Last month, I informed Rich that I was finished purchasing clothing items for the girls for awhile. He was more than happy to hear that. Their closet is ridiculous and stuffed (and that will be a future blog post, I assure you.) I've already purchased many size 3T winter items and I know that all of their summer dresses will fit them next year so I decided to cut back on the bargain shopping. But I do have an exception clause.
I managed to find my way over to the Children's Place outlet store the other day. Have you noticed the adorable little pink hats that the girls have been wearing? I LOVE how they look in them and they love wearing them. They won't fit next year so I was determined to buy similar hats at a bargain price.
And I can never ever turn down dressy clothes marked down to bargain prices either. I left the store with 3 sweaters, 3 skirts and 3 caps in size 3T - all for $43.
The nonsale cost for all of these items was $130. I saved 66% off of original cost. I should note that part of that savings is due to my having a store credit card and enough earned points to give me an additional 10% off for all of 2009.
What's funny about those hats is that I was so happy to find three hats in size 3T AND in different colors. I like for the girls to have some individuality. And the girls have their own colors as well. Em is always purple and if there's white, that goes to Anna. Allie is usually pink (or red.)
