Did I ever mention how much I love shopping? I love shopping because I LOVE looking for great deals. Plain and simple. The more I can save off retail, the more I love to shop.
This past weekend was Tanger Outlets Back to School Taste & Style Experience. While not as epic as their previous Taste & Style Event, I managed to save a TON of money getting Sweet Pea some clothes for our upcoming yearly family vacation as well as next summer.
So here is what I got. My mother-in-law watched Sweet Pea for me, so I got to shop in peace. LOL I did meet my dear friend and shopping buddy, Shirlee, at Claire's where we headed over to Carter's. The deals there were meh. I wasn't very impressed although I did want to buy everything because of the explosion of cuteness. But I digress...
We then headed over to the food trucks because it was 11:30 and I didn't eat breakfast. I decided to grab a $4 soft chicken taco from Gezzo's Grille. And it was delicious! There weren't as many Food Trucks as there were in March, but they still had a great selection and of course my favorite!
And then back to shopping!
I love Gymboree. Did you know that their clothes are pre-washed to reduce shrinking? I found some super cute shirts and shorts for $5 a piece! I stocked up for next summer for Sweet Pea.
Osh Kosh B'Gosh was were the GREAT deals were. Shirlee had to leave before I went to this store. I always check out clearance and although Osh Kosh doesn't let you use coupons on certain items like clearance, but they were having an additional 30% off clearance sale PLUS spend $20 and get a FREE $20 Shutterfly gift card! How great is that?!
Hubby absolutely needed some white under shirts, so I went to a Hanes Brands store and browsed. Okay so I'm going to confess something here. I never buy Hubby white under shirts. His mom is the only one who does. They were prices $15.99 each and if you bought three, you got one free. I had to look up online to see if this was a good deal. I had NO idea! I got to use my 20% off coupon that I printed at home and what was left on my gift card, so I only came $9 out of pocket for the whole shopping trip!
Have you been back to school shopping yet? Are you going to use coupons? Where are you going?
