This week I'm Glad my friend gives me lots of hand me down clothing

I have a friend who has always passed her son's clothes on to me.  She is really tight good with money and therefore doesn't buy more clothing than her son needs or spend massive amounts on individual pieces.  Yet somehow, I always love these clothes. They are in great condition (she tells me she throws away the crappy stuff so I don't have to) and they are always just right.

I've just spent 2 days getting out the winter size 2's for the Munchkin and a good chunk of these are from her now 8 year old son and were also worn by my Little Man, and the size 5's for the Little Man.   As usual I am not disappointed.  The Little Man is stoked (oh my bogan roots are showing!) because there are 3 Cars movie hoodies.  The Hoodie as an item of clothing is in great favour in our house and Cars has been played an infinite number of times.

Boy heaven is made of this...

It's costing me $0 in clothes this winter. Gotta love that!

Thanks for dropping by!

  1. Ah, a $0 winter wardrobe - gotta love that & gotta love such a generous friend.

  2. Totally agree with Vic! that's a very helpful friend to have!

  3. I love those friends too! I just wish Max would stop growing so fast as I am about to lose my number one cool-garments supplier. Her boy is 9, Max is almost 7, Max will be taller than him within six months. Sigh.

    But at least I get to pay her back for years of free, good clothes. I'll enjoy that. x

  4. Thanks for commenting. Writing this has made me realise I should buy her a thankyou gift. It really is a marvelous thing to not have the expense of clothes.


Thanks for taking the time to comment. I read them all and try very hard to reply.
