Clothes Shopping Is Easy -- and Cheap!

Leggings, tights, dresses, skirts, blouses, bows, headbands, ballet flats, sandals, sneakers, ruffle-butt diaper covers -- the list of possible adorable items you can dress your little girl in is endless and can get expensive. Boys? Well, there are pants (cargos, jeans and cords), sneakers and T-shirts (long sleeves or short sleeves depending on the season). There are no outfits. Everything, essentially, goes together. Maybe there's a button-down shirt just in case, but really, that's it. Sure, it can be disappointing at first not to choose among the racks and racks of crazy cute girl dresses, but the savings, convenience, extra time in the morning and total lack of clothing drama should not be understated.
