  5. Put names on everything
  6. Clip coupons from Sunday circulars
  7. Shop discount stores first
  8. Don't forget about grocery store sales
  9. Follow stores' social media accounts for sale alerts
  10. Buy in bulk and split among multiple families
  1. Vintage is big, try thrift shops
  2. If not vintage, go discount, such as TJ Maxx, Marshall's, Nordstrom Rack
  3. If not discount, try, and
  4. Make alterations to old clothes: Hem pants, dye shirts, sew on cool patches
  5. Organize or find a clothing swap with other moms in your area
