Back To School Shopping!




I wanted to share some of the items I got A for back to school. I think I got some pretty good deals, and I know you all love to shop...so why not? I would also love to hear what you all got for the kiddos or if you've found any good deals lately!

I picked up some things from Gymboree's Smart Girls Rule line while they had their 40% off sale and I got Gymbucks!

Finishline

Burlington Coat Factory
HK Backpack: $10

All Accessories

All Shoes

All Bags (By the way, the plaid purse with the dog was $10)

I purchased this stuff during the last 1.5-2 months of Summer. I also purchased several things from TJ Maxx during the Summer (not pictured) and you know TJ Maxx always has a good deal.

Since Gymboree is a little more expensive than I'd like, I almost always buy stuff when it's on sale. They always have a sale so check out their website and sign up for their mailing list to be notified. Also try shopping when you're able to earn GymBucks. You earn $25 Gymbucks for every $50 you spend, then they have a period when you can redeem those GymBucks. It's like real cash in their store. If you have one GymBucks ($25 Gymbucks) when you get $50 worth of stuff you only have to pay $25. See how it works? Same goes for Crazy8 Crazy Cash, only you get $20 for every $40 spent. Both Gymbucks and Crazy Cash are going on right now!

Also, if there is an option for you to enter a promo code online, ALWAYS look for a promo code! Just google "Store name here promo code"...you will find one! I always find promo codes.

I ordered a cute Junk Food T-shirt from GAP to match the Crazy8 Pink Ruffle Coat but unfortunately they sent me the wrong shirt and their customer service has been horrible so needless to say I will never order from their website again. I'll post the shirt once I (finally) get the right one though.

I also want to add, you can find printable coupons for a lot of stores as well, so once again- Google is your friend! I believe Finishline has a $10 off coupon on their website.

And remember, sign up for those rewards cards! I have a rewards card with several stores including Gymboree and Finishline.

Oh...my favorite "tip", I almost always buy clothes/shoes a size or two bigger so the kids can grow in to them. So far it has worked like a charm and their stuff really lasts.

Anyone else have some shopping tips? Do share!
