If you are like me, you are always looking to make your dollar stretch as far as it can, and I know many of you do this for back to school shopping. Sometimes that means cutting coupons, sometimes it means shopping during sales, other times it means leaving something on the shelf you really really want, but just did not need, or didn't need at that price. Sometimes it means waiting until the SPCA is having a Buy One Get One Free deal on cats....hence the reason we have two!
We currently have an almost 2 yr old son, and a 3 month old daughter, and some people think it's sad that they don't get "new" clothing, but I say when you live within walking distance of a good will store, why buy brand new when you can find great clothing for cheap?!?! Do we buy gifts brand new...yes. Do we buy undergarments brand new....yes. But why do we need to buy pjs and shirts/shorts, or even jackets brand new. Kids grow out of things faster than they can wear them so most clothing looks brand new.
Another thing we like to do is purchase giftcards when there are deals. Especially around the holidays many restaurants offer bonus giftcards or coupons/vouchers with the purchase of $25/$50/$100 dollars in giftcards. We do this and use them all year long. This is why I was thrilled to learn about these exciting Meijer deals below:
