Right now is my favorite time of year to shop for kids clothes. Hopefully, you too have recovered from the big Christmas spending and can take advantage of the best deals of the year in kid’s clearance clothing. I have been bargain hunting this time of year since my oldest was a baby, and my husband and I were in desperate need of finding the very lowest prices on clothes since we were college students. I was also self-conscious about being a young mom and worried that people would think we weren’t good parents if he was in stained garage sale clothes. I checked through the clearance rack anytime I saw one and after a few years I noticed that late February always seemed to have the deepest discounts on the largest amount of clothing. I like to do my ‘back-to-school’ shopping for next year right now. Stores stock up big for the Christmas season and now is the time they absolutely must clear things out to make room for the spring and summer clothes. A couple of my favorite stores to shop right now are Gymboree and Crazy 8. I have become an affiliate due to my longtime love for these stores, so there are affiliate links in this post for which I may be compensated. You may miss out on finding the coordinating pieces for a complete outfit at Gymboree, but you may also find that hair bow or pair of tights from a collection you purchased from during the Christmas season and complete an outfit you already have at a great bargain!
For the very tightest of budgets, Crazy 8 is the place to be. Sometimes they have many items for just $2.88!

I aim to hone the craft of giving advice without pretending to have this whole mom thing figured out. I am Christian, but not the really nice kind that is good at it. I am also conservative, but I promise not to be in your face with political agendas very often. I like to infuse humor into my writing, so don't freak out if you are offended or appalled by what you read here. There is a very fine line between serious advice and sarcastic hyperbole.
