I Think I'm in LOVE!

Okay. Those of you who know me at all are aware that I would rather sit on my tail and shop online than gather from within myself the will to dress myself and my children, compile all the "going-out" stuff and the stroller and haul myself out to any store. Seriously. I'd buy groceries online if I wasn't so embarrassed about how lazy that makes me sound (yes, I've looked into it).




As such, I often peruse my favorite websites and hit them up when the things I want go on sale. For example, last week I finally got a Land's End coat I've had my eye on for months, because now it's 50% off.



Anyway, the last few days I've been poking around Children's Place (one of only a few places I know of that sell pants with adjustable waistbands for the child who continues to grow up but not out). They have a bunch of stuff on clearance, so yesterday I sorted through all the things I have for Wyatt and Jana and settled on what they still need so we're all ready for the next growth spurt. I had a blast, because everything I got was at least 40% below the normal price. As I was checking out, I decided on a whim to google "Children's Place coupons." Lo and behold, I find this random website with an online code to enter- I tried it and it worked!



Hallelujah!



So in addition to everything being on sale, I got an extra 15% off the total. *sweet* And since CP only charges $5 shipping no matter how much you spend, I totally cleaned up! All in all, I got Wyatt 3 shirts, 6 pants, a suit, a pair of shoes, 2 little sweaters, a hat and 2 pairs of jammies, and for Jana I got a dress, a sweater, 3 shirts, a hat and 2 pairs of jammies.


Here's a little sampling of the cute stuff I got (I'm SO excited to take pictures of the kids in the matching dress and sweater vest!!!):









For those of you interested, here's the aforementioned website:

They have a bunch of stores you can choose to look for coupons for. As I said, I think I'm in love!




One of these days I'll post more family pictures, but here's some of the kids when we went to Blast Off! the other day. Poor quality cell phone pix, so I doctored them up a little. :)





I love this one- even when he's sleepy he just keeps playing!



We hope you're all well and happy! We are nigh unto ecstasy over the nice weather, I've even bought the seeds for this year's garden- the plan is to plant a salsa garden and make and can some delicious salsa this fall. Yipee!



Love love love and Gringo's chips and salsa (second best after Dad's homemade),

Liz said...

Gotta love the good deals out there. Last week I took advantage of Old Navy's stuff and save 20% off of the clearance. Yay!

Diana said...

Nothing can make a girl happier than getting good deals. Way to shop for great deals! Mmmm... salsa sounds good. Chili's anyone?

Marianne said...

Probably 80% of my kids clothes are bought that way from Children's Place. You should also call their customer service number and ask about becoming a Place Perks cardholder. For every $75 you spend, they give you $10 for free.
Now I'm itching to get on their website. Must resist....already spent April's clothes budget...

I always go a little crazy at children's place. I spent over $100 there in Park City. As I showed Ty all the things I bought, I never told him the final price, I just said...This was on sale and he nods in appreciation.

Amber said...

I'm not as familiar with the Children's Place, but Old Navy has the adjustable waisteband and PRAISE be to that!! With just a quick adjustment, Sammi fits all the capri's of last year as shorts for this year! Old Navy also does the $5 shipping, it's cool to find another place like that, I'll hafta check it out thanks so much and WAY cute pics!

I haven't had to buy much yet by way of children's clothes, but I feel it's coming soon. I did already decide that a girl should NEVER have to pay full price for clothes so small. Thanks so much for the great tip! I love it!

Tyson and Emily said...

Thanks for the coupon website, I'll definately use it next time. You bought some really cute stuff for your really cute kids!
