Yes, you read that right....
I always L O V E D back to school shopping, so imagine my surprise when my children complained about HAVING to go. They are boys so that explains it. Now I dread having to take them. Imagine last year...three boys in the Kohls boys changing room, me trying to adjust the waistband on my extra slim kids pants and help my (just turned) 3 year old try stuff on from outside the dressing room... AAHHH. I cringe just thinking of that bad, bad day.
I had to hit the mall on Friday. I was trying hard to avoid the boys section of Macy's, but I was drawn in by the "additional 30% off" signs that were topped by "extra 20% off when you use your Macy's card" sign. I should have looked in the mirror and saw SUCKER printed right across my forehead. I started in the big boys section and started loading up. The sales clerk came to relieve me of my pile several times. An hour later, I was done back to school shopping.
I did find remarkable deals that I will store in their closets until August 14th when they head back to school. Then in September, when it starts getting chillier, I can torture them with a trip to the store for jeans.
