Thrifty Thursday - Kids' Clothing

How does my son do this to every pair of his jeans? Honestly? It is amazing, but each pair starts to burst on the left side (whatever it is must be dominant on that side - in the beginning). Then, it spreads.

Since I am a Thrifty Mom, I make him wait it out. Once both knees are out of control, I store them away until warmer weather. Now that summer is here, we have cut the legs off and made him some great denim shorts! Not a new idea, but one that definitely works for mothers of little boys. We even go so far as to recycle the denim that we cut off for our craft projects.

What thrifty idea can you share today for Thrifty Thursday? Add them below! Details on how to participate can be found here.

  1. People are ALWAYS giving away free kids' clothes on and also selling them at garage sales and thrift stores. Often you can find like-new kids' clothes for free or cheap because kids grow out of them so fast. It's not even hard to find trendy, stylish kids' clothes if yours are little fashionistas. :)
