...and it's no secret that I love to shop! I only like to shop if I know I'm getting a good deal, though. I have already started back to school shopping, my oldest will be in First Grade this year. FIRST GRADE. I get to keep my youngest home with me for one more year before she starts Kindergarten. She is NOT happy that she is just enough past the cutoff that they won't let her in this year, and while she's probably more than ready to go, I'm secretly happy she gets more time at home with me first. I'm so not ready for both of my girls to be in school. Anyway, back to school shopping. I've been picking up school supplies here and there, mostly at CVS and Walgreens, but I got a few things at Walmart too. The schools here provide pretty much everything as far as paper, folders, and all that stuff goes, but I like to stock up because they might not have enough with budget cuts, or we just might need something like that at home, and I'd rather stock up now when things are ten cents to a dollar than pay full price later.
Other than school supplies, we've purchased a few items of clothing. I pick things up on clearance and put them away all the time, but you know part of back to school shopping is the fun of picking up some new outfits. I'm still not done, I need to find a good deal on some jeans for the girls, and some shoes. Is it just me or do they go through shoes quick at this age?!
As a blogger, sometimes I get to be "in the know" on great companies and the awesome sales they're having. ..and like I said, I do love a good sale. Add in a coupon? I may just have heart palpitations! Okay, not really, but it definitely piques my interest! I was just informed that Famous Footwear has a new coupon for 15% off (or 20% off if you're a Rewards member, or sign up to be one! Um, yes please!)...and that is not all! They're also having a BOGO (buy one get one half off) sale! Awesome! Maybe I'll even spring for a pair of shoes for myself (at least mine last more than a couple months before I grow out of them, haha!)
Be sure to print the BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon! It's valid in stores only between 8/2 and 8/18!
