Re: Do you let your kids wear hand-me-down shoes?
yes- I 've only boughten him one pair of new shoes and that was because he wore a hole overnight in his other shoes and I had to get something fast. I love the great deals I get on good-excellent condition shoes that another child barely (and sometimes never) wore. I wear used shoes as well- but again- they need to be in great condition and I clean out the inside and outside of all the shoes before we wear them. I know we could afford to buy new but I just feel better (not slamming anyone- this is just a personal thing) when I save resources and use something that has a lot of life left in it that may otherwise be thrown away- besides that- I love a bargain!
