Think ahead

Prepare yourself a little earlier by buying clothes off season. Usually, when you’re buying clothes at the end of a season, the prices are significantly lower, and you can buy a bunch of clothes almost for nothing. The trick is to purchase items that are one size larger. There are some things you must know for certain that your child will need next year, for example a winter jacket, long pants, sweaters, shorts, etc. There are some things that are “fashionable” forever, and some that are quickly outdated, so don’t buy some current fashion hits, but opt for some classics, such as, t-shirts, jeans and coats.

Exchange it

Take care of clothes

The last advice we can give you is to take care of the clothes you already got.
