    Default Shoes for the kids

    My sons need shoes. The 8 year old needs sandals and the 4 year old

    needs sandals and gym shoes. I have ravaged Target and the Salvation

    Army, but now I am getting desperate. What is a good way to get some

    decent shoes for the kids without spending an arm and a leg, or even

    one leg? Thanks

    Payless Shoe Source is where I go. Or Freecycle or look for friends who

    have kids just a tad bit older (hand me downs).



    Does your church offer a clothing swap?

    Thrift store and eBay...I go to a regular retail store, try on shoes to be sure of size and then look on eBay for the same shoe. Be sure to setyour eBayso that the less expensiveshoes show up first in the listing...otherwise, you'll fall in love with something more expensive..

    HI Kristin, I would say if your going to go to a thrift store make it out there early. I would also like to recommend AmVets on Cedar and Shields, they have a great selection on shoes. Target stores offer great clearance at this time. Keep in mind that Clovis Target is always the first to mark things down. I got a pair of converse shoes for my 14 year old son for 7.48, I was blesses that day. I also look to yard sales that advertise kids stuff. I hope this helped you out a little. Danielle

    We don't have a clothing swap, but a lot of children's clothing

    sales. Maybe I should start a swap at the school. It seems that

    boys shoes are run into the ground and thrown away because i can

    never find used boys shoes, always girls.

    Maybe now is the time to use that Godwill coupon for 20% off and make

    the trip. It is a little far, but would be worth it if we can find

    some back to school stuff.

    I get my son's shoes from K Mart. You buy one pair and get the second pair

    1/2 off. I buy sandles that fit now. The second pair I get 1/2 size larger

    for winter.I don't pay a lot for shoes because he out grows them quickly and

    always has more than one pair that he likes. He was wearing clogs and loved

    them but is over them now.
