In The Long Run, You Get What You Pay For

I learned a lesson while shopping for clothes for my kids. You get what you pay for. I try to save money whenever I can because life is expensive when you have three children. I want my children to wear the best clothes possible, but sometimes the clothes are incredibly expensive.

I bought some children's clothes from Walmart a few months ago. I got good deals on the clothing, so I was happy. The problem was the clothing wore out quickly because of the lack of quality. The clothes were cheaper, but they were thinner and my kids tore holes through the knees. I remember one time I bought a pair of shoes at K-Mart and the heal fell off in a week. I realized that sometimes cheaper is not cheaper in the long run.

Now, I try to buy quality clothes for kids at the best prices possible. I know if I buy quality, the clothes will last longer and they usually fit better too. I learned my lesson, you get what you pay for. I don't go to Walmart to buy clothes for my children any longer. They advertise better prices, but the proof is in the pudding and i'm not buying it any longer.
