The best time to buy children's clothes? Shop for bargains in late September for school clothes after the back-to-school sale rush is over.
Wait until store shelves make room for winter gear to buy sneakers in November. And check again in April for sales on sneaker styles that haven't moved during the winter months.
Of course, November is also time to take advantage of Black Friday sales when seemingly everything goes on sale! Meanwhile, from December 26 through January, look for post-holiday sales on kids' fancy dresses, sweaters and outfits. And, watch for winter clothing going on sale in February as retailers make way for spring.
At any time of year, keep an eye out for children's clothing clearances and circulars from popular retailers for children's clothes - such as Target, JCPenney, Kohl's and Walmart. Online, check out reputable discount sites such as Amazon and Overstock.com.
The easiest way to comparison shop is, of course, online and don't forget to print out sale coupons offered by most major retailers that may add up to tons of discounts at the cash register. Retailers honor their store coupons online. Just enter the code as you check out and enjoy the extra discounts without stepping a foot outside the house.
Also don't overlook thrift stores in your neighborhood that enjoy a booming business in children's clothing. With luck, you may find brand new children's clothing in their original packaging left by moms whose kids have already outgrown them!
