I’m still in school-shopping mode, which brings me, literally, to The Children’s Place. I see their collections all the time for the magazine because they have plenty for babies. (My favorite recommendation: awesome, long-enough pajamas.) I go there personally, too, for my bigger kids, because their clothes are so affordable. If you’re a bargain-hunter, which I definitely drift toward, you can get some real steals. When you make a purchase in one of their stores, give them your email address. Trust me, you get coupons for up to 25 percent off. Use the coupons on a sale day and you’re set.
For instance: That’s me holding a shopping bag with three shirts, three pairs of undies, three pairs of socks, two pairs of tights, a pair of leggings and a pair of pants for Grace, along with a kitty necklace I bought for her on a whim and a new purple lunchbox that she really needs, as well as a hooded cardigan, a pair of socks and two button-up shirts for Joe. I brought my 25 percent off coupon and got the entire haul for about $85. Crazy!
I did walk past the baby clothes, and I so want a niece or nephew in my life so I could buy them one of these amazing animal bodysuits. Shhh don’t tell my brother and his new wife, I’m trying not to pressure them!
But enough about me. What about you? Where do you love to shop for your kids or baby-to-be, and what kind of stuff are you looking for?
