The tags tell the story.
Way to pose, little model man!
Okay, so it's not the super-cheap clothes from Goodwill like I usually do for fall, but I haven't been able to find much at Goodwill lately, so I hit Ross today instead since my little guy was in serious need of some non-high-water pants, long-sleeve shirts, and a fall jacket. I thought I did pretty good dressing him from head to toe in $98 worth of Polo for $25. I got him the jeans ($7.49), the shirt (a faux layered look for $5.99), and a fleece jacket ($10.99).
Honestly, I am kind of a fashion fan. I like to look good, and I like my kids to look good, and sometimes it's nice to have some brand-name clothes that aren't secondhand. Not that that stuff matters all that much, but if I can find a deal on Polo that isn't that much more than the same generic style at Wal-Mart, then why not buy it? And often, the quality is higher, so it ends up being a better deal.
I plan to do lots more Goodwill shopping in the next few weeks for the kids' wardrobes, so check back for more good buys...
