Post specifically asking for girls clothes on freecycle. You are
perfectly allowed to ask for items, and it might get you in touch
with someone who has clothes to give you without having to deal with
being “first in line”.
Ask friends and family if they know of anyone who might have hand me
downs in girls items, without being subtle. Just point out
say, “Hey, I was wondering.. do you know anyone who has a girl who
might have some hand me down’s we could use for our daughter?”
We went through that with our son. He’s the first boy in his
generation to be born on either side of the family. Still is the
only boy, actually, so hand me downs were non-exsistant. Back then,
there was no Freecycle, either (He’s almost 8 now). My husband’s
aunt had a co-worker with a little boy about a year older, though,
and after I asked around, i ended up with 3 large garbage bags of
clothes for him. I took out what I could use (some was too small
already, some was horribly stained, etc), and passed on anything I
Your friend’s sister might have an in-law, for instance, with little
girls. Or your co-workers brother might have little girls. Hit
places like Good Will & Salvation army. It’s a lot cheaper than
going to consignment shops, because there’s no middle man. You
aren’t paying both the owner of the shop and the owner of the
clothes. You might not find as much really nice stuff, but the way
kids grow, finding cheap clothes is always a bonus.
