And if you had to get another job, you may want to consider working only on your DH's days off or opposite shifts than him. It's not ideal, but IMO better than daycare. DH and I have had to do this for about 4 years.
Contact Salvation Army and other thrift stores in you area, they will give you vouchers for 2 or 3 changes of clothing for your entire family. Also try www.freecycle.org and see if you can't score some free clothes off there.
