I talk about running A LOT. Occasionally, I stray off the topic and today is one of those days. I have been very busy getting my kids ready to go back to school. I have three kids and they all need school supplies and clothes. This last Friday my husband and I purchased a home here in California, FINALLY! We are so happy and think we found the greatest house at a price within our budget. This is our new pad…
I have so much going on that I find it difficult to breath these days and it is about to get much more intense. As you know, buying a house and getting it started is expensive. I had a very small budget for kids clothes this year, so I hit up one of Kohl’s super sales and, with a little creative thinking, did pretty well for my daughter who will be entering Kindergarten this year. I should add that she does NOT wear anything “scratchy, itchy or pokey,” so part of this challenge was to find clothes she would wear that are comfortable and reasonable to play and run in. Everything purchased met her seal of approval… each is soft, comfortable, machine washable and supports running and climbing the jungle gym.
I bought 4 bottoms (2 skorts and 2 pants) these were $20.00 marked down to $9.99. The skorts are made from soft flannel and a cotton under short, the grey leggings have small studs lining the bottom of each leg, and the purple jeans are thin and feather soft.
For the 4 tops, each top was marked down from $16.00 to $7.49. Again, these are super soft and I love the rhinestone details on the t-shirts. You could layer a long sleeve shirt under these in the winter month’s and create the same look.
One pair of shoes. The shoes were $34.99 marked down to $16.99. These silver flats reminded me of little Tom’s, but are Carter’s, a brand most Mom’s love and trust. I love that they’re a neutral and go with everything, but still have some sparkle.
Here was my total:
I was given an additional 20% ($15.86) off for using my Kohl’s card
which brought it down to:
To top it off, I received $30.00 Kohl’s cash, that I will use to buy a few long sleeves tees and some tights to layer with these outfits when it gets colder.
What about you? have you found any great back to schools deals?
