If you're like me and prefer to shop used, than you can save some considerable cash. You'll probably pay a max of $2.99 each pair, costing you $24 for 8 pairs. Much more reasonable.
However, a few months ago it dawned on me that I could save even more money by re-using Baby J's knit sweats for summer shorts. This morning I was going through all of his clothes; the stuff he's wearing currently (and making a pile to donate) and the big box of stuff I bought last summer at garage sales. I came across 6 pairs of sweats that currently fit J around the waist, but weren't the correct length. This is where that 1 minute of time = free shorts. The pictures speak for themselves :)
What are your favorite brand(s) of shorts for kids? How will you save money on this summer's wardrobe?
