This store had little over half a circular rack full of snow pants. They also had winter coats on sale. We decided to buy size 5 pants, which look huge, so that they can wear them not only next year but the year after that.
Rich found bins of winter hats while I was checking out.

I decided to not buy anything else even though I saw other sale items that could have been purchased for next year. I still have mixed feelings on the whole buying ahead thing. It worked well when the girls were babies and growing so fast. But now, pick up an a skirt in size 4 and compare it to a size 5 - there's not much difference. They've been able to wear most items for two years.
Okay, so I was a bit irked with OshKosh and their couponing. I had one of those "15% off your ENTIRE purchase" coupons. Of course, the fine print excludes this and that and this and that. Whatever. I handed it over and asked if I could use it. "No, sorry. It excludes clearance items."
The rack with the snow pants on it had a "take an additional 20% off the lowest price" sign but it didn't say "clearance." The receipt shows that 20% off as "clearance." I can't stand when stores do this. Make. It. Clear. Clearly that 15% off wasn't on my ENTIRE purchase.
