RUN… don’t walk

RUN…. don’t walk…. TO YOUR NEAREST OLD NAVY.  


guess what started today? yep. the old navy 50% off clearance prices sale! nana, davey and i were on our way to burlington to shop at carters and a much nicer and cleaner ross when i thought "let’s check old navy first." so in bellingham we stopped at old navy and WOWZERS!!! (we never made it down to burlington).


i spent $135 on Davey and Roxy – and it’s almost exclusively clothing for NEXT summer, but check out what i got:


so the photos don’t do it all justice (far too much to photograph) but here’s a breakdown of what i (think) i got….


Davey: for 12-18 months: 1 t-shirt

Davey: for next summer: swim trunks, 5 pairs of shorts, 3 polos, 1 hawaiian shirt and 3 t-shirts

Roxy: for 0-3 months:1 onesie, 2 pairs of pants

Roxy: for next summer: 2 bikinis (one with a matching sunhat), 1 terry cloth swimsuit cover-up, 1 pair pjs, 2 dresses, 2 pairs of capris, 5 tank tops, 7 t-shirts, 6 pairs of shorts, 3 pairs of skorts (and lots of these i turned into various "mix & match" outfits… i didn’t want to buy a whole bunch of random stuff)

Roxy: for 12-18 months: 2 t-shirts, 1 pair of pants and 1 dress


all totaled, it’s 50 items of kids clothing for $135 (including sales tax). WOW!!! that’s a LOT of stuff. and 2 tank tops for myself (a whopping $5 for both of them)! i proceeded to call the majority of my play group/mom friends to let them know about the sale… after all, we decided that’s the rule… call everyone and tell them about the sale if you happen to stumble across it!  :)


as a "heads up:" our old navy didn’t have much by way of pants, jeans or long-sleeved ANYTHING, but at least my kids are going to be well-dressed next summer! i’ll just keep my eyes out for the next big sale at old navy when they have jeans, pants, hoodies and sweatshirts for purchase!


oh yeah, on our way out of the mall, we stopped really quickly in kohl’s and i bought 2 sleepers and 2 long-sleeved onesies for roxy (all size 0-3 months…. the size where she has the least amount of clothing) and 2 maternity tank tops for myself.


now i’m off to try a new recipe for homemade cinnamon rolls (mmmmmmm). and i guess i could get dinner prepped so it’s ready to go in the oven a little later! have a great day!
