit: **
narts.org. This is a great site for locating thrift stores in your area!
Also check out shopgoodwill.com. It has online auctions and is amazing! You are able to shop at Goodwill without leaving home. WOW!
Buying on EBAY. Turn into an Ebay junkie.... It's okay.
WOW! Another place where you can find excellent deals on cheap toddler clothes. The extra plus about Ebay is that you don't even have to leave your home. You can buy on line and it will be shipped right to your house. I love Ebay.
I have a great Ebay Buying and Selling Guide that I wrote. So check it out today and SAVE money while shopping!
Clearance Racks at any department store.
Here is a nice trick. You can buy cheap toddler clothes ahead for the next season. Meaning, you can buy bigger sizes that will fit your child the next year. For example, when summer is starting to end they mark down all of the summer clothes. Buy like one or two sizes bigger and come Spring or next Summer the clothes will fit.
Go to Discounted Department Stores.
Gabriel Brothers and TJ Maxx are just two examples of my favorite stores. You can really find some excellent deals on cheap toddler clothes in these stores. You can find name brand clothes for less. I love them.
Be sure to check out next month when I share my secrets on how to turn your toddler's used clothing into a profit...:)

Fast Chicken Soup
Bring broth to a boil with the 1/2 cup of chicken then add the pasta. Cook on medium heat until the pasta is done to your toddler's preference. YUMMY!! You can throw in a handful of frozen peas and/or carrots to provide some extra nutrition.
