What's it got to do with your family anyway? Maybe it was the sheer volume of stuff made them think that?

Sounds like a bargain to me

No it's not a lot of money at all, that's quite good. Unless ds 1 is smll for his age I don't see the clothes that you bought him lasting till next winter as he is nearly 7 ad you but him 6-7 year clothes, the next size up would have been better

Its doesn't seem a lot to me and even if it was it wouldn't have anything to do with anyone else what you spent your money on.

Kitting two kids out for £60 seems pretty good going to me!

Is this a stealth boast about how frugal you actually are? smile Sounds like you have done rather well for £59.

sounds reasonably cheap to me, but if you are skint and now have no money left for bills/food then it wouldnt be reasonable to spend that money..

either way, it isnt any of their business

More a boast about not being able to add up! £50 + £45+£22 does not equal £59 in anyone's books.
However not your families business, but it is a lot of clothes to buy at once, and a lot full stop IMO, 3 pairs of pj's each seems a little excessive at that age.

So it's 4 lots of jeans, 5 jumpers/cardigans and 6 long sleeved tops each? Plus pyjamas, underwear and socks?

That's a lot of clothes to buy all at once I guess. And for the school age child probably more than necessary as they'll spend a lot of time in school uniform.

But unless you are totally skint and/or prioritising clothes over something more important, it's entirely up to you how much you spend.

Sounds like a good deal to me too. Ignore your family, none of their business.

You said £59 between them!, it is that each!

5madthings Tue 06-Nov-12 19:48:12

loshad it worked out at £59 per child. So £118 total. and it sounds fine to me, pretty good value actually.

Loshad Tue 06-Nov-12 19:50:31

Yes but in the OP she says £59 between them, I am well aware that it is that each, but not sure the OP is.

That sounds like money well spent. Not a huge amount at all.

Seriously? That is super thrifty! I spend more than that one one outfit for my DS! heads to the kitchen to chop up credit cards
