I love when I am able to find bargains on clothes for my boys. Like a lot of people I grew up getting a new dress every Easter. I like to get my boys new dressy outfits for Easter too. With the many projects we are working on in our new home and having to purchase a new car (life sometimes!) there wasn’t a lot in our budget for clothes…okay so there was nothing in the budget for new clothes 🙁 I managed to cut our grocery bill down a bit for February so that I could spend $20 on outfits for them. I scored big time this year and ended up only having to spend $10, that even included adorable dress shoes for my 1 year old!
Aren’t they handsome?
I found my youngest son’s outfit on ThredUp.com
If you haven’t heard of ThredUp yet, it is like an upscale consignment store online. Very cool! When you refer friends you both get a coupon code for a certain amount off, usually $10. I happened to catch them when they were doing a promo and got $15 for referring a friend 🙂 Basically I only paid to have the items shipped to me.

I made his tie from some scrap fabric I had leftover from a previous project. I am not a wonderful seamstress, but the tie was super easy to do, and it turned out cute.
I used a tutorial and pattern found over at ImSharingTheWealth. I have lots of little pieces of fabric that I intend to use to make a few more 🙂
I found my older son’s outfit at a local Thrift store. They had sent out a coupon for $5 off any purchase. So we were also able to get him a new pair of pajamas (his old ones were a bit snug), and a pair of jeans. But the dress outfit was just $4.99!
