My son recently switched up sizes on me, from 2t to 3t; so we went thrift hunting this weekend- and boy did we make out like bandits! We got a fall/winter wardrobe of more then 100 pieces, all in GREAT wearable condition, some even still had tags, many of these are name brand clothes, although there are some Walmart and Target brands too- but all for $50 total by shopping thrift!
Here's the shopping and cost breakdown: We went to a Children's Orchard stuff a bag for $7 sale, where I averaged 13 items a bag in 4 bags (just under 54¢ an item for 52 items) plus 4 sleep outfits for $1 each outfit (50¢ an item for 8 items) then we went to 2 different Salvation Army's half off kids clothes school sale and bought 27 items for $8.50 total (~31.5¢ an item for 27 items). Then we stopped at a few yard sales on the way to the park, then on the way home for ~35¢ an item for another couple dozen items. Total we spent just around $50 (sans a few cents) for the day.
