I love a good deal. Really.
My dear husband has come home on more than one occasion letting me know about some major repair that needs to happen. Transmission repairs, furnace replacement, roof damage, etc. Each explanation from him ends the same way. He gives me the gory details and expected cost and I reply with, “What can I get for $20?”
He is typically not amused. I normally am.
I know I don’t have to do much convincing that raising kids can be expensive. However, I’ve learned a few tips along the way from other budget conscious moms. If I’m going to dress my kids ‘on the cheap’ I still want them to look cute. Well, as cute as kids that look like they’re extras on a Depression Era film can look……which is actually pretty darn cute.
So, from time to time I will send out bargains, deals, info that might help as you shop for all sorts of things. I promise to always put ‘Deals’ in the subject. If you’d prefer to hear about my crazy crew but avoid the sales and deals, just skip the posts labeled ‘Deals.’
I shop at Gymboree more than I care to admit. They often run good sales and I normally receive a 20% off coupon in the mail. Combining the coupon and sales can lead to some very inexpensive outfits. Currently, they are running 50% off clearance and a ‘$3.99 and up’ sale.
I recently purchased matching pajamas for the entire family.
Oh yes, the groaning you’ll hear on Christmas morning will be from my husband. And likely the oldest son. But I’m the mom and this year I WIN!!
In response to my original question, you can actually get quite a few things for my $20 budget!
This adorable plaid shirt is only $6.99. Regularly $29.95
Same story, different plaid. $7.99. Regularly $29.95
Super cute striped dress is $12. Regularly $29.95.
I love getting my girls matching dresses. These are $7.50. Regularly $26.95
These socks are $1.50 and colorful enough to be an easy match while doing laundry. Win/win. And just think how many pairs I can get for my $20 budget.
FYI. They have a ton of stuff on sale but sizes vary on the items that are least expensive.
P.S. Ladies, your husbands messaged me and said they also want the striped reindeer pajamas. Ok, maybe not….
