Back to school

I just wanted to let you all know how pumped I am at the sales I hit up for Kies today. 1st of all- I can't believe how much it cost for school supplies! They were $31.29! We went to Billings to hit some garage sales, and ended up mostly empty handed... so we decided to try and find some good sales to get Kies some back to school clothes. Poor boy is growing so fast that his 5T pants are highwaters on him, and he just turned 5 in May! And he only has a handful of 5T shirts, most of the ones he has are 4T and they are just about to be belly shirts... in fact his favorites are already started to bare some drift! So I had heard that JC Penny's was having a back to school sale and that door busters were from 7-1 Saturday... so we were about to head that way, but decided to stop by Sears first at the West Park Plaza. Not sure why I did this, but thank goodness I did! We got a TON of clothing there for not very much at all... in fact I bought some stuff for Ansleigh for next summer too(poor Brensyn was feeling left out today). I ended up buying 1 pair of pants, 4 pairs of good shorts, 7 shirts and 1 full B-ball outfit(shirt and shorts) for $38.29. That's 14 items at an average of $2.74 per item!!!! YAY!!! At full price I would have paid $165.97! Then I went to Old Navy where the deals were not so bueno... spent $39.00 and only saved $29.00 but still saved a bunch! So all together We spent $108.58 and saved $156.68. I am pretty happy about the day... and we also saved on a pair of gym shoes for him, but I'm not going to pull those out and look how much they used to be... so just imagine the savings you could get going to Sears!!! I'm crazy and have been up since 5:30 so I need to go to bed now! Take Care!

I'm glad my kids are really little and I can get a bunch of cute things for way cheap. I found myself some really cute l.e.i's for 3 bucks a few weeks ago!!! It was effing awesome, plus a shirt for 5 and a pair of sparkly purple shoes for 3!! and a sweater too for 3. It totally rocked!!
