I just bought three pair of shoes for my children and it almost never happens, actually. I've always had shoes from their cousins and friends so we've never really had to buy shoes for them. They have many that they can inherit from, and it is fortunate. I've never had to buy some clothes for them, only underwear and socks, really. The clothes we have received has been in such good condition that we almost never have any expenses when it comes to clothes. It's just little things we buy. Like in the winter we usually buy hats and mittens.
