One of my favorite places to shop is The Children's Place. We don't have one anywhere near us so I shop online...and that is just fine by me. Truth be told, I get much better deals online than I ever have in one of their stores. Their clothing lines are very easy to mix and match and they have a nice selection of solid pieces along with usually funky prints that feature hearts, flowers and butterflies. As for shipping, they just charge a flat rate of $5 per order. Can't beat that...that's less than I would pay in gas money to head out of town to the big stores.
Since Ella has been growing like a weed, she needed some new dresses, shirts, hoodies and pants. I managed to buy all of this for her:
1 hoodie, 2 dresses, 3 t-shirts, 1 halter top & 2 pairs of yoga pants
The regular retail of these items was $106. Since all of these items were on sale AND I had a 15% coupon that they sent me in the mail, I only paid $49.24 plus tax and shipping.
Although Lucie has Ella's hand-me-downs, some aren't in the greatest shape...plus I couldn't resist the chance to buy them matching clothes. So, I got this for her:
1 pair of jeans, 1 pair of yoga pants, 2 t-shirts and 2 tunic tops
The regular retail of these items was $63.50. These items were on sale as well AND I had the 15% off so I only paid $24.60 plus tax and shipping.
I got a $189 purchase (with tax and shipping) for only $85. Not a bad deal. However, I just checked their website today and some of the items I purchased are even cheaper today! Oh well.
One other tiny perk was that I am getting 2% of the purchase back because I linked to The Children's Place website through Ebates. If you shop online, I suggest joining Ebates (free membership), linking to stores through their website for % back or coupons AND checking RetailMeNot for possible coupon codes.
