SHOP TILL I DROP

I'm totally not a "shopper." I know I've mentioned before that I will only go to the mall if there is a reason that I absolutely need to go. Actually, I blame this on my older sister. I would have to go shopping with her when we were younger, and I kid you not, one time we were at the mall for eight hours! When I tried to rush her to go, she told me I could take the bus home. Oooookay!

Well, I've been under the weather the last couple of days, but I promised my kids I would take them to the mall to get new clothes. Originally it was supposed to just be my oldest daughter & I, but I figured if I'm buying clothes for everyone, they can help carry the bags!

So, off I went with four of my chitlins. My oldest son decided to stay home (I think he's the smart one). I let them know exactly what stores we were going to, so this way, it eliminates all the questions later about, "Where are we going now?" They knew I was totally feeling "blah", so they didn't even argue. It all worked out since all the stores we had to go to were all by each other!

First stop, Old Navy. Oh yah! I can get 99% of their clothes there! So, a couple of jeans here, few tops there, some boxers there, blah, blah, blah, and we were outie! But, everything I got there were just for my three youngest, so I wasn't even done yet.*

Here they are waiting patiently for Miranda to try on some jeans.

They had an awesome sale, so I made out like a bandit! There's even a pair of shoes and another outfit not pictured here because Veronica was putting them on. It's hard to tell, but those are boys jeans in the upper left hand side, and on the top right are the cutest capri leggings. A couple of them have a double ruffle. Love those!

Second stop, the Vans store. I love the sales they have there! Buy one, get the other half off (well, except the ones my oldest daughter picked out).

We're all just waiting on Miranda.

Now, let me just say, this was the best deal of the day! 7 pairs of shoes, and 4 pairs of socks for $237!! Three of them were 1/2 off! Oh, and FYI, I DO NOT put shoes on my bed. These are all new, clean pairs!

Finally, we ended the day at Game Stop! I would have taken pictures there, but by then, I was so ready to go! All in all, it was a good day, but someone, please hand me the Tylenol!

**And while I was writing this post, little did I know I'd be returning to the mall later that night!

That is a great deal you got on shoes...gee, I never thought about how much it must cost to clothe all those younguns. But you did get a great deal on shoes and socks! :)

Daphine said...

Dang girl! You did get some GREAT deals! Can not believe that price on the shoes, though! VANS are not exactly cheap!

Hope you're feeling completely better by the time you read my comment!

Bless you friend!

Have a great weekend!

Love the shoes:)

jen@odbt said...

Wow - you hit the mother load. Good for you. I wish we could be at the mall today. Shopping sounds so much better than shoveling snow.

Stacy said...

That is a great deal on those shoes!! We don't have a Vans near us though:(

mother goose said...

TOTAL SCORE!!!

Cathy said...

So glad there is someone else that doesn't enjoy all day shopping at the mall, window shopping etc. My Mom and grandma think it's just the perfect way to spend the day, even if they have nothing in particular to buy. I would much rather curl up with a book or take a nap! than mindlessly roam through a shopping mall without a purpose. Glad you found some great bargains. Old Navy is a definite winner out our house too!

Leslie said...

You are quite the bargain shopper! How did you get them to be patient? I guess when everyone is getting new stuff... Good work!

The imPerfect Housewife said...

Oh I feel your pain just reading that! I'm not a mall shopper either. When the kids were old enough, I added them onto our credit cards so they could just go and I wouldn't have to be there. You sure did get some great deals though - can't beat that!!! Way to go ~ ♥

Sara said...

I know why you don't like to shop... cause you take all the kids with you! Try it by yourself, it's a whole nother world!!! :0)

mama's smitten said...

That's a whole lot of shopping! FUN!

Mommy, I'm Home said...

I can't stand shopping either, which is why I mostly do it online now. The shipping cost is well worth my sanity...

Lorrie said...

Wow what great deals! Hope you're feeling better.

Lauren said...

Old Navy is the BEST!! I like Vans too ... thinking about surprising John with a pair ... especially now that I know about the sales!! :)

McCrakensx4 said...

I am not a fan of shopping or the mall either! You got some great deals though!

Susie said...

Sounds like a full and profitable day:-)

blueviolet said...

Oh my gosh, I can't even imagine trying to corral all of them and get shopping done! You have skills!

Ms Bibi said...

I love Old Navy, but the closest one is 4 hours away.

Great deal on those shoes. Can't beat that.

Great buys! I love Old Navy and Vans store. We don't have a mall that has both though : ( The kids looked like they did great waiting for their older sister to try stuff on.

Alyssa said...

Congratulations to you for a job well done. I have enough trouble shopping with one!

Wow! Awesome deals! I love the shoes that you bought for your kiddos... very cute!
