I just spent 89 bucks on winter boots...
I also hit up all the local stores and got all the 2t summer stuff on clearance I could find ( that was good quality) for ds. I don't have hand me downs for him as the only boy. He scored 7 pairs of very nice shorts and 2 tee shirts and 8 collared polos in various colors and styles all for 49 bucks! My girls also got 4 pairs of shorts each for about 65 dollars. I think I did pretty good. They got what they needed for next summer and for winter. Grandma got ds his winter boots. They are awesome and match the coat I found last year on clearance for 10 bucks ;).
Oh and I also scored some clearance and half off clothes for our new princess at jc Penney and 5 pairs of Gymboree and Carter's jeans for 5 dollars at a yard sale. They look brand new!
Who else is hitting up the sales and stocking ahead for the kiddies?
