    For people like me on a VERY limited budget finding clothes for my ever-

    growing 5 year old boy can be a challenge. My suggestion is to ask at

    your local Goodwill store when their markdown day is. Every week the

    Goodwill chain of thrift stores has a day that a certain color tag of

    clothing, linens, or coats is only $0.50! It is a different day at

    each store and they don't advertise what day it is unless you just

    happen to be there on that day and see the sign. I have gotten even

    things that are brand new designer stuff with tags on for only $0.50!

    It is worth checking out.

    well, some goodwill's anyways, the few we have around here are

    expensive; but check out freecycle on yahoo groups!!!

    It fun, free, and enviromentaly friendly. Under business'>then free

    stuff> then type in your city+freecycle...most places have freecycle

    around..so you and other freecyclers in your area give away everything

    from clothes to cars!! Really...so check that out and see if that helps,

    I agree that normally the goodwill's are expensive but you have to be willing to ask. Some goodwill's even have a customer appreciation card that gives you different percentages off on different days...but again you have to ASK for it. Freecycle is great unless like me you live in a rural area. Most of the time the cost of gas to go get whatever is free is more than the item(s) worth.

    We have a Goodwill, Salvation Army, and a store called New to You...

    between the three of those, and freecycle and craigslist, I can always

    find something that will work for my 4 children. Clearance shopping at

    Walmart is also usually very friendly to the budget.

    I also have a wonderful friend who has 2 children who are a couple

    sizes bigger then my two preschoolers, her hand me downs have saved me

    hundreds of dollars so far.
