I am a big fan of hand-me-down clothes for kids. The biggest reason is that they outgrow their clothes so fast that it is just a waste of money to buy clothes for them. Don’t get me wrong. C does get new clothes especially the special occasion clothes. However for everyday clothes especially play clothes and at-home clothes, I try to source for hand-me-down clothes if I can. Of course, not all the clothes we received are usable by her. Sometimes they are not the right size or sometimes they are just not practical for her just like the horse riding apparel we got last year. So we will usually pass on the clothes to others who need it.
