Thrifty Thursday: Shop Off Season
This is the best way to buy kids clothes. I can generally get most, if not all of their winter/school clothes for the next year. My girls are getting a little tricker. For shirts I just bump up a size and it seems to work great. Pants, though, I have to make an educated guess.
Old Navy is my favorite. Generally, around the 2nd or 3rd week in January, Old Navy marks all of it's clearance an extra 50% off. Which is when I go and stock up. Sometimes they do it a couple of times during the year, but it's not quite as easy to tack down. If you sign up for their emails, however, you will occasionally get a notice that it's happening.
Every once in a while I can find some pretty great stuff at Target and the Children's Place, and I love the clearance racks at the Gap and Old Navy outlets.
This is one of those instances that planning ahead really pays off. And honestly, who wants to pay $30 for a shirt anyway?
