Make More, Spend Less: Shop Secondhand

Confession: I’m obsessed with children’s clothing. If I thought I had a shopping problem buying clothes for myself, I was totally wrong. As soon as I found out I was pregnant with the twins, it took every ounce of self control for me not to go nuts online.

I managed to contain myself until I found out the twins’ gender: a boy and a girl. GAME ON! I’m pretty sure I drove directly to the local baby boutique after the anatomy scan to make my first clothing purchase. I picked out the CUTEST Kickee Pants sets to bring the twins home from the hospital in. I’ll be the first to admit it was an extravagant purchase for a couple of infants, but I let it by my “special occasion thing.”

Now that I know that 1) kids get really dirty, 2) kids grow really fast, and 3) kids clothes are expensive, I’ve found a new way to satisfy my addiction: shop second hand.

Shopping secondhand isn’t just cheaper; it’s way more environmentally friendly. I’ve become a second-hand shopping PRO. Not only am I going to share all the best tips for shopping secondhand, but I’ll even throw in a few tips for reselling your kids’ clothes as well.
