Fashion for Kids on a Budget

As you know, we're on a really tight budget right now, so we don't often have money to spend on clothes.  Whenever the boys get extra cash for their birthdays or Christmas, I always put aside some of it for picking up essentials like jeans, and I love to go to Old Navy.  They have incredible sales and I'm a huge fan of their fun holiday shirts.  In the past my boys have sported their Halloween, St. Patrick's Day, Christmas and Valentines Day shirts. 

Now through February 20th Old Navy is having their Kids & Baby Sale - up to 40% off certain styles.  I printed off a $10 off $50 coupon from the Old Navy website, and then the boys and I went to the Old Navy store at Valley View Mall in Roanoke. 

There was such an excellent selection that we had trouble choosing what to buy.  I picked up two pairs of jeans that were on sale for $10 each in the next size up for Pierce.  Last year during Old Navy's February sale I picked up several pairs of jeans for Pierce, and they fit his skinny frame so well with their adjustable waists, plus they have held up.  I've been impressed by how there is no fraying around the bottoms and not a single hole in the knees.  A year later!  Once I had the jeans picked out, we got around to the fun part - shirts!
Pierce got the two pairs of jeans, a long sleeved Valentines shirt, an astronaut shirt (his choice), a St. Patrick's Day shirt, and a Star Wars Angry Birds shirt (his choice).  For the twins, I picked out coordinating blue and red striped shirts, #4 short sleeved striped shirts (perfect for their fourth birthday this summer), and glow in the dark dinosaur shirts (their choice - they are quite fascinated by dinosaurs lately). 
 One thing I love about Old Navy is they have shirts in all the latest trends but they are reasonably priced.  Plus, their shirts are made from such soft material - this is particularly important for Cort's sensitive, eczema-prone skin.
Pierce looks like a little heartthrob in his new jeans and St. Patrick's Day shirt, doesn't he?  He is so excited to wear his new clothes to school.  And I'm thrilled that we got all of these clothes for just $75 (including my coupon)!

What about you, readers?  Do you have a favorite item of clothing you've bought from Old Navy?

I love being able to go online and print out a store's coupons to take shopping with me. The boys are looking great by the way!

Pierce does look like a fashion model for jeans and shirts. So cute.

I like their clothes. Old Navy has some great deals and cool style!

I still shop some at Gymboree. I pretty much only shop there for Mica, so I can hand down whatever I buy to Isaak.

Target isn't too bad as well.

I like Crazy 8 now that we have one.

I bought for next year at Children's Place. Usually I dislike their boy's selection. I don't mind their baby stuff.

It's our go-to store for boy clothes, too!

They look so cute! I do love Old Navy and have several favorite items from there. The jeans I wear the most are from Old Navy and I have some cardigans and sweaters from there that I really like.

Valerie said...

I love Old Navy! I've gotten many things there for both Amy and me.

Pierce is getting so tall! All three of your little guys are such cuties!!

Ginny said...

They ARE a really nice store, the nearest one to here is in Charlottesville. I used to shop there quite a bit, and Anne Marie usually dons Old Navy quite a bit. I LOVE all three pictures of the boys!

My Journey With Candida said...

I love to go when they are having their clearance sales. I usually load up then.

Madge Bloom said...

Old Navy was out of my budget when my kids were little (25 something years ago)... but your boys look great!

Debbie said...

ooohhhh those boys look so handsome!

The boys look adorable in their new duds. I don't shop at Old Navy but some of my kids buy their stuff from there. Looks like some great bargains.

Linda said...

They look so cute in their shirts! I haven't been to Old Navy in many years. We don't have one here.

Slamdunk said...

Nice saving Lisa.

I don't and we have to drive a ways to an Old Navy, but the Mrs. does enjoy the deals there; especially for older boy's clothes.

Grandma Bonnie said...

They look great in their dinosaur shirts. Those jeans do fit Pierce well. I do not shop often at Old Navy. Probably because the nearest store is a 45 minute drive. I hope you had a great weekend.

SweetMarie said...

Your boys are adorable in these photos.:) When my son was young we did shop at Old Navy a lot. They always had such fun and nice clothes for great prices. My favorite boots came from Old Navy.:)

Laura @ Green Legacy Farm said...

Your boys are adorable!! Yup, I love me some Old Navy! We also have a huge consignment sale here that I participate in twice a year. So whatever I earn I put back into kids' clothes.

Sandy said...

I love bargain shopping. I buy almost all my jeans from GAP, which own Old Navy or visa versa. I have long legs (36" inseam) and it is hard to find long jeans and GAP sells stuff online only for tall women. They aren't cheap but at least they are long enough!

Your boys are so handsome! We love old Navy and I always use their online coupons. Love old navy.
