How to save money when buying your children’s clothes
4. Second hand
Don’t forget about buying second hand. Charity shops and second hand dealers often have great quality children’s clothing at a fraction of the new price. Check your purchases carefully to ensure that they are in good condition, and you should be able to pick up a bargain or two. Our local charity shop has a cot they fill with clothes for 20p an item and on a good day I can pick out 5 of 6 good items!
Once your children outgrow their clothes, why not donate them to your local Oxfam shop? If you have a Nectar card, you can even collect points when the items you donate are sold. To take advantage of this, simply link your Nectar account and Oxfam Tag Your Bag account online, and you will able to collect points on donations, to spend on any Nectar reward.
