Sean has many, many hand-me-downs clothes – used ones by his big brother. However, I couldn’t use the 0 -3 months sizes as Sean was much smaller in size when he was born, so had to buy new ones. But after month 4, most of the hand-me-downs could already fit him. I am thankful as these hand-me-downs save me money, at least I get to buy other essentials. However, not all the outfits can be worn – there are some particular ones which, in my eyes, just do not suit him. Funny but true. When I tried them on him, these lots somehow do not look right on him. So, I keep these ones aside.
No doubt, I say this again, hand-me-downs are super saver! The art of handing down baby clothes is a tried and true practice. As a child, I used to have lots of them as I have three sisters before me. It was practised by my parents 95% of the time. Reason and a fact: a super cost savings!
Protesting seemed fruitless. I had actually tried especially during Christmas time wishing (and wanting) I had my very own brand new dress!
Do you practise hand-me-downs too?
