There’s nothing in the world like being a parent and though we all hope our children turn out better than we did, is it a little wrong to cross our fingers they won’t cost too much money (insert sarcasm)? Sure there will be costly expenses that range from medical to dental routines, but what about other expenditures like clothing?

Anyone who has a child can testify to the fact that a. children constantly grow and b. children require some cash to keep up with their constant spurts. If you find yourself looking for ways to cut costs, here are some money saving tips for children’s clothing.

Head to clearance racks first

Stores do a great job of showcasing their latest and greatest merchandise in the front of the store. Hoping you’ll pay full retail price, if you aren’t too careful you could miss out on nice items that have been marked down on clearance. Before committing to a particular set of clothes, check out the clearance section first for any items that can put some money back in your pocket.
