Does second hand clothing bother you? (Hand-me-downs, garage sale, thrift)?---for your kids or for you?

doesn't bother me, but finding anything decent in my size is challenging. Maggie's gotten a few hand me downs, and I enjoy putting her in several of them.

What I don't like I don't mind tossing. I mind it a lot more when it's something someone's given her that's brand new and never been worn.

Yard sales and thrift I can be a little bit leery of, but hand-me-downs among the family are awesome. Handed down a lot of Bea's stuff, too.

nope, 90% of the things my kids have worn throughout their lives so far have been handed down.

nope, not one bit. I hate paying full price for new things when kids grow so quickly

I love thrift stores for clothes for my self and kids... there is no way my husband would though.. but he wears the same type of jeans, jean shorts, and grey pocket t-shirts.

Mosr of her clothes were her sister's or from Once Upon A Child. As long as it's not dingy or stained, I don't mind.

I don't mind them either, even though I rarely get them. My sister was giving me hand me downs for a while but our kids only being 4 months apart, it kind of slowed down since they kind of evened out on the size now.

All my kids clothes are second hand, mainly from charity shops.
I won't dress them in dirty second hand clothes, obviously!

I love second hand stuff! Almost all of Ellie's clothes are hand me downs from a friend. And I love shopping at Goodwill.
