I bought them a size bigger than what he was wearing in June, thinking they would last him the whole summer. Nope. They went from too big to too small in the space of a MONTH. They are so small in fact, that he cries if I try to shove his foot into them. Ugh.
So, I went in search of new shoes for Ty, yet again. Now, if you know me at all, you know that I LOVE a bargain. In fact, I won't buy anything unless it's on sale. I went to the Children's Place (which happens to be my favorite store!) and found these shoes, in Ty's size, for $1.99. I know they aren't near as cute as his slip-ons, but hey, for that price, they will just have to do!
It's kind of interesting really, that I love sales so much. In my family, my dad did the grocery shopping. Each Saturday, after hitting up 3 or 4 different grocery stores to get all the best deals, he would come home and show off his great bargains. It was a game, actually. He would make us guess how much he paid for each item, Price Is Right style. We all thought it was kind of annoying as kids, but the funny thing is, I am so that way now!!
Speaking of bargains, Target is the place to go right now. I was there yesterday, and they had tons of baby stuff on clearance. They had five packs of onesies for $2, two hooded towels for $1.50, and shoes for $2.50. I stocked up, because we are probably not done having kids yet, and even if we were, that makes for great, cheap baby shower gifts.
Does anyone else out there love a good bargain? What great deals have you found lately?
