Where & How I Shop for the Kids.

Scarlett: Shirt sold out but another cute one HERE. Similar Jeans, Sandals, similar sunglasses  Maxwell: Similar Shirt, similar jeans, sandals, sunglasses 

When we took our trip to Disney, I had a lot of questions about where I shop for the kids and so I thought I would put a little post together. It's pretty basic actually. I don't spend boatloads of money on their clothes. I've learned that they outgrow things SO fast that it's not worth it to waste money (that could be spent on travel). I look for sales. I input my email to every place that I love to shop and when they send me deal alerts, I go for them. I have done this long enough to know which ones are the mega good sales.  I just bought a ton of clothes for the kids from Old Navy'/Gap because they have the best sale online right now! I got them about 10-15 items each and the total was about $160!!  And it was cute stuff! Not just the basics. When I shop Gap/Old Navy,  I always check for the codes. They drop the prices quite a bit and the codes aren't always obvious.

I also love Zara even though Scarlett's clothes can be a little more expensive on there. Still, you can find cute pieces that will last awhile so I think it's worth it. I will share what I just bought there as well. Some other places that I love to shop is of course, Target. Cat and Jack is the cutest line ever along with a few others. With those I just shop in store and make sure to use my Target Red Card for 5% off and Cart Wheel.  I love H&M as well. They don't ever usually have sales but the clothes are pretty inexpensive. Once in awhile I will splurge and buy them something from J Crew or Nordstrom but not very often. For shoes, I swear by Zappos because I can order anything and have them try things on, whatever doesn't fit, I send back with free shipping. Also you can become a VIP member after you spend so much and so shipping is free as well.  I also love Toms. The kids ask to wear their Toms more than any other shoe. Toms has a lot of sales and free shipping events and they always give to good causes.

Also, anything that I shop online for, I make sure to go through Ebates first. Why not? It's free money!!!! If you don't use Ebates, you should! I have gotten a lot of money back from just using it for everything I buy online. When we lived in Massachusetts, I shopped second hand stores all the time. I'm not quite as familiar with anything here in TX yet but if I found a cute vintage/second hand store, I would definitely shop there for the kids (and myself actually) too.

I do find it harder to find boy clothes than girl clothes. And it is true that they just seem to have more in the girls departments than the boys. But I find that when I shop online for boys, I seem to find more. I've linked a few of the kids outfits under the photos. If you guys like this type of post, I will do them periodically. Also, I'm going to try a few shops that I found recently and I will share them with you if I like them.
