when I was younger all my clothes were from my mother's friend
u think you had it rough?
my dad used to tell my mom to give me my brothers clothes, while all the other
little girls were wearing normal clothes, I didnt mind them from my cousin ( who
was a girl) but not my brothers, I would hide them at the bottom of my drawer for a long
time till it was safe to put in the pile of clothing going out to the thrift store..
one thing about polish, they are really really frugal with money, it was a chore
getting school clothes, but soon as I was able to buy my own, I worked and paid
for them. Paper routes, babysitting, any income was good income.
