41 Awesome Refashions for Kids

Is your money a little tight this month? We've all been there. If you have growing kids, or grandkids, it seems like their wardrobe is ever-evolving with how fast they grow. Well, I have an easy and money-saving solution for you. 

I'm almost positive you or someone else in your house has something hanging in a closet or stuffed in the back of a drawer, that they no longer wear. Am I right? If not, hit up your local second hand store because they usually have plenty of decent items. Most second hand stores even help charities, so your money will go to a good cause. Either way, pick out some old clothes you are willing to part with and get to work. Your child is about to get an updated, affordable wardrobe!
