Kids winter fashion without breaking the budget
If they’re outgrowing clothes faster than the seasons change, it can be disheartening—and feel wasteful—to spend a lot of cash on a trendy winter wardrobe. But waiting around to save the most cash during an end-of-season clearance might not work in your favor if your kids end up skipping a size. Instead, spend your budget on layering items that can take you into shoulder season and trendy accessories.
For outwear, make sure you’re getting quality with your cost by shopping at a sportswear specialist such as REI, especially if you’re in frigid climates. For slightly lower price points for the smallest of your bunch, Carter’s offers necessities like snowsuits and boots.
Target and JCPenney can provide staples like undershirts and bottom layers at low prices. Don’t forget to check for cash back offers and coupons before you purchase. Prices tend to be the same as in-store offerings, so you can feel comfortable ordering from your laptop.
Finish the look with accessories such as hats, gloves and scarves from somewhere like Old Navy. Low prices mean you can buy multiple items and won’t shed a tear if a mitten goes missing in the snow.
