I was out today looking for an alternative to the super cute storage bins that are pictured below in my post about my playroom. That's another post in itself, and I'll update on all of that another time. Anyways, while I was out today I came across some really great deals on a number of things and wanted to post about them for those of you who may be interested.
K-Mart has a large majority of their kid's summer clothes on clearance racks, and their other clothes are marked down as well. I bought Little Miss 6 outfits, a few shirts, and a pair of pants for next Summer all for about $35. Not bad considering they're brand new. I guess it's that time of year to start watching the sales and clearance racks once again. Unfortunately, and I'm kicking myself, I didn't "stock up" on clothing for this coming Fall. So my baby girl will be wearing a lot of consignment sale clothing, which is absolutely okay, but I do like her to have a few things that were new just for her. I am having a more difficult time this go around trying to determine what size she will be wearing next summer. I bought a combination of both 18 and 24 month items just based on the width of the waistbands. I'm assuming she'll still have her petite waist, but we shall wait and see.
I also found some great buys on books at Dollar General and the Dollar Tree. I was able to get 8 biblical board books for $10. I found 4 large OT books, and 4 smaller NT books and I'm super excited about them all. The Dollar Tree also has some great educational materials for little ones that I'm planning to go back and stock up on later. The materials are a bit advanced for my Little Miss, but they will be great to have stored away for another year or two. They also had some bulletin board items that will be perfect for our "school" section of the playroom. Good stuff.
