Kids clothes for school
Back to school time! It seems like the cost of kids clothes for school rise every year--we just spent $40 more on shoes last month than we thought we'd need to, and that was for preschool! Not to mention having another baby; it seems like hand-me-down kids clothes only go so far. So now there's more than just this feeling I get that kids clothes costs are rising. Industry group studies, and more and more reports in the U.S. and Canada this back to school season confirm it.
Joanne Chianello has an interesting piece on back to school kids clothes buying tips. I like Joanne's sensible approach to getting kids clothes for school.
So if 33 percent of people intend to spend more, that should be good for Noodletogs, right? Well, sure come on in! But really I'd prefer to touch those 48 percent of people who intend to spend about the same on kids clothes for school.
Those are the people just like us who are trying to get their kids dressed for school while stretching their dollars as far as possible. We keep promising we'll spend less on kids clothes and we keep missing the mark during the back to school season.
So if we're going to catch the new year fever and buy more kids clothes for school, we're going to want to spend less. Obviously I think Noodletogs is a good choice for young kids.
Joanne's article had some good tips like cleaning out the closet, making good lists, setting a budget, and letting the kids have a role in choosing their clothes for school.
When you're done with that, come on back to Noodletogs.com and look at our kids clothes.
