Saving Money on Kids Pajamas

I hate spending money on clothes that I am going to have to get rid of in six months to a year.  I mean what is the point in that.  The biggest one to drive me nuts is kids pajamas.  I decided this year that it would stop.  I thought of a way to avoid buying to many pairs every year.

I thought about things a lot, and decided on what I truly needed every year.  The kids are only able to wear them for a short time and they are always still in good condition.  I would pass on all of Cheyenne's old ones to Austin but that meant that I still had to buy new ones for Dakota every year.

So I decided rather than buying them for Cheyenne and Dakota, I would just buy some for Cheyenne that Dakota could wear as well.  This year I bought five pairs of knit pants in masculine colors and a package of five white tee shirts, for each of my older two (I already had enough for Austin for this year).  Now I can pass them down to the next child each year.

I will only ever have to buy one set a year. Once they have been through Austin, it will be about time to retire them and I will have saved so much by simplifying everything.  Not to mention it is that much less that I will have to store.  I really like this solution and thankfully the kids don't mind being dressed alike at least for bed.  So this is just one of the many ways that I save money.


  1. That's a great idea. We're both the same on this thing.

  2. I am so glad to hear that someone feels the same way. I figure by the time they have gone through my three they are pretty worn out. Thank you so much, Madelene, for the compliment.

  3. By the way Madelene, I absolutely love your product. Escape proof PJs would have been nice back in the day, when my kids were a lot littler. Now we are in the phase of try to keep the kids in the same clothes, all day. I really don't love the amount of laundry it creates when they want to change clothes five times.
