38. Pre-Owned Clothing
One of the things that has saved us a lot of money over the years is the acquisition of Pre-Owned clothing. Children's clothes are easy to find and easy to clean, so they are the most logical place to start. However, we have also discovered that finding specific pieces, such as a dress jacket can save a fortune. There have even been a few pieces that I have redesigned into a new, updated dress. Sometimes the items being sold are in really great condition and just need cleaned and pressed. There are ways to alter the collar, or the fit, easily enough if you can use a sewing machine. If not, you should learn some simple techniques.
