I overheard these women in the carpool lane at the kids' school badmouthing a child there. They didn't say the child's name (and the kids weren't out of class yet to hear) but said, "That poor girl is always wearing used clothes and it's just so tacky!"
Do you agree that used clothes are tacky, or do you think these moms are just weird/rude?
No. I don't think it's tacky. Wth is wrong with people. We garage sale, go to thrift stores, etc. My kids have new stuff but when I'm on one of my thrifty binges (I'm a garage saling thrift store addict) and I see something I know they would love to have I buy it for them used our not. I've gotten some clothes for them at these places that are normally 40-60 bux in a store. I paid 5 bux. Got my youngest son a brand new condition OU Jersey that is 25 in store. I got it for 2 bux. Perfect condition.
With the economy the way it is, almost everyone I knows shops at Goodwill--it's the most popular place in town--I think it's a matter of being smart with your money. There will always be those who look down their noses at others, no matter what they do--to each his own, I say...
Very rude! My kids wear used clothes.I get name brand cheap also.and the clothes are nice looking when I buy them, then just wash them before wear them.nobody would even know they was used unless I told them.alot of people can't afford $15 for a shirt for a 6 year old just cause its name brand.I can get 5 shirts for the price of that one with it being name brand.
