Thank you to everyone who shared ideas for how to buy kids' clothes on a budget. The contest is now closed. But don't go away! Feel free to share your tip with our community, or go check out the other great ideas in the comments.
Whenever we ask you to post tips for taking care of the house, kids or family, we have a ball here at the Cozi office reading what you have to say. We're amazed at your good ideas and how many times we see a tip we never thought of ourselves!
This time we're going to talk about kids' clothes and how you keep the closet stocked on a budget.
We know it's a never-ending job to keep enough jeans without holes, shirts without stains, trendy items for kids who like that sort of thing, and shoes to cover everyday wear plus soccer practice and church. Not to mention socks, underwear, coats and accessories.
And then there's the last minute dilemma of needing a dress-up outfit for a special event when your kids have grown three inches since you attended the last one. Or having to send a two-week supply of clothes for summer camp.
How do you do all that and still stay on budget?
Tell us and as a reward for sharing your ideas, you could win a ONE HUNDRED DOLLAR gift cards to Old Navy, compliments of Cozi and Old Navy. Here how to enter:

Your tip can be about the best stores to find deals, the best time to stock up, what to buy at the second-hand stores, the best bargain you’ve ever found, how to set expectations with the kids about how much they actually need. Anything you do that works to keep the kids in clothes without breaking the bank.
