Not a single day goes by in my life that I’m not eternally grateful for my children. Their presence in our lives is a constant joy, their laughter the biggest highlight of our day. I can honestly say that even among tantrums, sicknesses, days where exhaustion tests everyone’s tempers, etc. that I wouldn’t trade them for anything on this earth. That being said, the question on my mind as of late is: when the heck did children’s clothing become so expensive?! I swear that every time school starts or a growth spurt comes along, I drop the big bucks to outfit our kiddos. It’s insane.
It stands to reason that for little human beings, who don’t require much from a bolt of fabric to clothe, it wouldn’t cost a ton to make an entire outfit. If prices were realistic, it would cost substantially less to outfit a small child but these days, even a pair of nice jeans puts a dent in the old bank account. I did some digging into cost of clothing from years gone by and dating back to even the 70’s, clothing was much more affordable:
- Women’s Wrangler Jeans: $10
- Women’s Dresses: $8
- Entire Men’s 3-Piece Suit: $24
- Little Girls Clothing: $3.99 – $13.99 depending on brand
- Little Boys Clothes: $4.99 – 16.99
Little princesses should be able to look their best no matter what standing your wallet is in these days, which is why MooMooz offers outfits that will impress young ladies while allowing us busy, stressed out mamas to kick back and relax without the added stress of $100’s down the drain in clothing costs!
