How I Save Money- Kids Clothes Edition

Today I thought I would focus on how I save money shopping for kids clothes.  I love shopping for clothes, but I don't like full price. I actually think I have something called fullpriceitis.
the anxiety and hives that come along with buying something for full price. 

I seriously cannot shop full price, it gives me anxiety because I know it will be cheaper. So here are the ways I save money on my kids clothes.

1- Use Ebates
I LOVE Ebates! Like seriously LOVE it! It is a cash back site that give you $$$ back when you shop online. You see that total?! I have earned over $250 just by doing shopping I would normally do. 

How does it work? Stores like Gymboree, Target and Sears (just to name a few) pay Ebates a commission for bringing shoppers to their sites, then Ebates shares that with the shopper. So Gymboree gives Ebates 2% and they share that with you 50/50 so you would get 1% cash back! Click here to sign up for Ebates and you can get a $10 cash bonus after you make your first $25 purchase (within 90 days)!

2- Use Coupons
My love for coupons and discount is real, I love deals and saving money. Kids clothes are no exception. To get coupons sign up for emails. Some of my favorites are

Gymboree (comment with your email and I will send you a 25% off coupon that doesn't expire for 3 weeks)

Tons of these companies offer you a 20% coupon (or more) when you sign up for their email list, and then you can save it for a sale. 

3- Stock Up
Right now as we are at the end of summer so all the summer clothes are at alarmingly low prices. Stock up now for next summer. You can save up to 90% at some places on summer clothes right now!

4- Wait
There will be a better deal,sometimes even waiting until the weekend means more deals and extra savings. Also waiting for holiday weekends to shop is an awesome idea. Stores are usually having blow-out prices around this time.

5- Use Gift Cards
I use the gift card app Raise. They have discounts on gift cards, and you can save an additional $5 off with my code MBARNES1 and right now (hurry it WILL expire) you can save an additional $10 with the promo code "WELCOME10"! 

For example, I scored a $25 Old Navy gift card for just $9! That's a 64% savings! Hello awesome! Combine that with the tips above and save BIG! Click here to get started on Raise. 

*If you don't see the $5 come off for the referral code, go to settings, then click "claim referral" and enter code there. 

Oldie But Goodie

It's been awhile I know but today I thought I would share some popular past posts.

Happy Fri-yay!!!

Back to School with Carters (Sponsored)

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for Carter’s. I received a complimentary gift card to facilitate my review and thank me for my participation.

School has already started for us, and even though the girls wear uniforms to school we still go back to school clothes shopping, because they need clothes after school and on weekends. There are lots of places to shop for kids clothes, but Carters is one of my favorites their clothes are cute, colorful and fresh. They also have great quality clothes for an awesome price and as an added bonus they now have up to size 8 clothes and size 3Y shoes! I am so happy about that, because now I can keep dressing my oldest in their cute coordinated collections. 

My husband was off work for a few days this summer so we could have a little vacation, so I decided to go shopping at Carter's...alone! It was glorious to browse around finding the best deals and cutest clothes for my little ones.
Now that Labor Day weekend is here, the entire store is 50% off or more! There is lots of 70% off as well, I love a good bargain so I may have to go back! The doorbuster I am most excited for is the 5 pack onesies for $12, in the chilly Pacific NW these are amazing for layering in the chilly fall weather. 

Not only are the clothes adorable, they are modern and on trend. It's a win-win, your kids can go back to school rockin' stylish outfits, and you don't have to break the bank for their wardrobe. 

Don't those cute pajamas just make you feel happy? I am obsessed with the Carters 4 pack pajamas, I kind of want all the patterns for the kids, they are so adorable! These owl one are my favorite, it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside that Carter's carries size 8. Now I can keep my girls matching for another year! I love matching their outfits. 

Peep that cute, colorful coordination on those outfits, love it! 

You can check out the sales and get a coupon over on their website,

Back To School and Soccer Shenanigans

This summer has been a whirlwind. I don't know where the time has gone, do you feel like your summer flew by? School started super early this year, like in August, in all my years in this school district it has NEVER started in August. Also started on a Thursday, which I find odd. Everyone is back to school except the 2 youngest and me (I start later this month), even the hubby is back to school. 

I am officially a soccer mom, the girls started playing soccer this year, I really like it and so do they. This was before her first game, my hubby was trying to get some "action" shots...they don't look staged at all.

This little lady started kindergarten this year, and she was nervous because she had a different teacher then we originally thought.

Soccer practice shenanigans. We are at the field practicing 3 days a week and at games every Saturday, so we are here a lot.

This little one is ecstatic to have her daddy home during the day, her and the baby get him all to themselves for 6 hours and she is in heaven. Of course school just started, so as he needs to study more we won't be able to browse Bed Bath and Beyond at 10 AM on a Wednesday but for now we will take it!
