3 things ruined -- $1.80!!
An unusual 3 articles of clothing were ruined this week -- all were dd6's :
unwashable paint on Old Navy jeans, a cute long sleeve shirt that got some kind of glue and paper stuck to it, and a cute Children's Place shirt that a local basketball team signed their names in permanent marker (dh gave permission).
I didn't mind a bit, since all of them were from the thrift store and were .60 a piece!!! I can't imagine if I would have put retail money into these clothes!
Another benefit of thrift store shopping (especially for kids)

Maybe you could try dying the pants to a the same color as the paint or just let her wear them for play clothes so she doesn't "damage" any new ones.~*Michelle*~~Wife to Rick since Dec. 19, 1986~~Mother to Richard, 27, Chris, 24, and Dakota, 21~~Special Education Teacher~02-26-2006, 08:51 PM #3
oh yeah, they will be play clothes.. my whole point was just the fact that I only paid .60 an item for them! I know people who would pay $22 for a kid's shirt - ok if you can, but that would be a big bummer!03-02-2006, 07:50 PM #4
i'll never go back to buying clothes at retail prices. shoes, yeah i still buy new ones; i walk / bike everywhere and need 'good' sneaks, but all my clothes come from thrift stores.
i agree, its so much nicer to rip/stain/wreck clothes that cost just a few bucks!!!!03-02-2006, 08:28 PM #5

I agree also. I need some new jeans and my son needs some new pants; I will go to the thrift store that we recently visited to buy these. I won't feel near as bad when he inevitably ruins them!03-02-2006, 08:46 PM #6

Kids, nothing is safe, lol! I also won't buy new ever again with the exception of shoes, I just can't justify that kind of money on clothing!

I know what you mean! My two boys eventually destroy every piece of clothing I get for them. We would be (more) broke if I paid anywhere near regular-store prices.
You know, I often read advice about purchasing "good quality" (read: full price expensive) clothing for your kids and then ebaying them or taking them to consignment stores. I always wonder who in the world is lucky enough to have kids who don't destroy their clothes?
