Best Clothing Store (Kids)

Savers

Children frequently display a couple of traits that absolutely confound those responsible for clothing them. First, they grow, unpredictably and erratically, making September's prized T-shirt an undersized hand-me-down by the holidays. Second, they are resolutely irrational: That pricey department-store dress your daughter absolutely must have stands a decent chance of never being worn, for mysterious and never-divulged reasons. Shopping for kids' clothes at Savers takes the pressure off everyone; with revolving discounts on already low prices, a diverse stock of items that changes from week to week, and a funky, fun atmosphere, this is thrift-store shopping done right. And there's always the chance you'll find something for yourself—and it won't be instantly recognizable to everyone you know as having come from Target.
