    Op shops and end of season sales as the kids get older and op shops don't have as much.

    My son (2) is almost exclusively dressed in op shop clothing, with a few other thrown in where I can't get enough at the op shop. My older two (girls-7 and 9) have a fair bit of op shop stuff, plus hand-me-downs and a few things I get at end of season sales.

    I get comments all the time about how nicely dressed they are, which I think is because their clothing is a bit more unique as its from all over the place. People are always shocked when I show them how much is from op shops!

    I buy bigger sizes if I find something really good too and just put it away til it fits.

    My hubby is always finding pumpkin patch and other brands I have never heard of at op shops - guess he has a knack for finding the girls trendy clothes ;-)

    Lol! That's so cute! My husband loves to shop as well. We'll have to compare notes on which op shops
    are good!

    I don't have the patience for op shops. I don't even have the patience for specials racks
    I wish i did.... If it's not right there in front of me neatly organized I just don't look, guess it means I miss out on a lot of bargains though!

    Myer end of season sales are fantastic. But get crazy cheap two weeks in. I have got ds some awesome stuff. A few pairs of jack and milly jeans for under $10. Sprout stuff for even cheaper.

    We also get some stuff from op shops, but only if I am by myself and can take my time!

    I buy plain basic t-shirts and stuff that don't last from k-mart and big W. They are always under $5, I always dress ds in a plain black t-shirt, with jeans that are usually his skinny jeans and his high top cons.

    Not really budget friendly but we get stacks of stuff from rockyourbaby...com. haha. Sucks me in every time!
