I have been babysitting these last couple weeks in an effort to get some new clothes. Well, finding the time to go shopping and finding something that fits is another matter. Plus if I take children with me, it is pretty much impossible with ladies dressing rooms etc. So, anyhow, I now have a small amount to spend on some clothes, but not the time really to go and plus I was discouraged when I did stop to look at what was available if I will find anything I like and fits. I have a odd size so it is hard for me to find things the right size, length, waist size etc.
I have decided that I am going to sew myself some new skirts as that is easy, they turn out fairly well if I take a little time with them and I have the material, I think. But I have to find some nice tops which are not as hard to find, but still I do not like sleeves that barely exist and thin fabric that feels like if one of my sons grabs it in the grocery in an attempt to stay with me, it will tear! I have tried looking online, but it is hard seeing as things are too long, too short, don’t fit the way I want and I waste my money on postage…..
<p> Then of course, I went through the boys clothing and they had enough pretty much. P. could use some new pants as he had only 2-3 pairs and a nice Sunday shirt. I found him a long sleeve cotton one at Walmart for $3, but now his everyday shirts several of them and the other boys got several holes in them…..
I was looking online at Children’s Place as they had some shirts, shoes etc for $5, but then I did not know if they needed them that bad and they had some nice polo shirts, but now they do not…so maybe I will go there if they have any left!
Anyhow, if anyone has any advice on how to stay caught up so no raggedy boys occur and mom does not go without clothes again because the boys tore their shirts to shreds……
