So here's a little secret I want you to know - when I shop for my kids (okay when I shop for clothes in general) I never ever pay full price for anything. Basically, I'm morally opposed to paying full price because nothing makes me more angry than doing that and then walking by that same item a week later marked down 20%. Paying full price for kid clothes is especially ridiculous because kids are the ruiner of everything, clothes included.
I like my receipts to look something like this:
Nice, right? I scored over $60 worth of merch for $27.69. But Kalli, are you an extreme couponer? What is your secret? Here's the secret: sign up for rewards programs and email lists and pay attention. Gymboree, which is where this particular shopping excursion took place, has an awesome rewards program that is free to participate in, offers regular discounts, and even pays you back by letting you earn"GymBucks" which you can redeem for discounts on future purchases. I like Gymboree for a few different reasons; #1. their rewards program is pretty bonkers, and #2. they make quality clothes that my kids won't ruin in like .05 seconds, #3. they have some decent sales that bring me great joy because as I mentioned before - I don't pay full price for anything that isn't perishable.
I took Jill shopping with me last night, and we made a bunch of awkward jokes and took even more awkward pictures. Because we are nothing if not consistent with those types of things in our friendship.
See how happy Jill is? She signed up for the rewards program and got 25% off. Bring in a friend, sign up together, and you can get the same discount, see the details HERE.
We bought matching Christmas jammies for our kids for when we all move in together on that compound we're building and live like real Mormons should.
