Frugal Family: Score Fall Clothing for Babies and Kids

Shop these sales to snag a warmer wardrobe for your child

Frugal Family: Score Fall Clothing for Babies and Kids

Autumn ushers in football, colorful leaves, pumpkins and crisp air. The change of season also brings along the need for us to purchase warmer clothing items for our children, which can get very expensive. Just like the year before, the sweaters in our kids’ drawers and jackets in their closets don’t fit anymore. Here are a few great opportunities to outfit youngsters for fall and winter on a tight budget.

1. The Canton Big Red Wagon Kids’ and Maternity Consignment Sale

Deal: Easily sell your child’s nice quality items he or she outgrew at this sale by visiting the website and following a couple of quick steps. Shop this sale for name brand new and like-new children’s clothing and accessories, toys, baby items and maternity apparel for a fraction of the retail price.

You will want to arrive early Friday to view the huge selection of merchandise. If you opt for Saturday, lots of items are marked half off. In the past, I have found Gymboree sweaters and dresses with the tags still on them for $5 to $10 and barely worn Stride Rite shoes for $8. The sale is being held at Elite Sports, 11035 Cleveland Ave. NW, Uniontown.

Good through: 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 30; and 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 1


Deal: Hurry in for the semiannual Baby Sale to snag discounted pants, shirts, sweaters, dresses, coats, Halloween costumes and more in sizes newborn through 5T. All items in stores and online are 30 percent off and start at just $5. The sale comes at a perfect time, as fall temperatures have arrived. It is time to trade in the shorts for jeans and sandals for sneakers.
