Buying Clothes in the Off Season

One way to save money on clothes, is to buy off season. If your favorite store is having a huge end-of-the-season sale, take advantage of it. You'll have to estimate your child's size for the next year though. If you have a big family like me, WRITE IT DOWN! You won't be saving much money if you buy the wrong sizes! (Though with seven children, it will fit someone eventually .)

Same goes with garage and yard sales. Even though you'll most likely be hitting the garage sales in the summer, don't forget to pick up winter coats and snow boots!

Old Schoolhouse Sale

I'm not familiar with this product, but it's 50% off so I figured I should pass it on. If you know about it and it's on your "I need to buy" list then now may be the time to buy it.

This Old Schoolhouse is having a great deal on the When I Grow Up, I Want to Be series. It's an interactive way to help guide the kids to better understand the world around them and learn about the many professiosn that people are involved in and love.

The cool thing about the series is that it covers everything from skills needed, how much money you can expect to make and what really goes on each day. It looks really cool and my daughter is looking forward to starting it.

The special offer (lasts for the month of June) and is half price for the entire series. Anyway, here's the link:

And free shipping too!
