    Default Daycare Clothes

    DD will start daycare soon at 9.5mths of age, just 2 days a week.
    I want to have separate home and daycare clothes as for home i tend to buy more expensive clothes.
    What does everyone else do? do you just buy daycare clothes form kmart etc and how is their quality etc? How many pants/tops/jackets etcf would you have for your child?

    Yep Kmart is the way to go Doesn't matter if a $3 or $4 shirt gets paint stains.
    I used to pack 2 spare outfits each so would have 3 for the day and enough to spread across the week.
    I spent maybe $80? on the twins for outfits to wear two days a week.

    My DD is 3 and honestly most of her clothes home or daycare are target. I just find it easier at this age as she is growing out of everything so quick that I can't justify the money on anything more expensive, we're lucky to get one season out of clothes. DS is now in school and most of his clothes are more expensive as he only wears them on the weekend (gotta love school uniforms).

    cool, i was thinking 3 sets of clothes per day. I'm looking at target online and there's some cute top/pants sets for around $10-$12/set. Is kmart any cheaper?
    Just want to take advantage of the stocktake sales

    Yep kmarts the cheapest. I send my DS in $4 trackie pants or stuff I've been given as hand me downs. I'm sure they think he's a scruff but I don't care. My DD had too many nice clothes ruined ( my fault, I was a daycare virgin😃).

    Kmart would be cheaper, but since target is having a great sale at the moment I would buy from there as the quality is a lot better
    I have been taking advantage of there latest sales

    Or check out gumtree for people selling bulk lots (e.g. 10 x size 3 girls t-shirts for $30 etc). If you keep an eye out in your area on gumtree you can just do pickups and not have to worry about postage.
    My sis sells all her kids clothes on there and most stuff gets bought within a day or so of posting it.

    I buy Target basics for daycare. They're quite good quality for the price and you can get stuff really cheap during sales.
