  • I like kohls, american eagle, aeropostal, JC penney. Really just depends on what you are looking for. Target and Maurices are good too.

  • i like brand name clothing, but cant afford them, so i go to marshall, tjmaxx and burlington coat factory for brand name clothing. so much cheaper than macys or lord and taylor. I even saw a pair of uggs at tjmaxx for $70 for the tall ones.

  • Old Navy has coupons on their website; I only shop there when I have at least 10 off 50.
    Filene's Basement often has 20% off coupons.
    Loehmann's always has great deals.

  • Tke baby with you. That's what I do. I have 5 kids and manage to bring them. I wish that it was only one. If I go when they are in school then I only have one.
    Aero is having a jeans sale,
    Old Navy is haveing a sale
    Gap is marking things down
    That's all I know of right now.

  • I love Kohl's! I watch the sales and also get coupons since I have a Kohl's charge. This week I got my sons their fall jeans, which were $24 regular price, on sale for $12, with 30% off and 20% cash back, so it worked out to $6.72 a pair. Their Sonoma brand jeans always fit the kids perfectly and have adjustable waists. The Jumping Beans shirts are super cute and hold up really well, too. They work out to $3.53 a shirt after discounts. I also end up getting most of my clothes there because I can always get fit in their Apt 9 dresses and a few of their other brands.

  • Most of my clothes I buy from my favorite store online. I look for coupon codes, deferred billing, free (or reduced) shipping codes. Whatever I do not like or does not fit I send back. Sometimes I buy things from the mall or department stores, and when I see good sales going on I will take the kids with me.

  • I do most of my shopping online because I don't have to worry about finding a babysitter but also I can take my time shopping and not have to worry about my son getting bored.
