So before the kiddos got here, I bought them each a new outfit at Wal Mart. I had had my eye on a special dress for the oldest granddaughter, but I would not leave anyone out. I spent $20, got two dresses, two shirts and two shorts. There are still some warm days ahead, plus they are big enough the children will wear them next summer. Have you found any bargains lately? My grandkids always say "thank you" and always make us feel appreciated here.

@GardenGerty If we didn't shop online we'd have to drive hours to stores.

Yes, it is still hot enough to wear summer clothes but the stores want room for winter items.

@Happy2BeMe Good for you to be walking, especially at the mall with climate control and smooth floors.

They are normal kids, but very precious to me. I do think they are really cute, but I am prejudiced.

@GardenGerty It is okay to be prejudiced in this manner. We are all that when it comes to the ones we love.

I took my niece shopping for a few things for school. I felt so sorry for her. She was here visiting and I asked her if she was ready for school. she told me she had to wear her same clothes from last year. It broke my heart so I took her to Tati's where they had some fantastic deals on clothes for little girls her age.

I always had to wait a bit into the school year to afford new school clothes for my kids. This kiddos are home schooled, but it is still nice and fun to have new things.

We do not put the kids' pictures online much. I was happy to find some cute things for them. Our Wal Mart stores here in Kansas seem to be better run that where they are near Minneapolis. My daughter will not shop there.

That's nice of you to buy them new outfits and they appreciate it. I haven't been to the store for any bargains as I don't need any new clothes. I do try to help my sisters out though and buy clothes for my niece.

I have been getting rid of clothes from my closet and drawers. Now, when I think about buying something, I ask myself, "Now where will you put it?".

That's so nice and such a good deal! =) We only had one deal lately. We got 43 kelloggs cereal bowls for $.43! We were shocked when they rang up a penny each so we got all they had. Lol. Oh and they glow in the dark which made our kids happy!

One of my co workers got a jacket for a penny. We were out of town at an inservice and she went to Dollar General in that town, because she was cold in the air conditioning. She was surprised as it was originally marked $15.

I find a bargain hard to resist. My daughter tries to keep them from having too many items, but I feel like the second and fourth child definitely need something beyond hand me downs. She really did not mind as they will definitely be able to wear them some this fall and next spring and summer as well.
