As you know, we are going local with our kids clothing as we transition ourselves to more locally sourced and ethically made clothing for our family. As you also know, that transition can be very expensive.
We are frugal people, hence the Frugal Friday segment on the blog. We don’t like paying full price for anything if we don’t have to. One thing I’ve learned through this transition is that being in-the-know can save you a lot of money. Whether it’s following the right accounts on Instagram, being on subscription lists, or just knowing the right people it can save you some dollars.
Yesterday, one of my favourite local brands, Jax & Lennon, had a warehouse sale where they clear out all of the last season’s clothes at a discount. Everything was minimum 35% off all the way up to 75% off. I found out about it through the Instagram account and knew I would be going.
After shopping yesterday, our kids are good for all seasons at all ages. We only need to continue to buy new stuff for Nixon as he grows.
Through this whole process, we haven’t paid full price for anything. We’ve always waited for a sale or discount code before buying.
We will be doing a fully detailed post about our favourite local brands and why we love some more than other in the near future so stay tuned!
Never stop adventuring!
