If you've been reading for awhile, you know that I hate paying full-price for stuff, especially clothing, which is probably why I love making clothes for my kids so much. When I go shopping, I usually walk in and make a bee line for the clearance rack. When it comes to clothes for myself, I have an awesome sister-in-law who dresses me, so she's just helping to enable my cheapness even more. And I love her for that. And don't even get me started on my husband. The man would be happy to own a pair of cargo shorts and 2 baseball tees, one in black and one in gray.
So back to baby clothes. At the end of each summer and winter, the hubs and I make a trip to some stores and stock up ahead of time for the coming seasons, which helps us get a lot of cute clothes for the kids at prices we would never be able to get in season. We happened to be in Babies R Us recently to find a new car seat for Connor, and they had an amazing clearance event that I couldn't pass up. Everything was discounted already with an additional discount on top of it PLUS a buy one get one free deal.
It was on.
Here are some of the cute things we scored for next year:
A bunch of cute matching graphic tees and comfy shorts,
(I just love the blue striped shirt for some reason, the color is so pretty! ...I mean manly.)
And of course, I had to get a pair of swim trunks for Connor for next summer. He's going to look like such a big kid :(
For Haley, I found this adorable ruffle skirt,
Jean shorts for $3!
And assorted other pants and shirts. But my favorite had to be these:
Adorable rainbow sneakers! Love love love. They match everything, so that's a major plus :)
Is anyone else an end-of-season shopaholic like me?
