Usually by now I've spent at least a few weeks doing some bargain school shopping. I haven't hit any of the penny sales at Office Max. I haven't compared all the ads. Nope, I just hadn't done it.
I do have a tote that has some back to school clothes that I've grabbed on clearance since spring. When I opened the tote today, I found that my girls seem to have been in there, as only boy clothes were left! Clothes-loving girls!
Well the girls and I went out tonight. They are set now! And I think I've got everything on the class lists for all four kids. The boys get to go out tomorrow. With clearances and sales, we saved close to $400 tonight! I'd have to sit down and calculate it all out to be certain (and I'm not going to). I absolutely love buying things dirt cheap! I think my biggest steal of the evening was a pair of shoes for the boys for $3. They look like they'll be pretty good running shoes too!
Tonight I am thankful for finding such good deals with my later-in-the-season school shopping! After the boys stuff tomorrow, a few more boxes of tissues and cleaning wipes and we'll be ready to go!
