The Price of Beauty

Wow... how expensive is it to dress kids???? As we enter the winter season and say goodbye to summer I find myself once again struggling to dress the kids. The other day, my Mom and I went through the girls winter clothes from last year to ascertain what doesn't fit and needs to find a new home, what still fits, and what can be let out to fit. Then the shopping to fill in the gaps began. I try to shop smart, but even at that... four $15 dollar items is $60 bucks and that doesn't make a dent in a wardrobe. The girls need brown shoes, black shoes, and tennis shoes. The boys need dress shoes and play shoes... We need 4 heavy coats and 4 jackets... the list goes on.... But, I regularly get compliments on the kids clothes which makes me feel good.

Funny, I can walk out the door in sweats, t-shirt, hair clip, and no make-up... but heaven forbid the kids walk out without matching bows, socks, and shoes.

Anyways, I want to thank Walmart, Target, Kolh's, and Ross for their great sales and contributions to our wardrobes....

  1. When I'm shopping for the girls' clothes, my mind sometimes wanders over to what it would be like to have only one child. Maybe then a $30 Halloween costume wouldn't make me blink...but multiply that a time or two, and it adds up so quickly!

    Even though it's expensive and it can be tedious, I still have such fun shopping for the girls. :)
