Well, after 8 years of homeschooling, ds2 is headed to public high school. This means we are part of the whole “back to school” shopping frenzy lol. And anyone with boys knows how much they love to go clothes shopping! Ds4 and dh opted out from the get-go, so it was just me, ds3 (hoping for a pit stop at a store that sells Webkinz I’m sure) and ds2 who headed into town for this venture.
We actually wound up doing great! I had seen on many blogs that JCPenney was having a clearance sale and there were printable coupons online as well so that was our first stop. Turns out our local store was also offering a sales tax break even though Florida decided not to this year. Score!
Ds got 4 very nice Arizona shorts, two polo type shirts and one super nice woven button up shirt, all for $60.00. The button up and one of the polo shirts alone cost more than that! Our receipt showed that we had $186 in savings. Unbelievable! The mall was so crowded and it took us so long to shop and try on clothes that we decided to call it quits after that. Sigh. It’s hard to believe sometimes, but my boys really are growing up…and way too fast for my pleasure. :)
