A Great Blog about Saving Money on Your Kids

If you've got kids, I just ran across an awesome blog you might want to check out. It's the Baby Cheapskate blog. I was browsing it today and ran across some info about a sale at the Children's Place. I was curious and checked it out.

Net result? Five pairs of jeans and a pair of sneakers for Wyatt, plus 4 pairs of pjs for the baby with two day shipping (because we leaving on Monday - eek!) for only $50. There was a coupon code on the blog I used, and the most expensive thing was the sneakers, which cost $10.

Yeah, I'm pretty happy. I've been searching for some jeans for Wyatt for awhile now. They are hard to find for anything less than $15, and the ones I've bought at the thrift store always end up with holes in the knees. Boys are too hard on pants to buy them secondhand, I guess. These bad boys cost me all of 5 bucks a piece. I considered buying a few more, too, but that should be ok with a few cords and a khaki or two.

My one regret? I wish I'd found this out sooner, before the clearance stuff was picked through. As it was, a couple things I put in my cart sold out while I was looking. Luckily, they weren't things I really needed.

I LOVE deals! You can't go wrong when you get a deal & share it with everyone else. I've forwarded this on to my sis who has a little guy. She was pretty thrilled.

By the way, welcome back! I was wondering what had happened to you.
