    libbyk - I am so impressed that your son's clothes lasted so long. My youngest wears out her clothes so quickly and I am always bewildered at how she does it! Good luck and let us know if you find any awesome deals. I need to take mine school shopping next week,

    Thank You FAYE for the Swagcode -
    5 SB nice .

    Faye - I have had to shop for shorts, underwear, socks, and shoes, but almost everything else I got from Kids Exchange or WakeCountyFreecycle. I am very thankful that I haven't had to pay retail very often. I paid $5 a pair for shorts at KMart and my son was able to wear the last set I got for him for 3 years. :-) And, I was able to pass them down to someone afterwards...

    Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I'm looking forward to a frugal and fruitful shopping trip.

    Walmart's email ad has polo shirts and t-shirts for under $4 each ( at least 50% off ) .
    Belk and JC Penny are possible too -
    I know Belk is having a sale - Penny's probably is too

    smolder13 - that is bizarre, Let me know what response you get.

    libbyk - That is amazing that you have not had to school clothes shop for your son in the last 15 years. You have saved soooo much money!!!! Whoever was passing down all those clothes to you is awesome. :-)

    I just got an e-mail from Kmart indicating this: "$10 apparel essentials including kids jeans, hoodies and footwear" - I assume they also have shirts in that range, although not sure. Also not sure if Juniors/teen clothes are included.

    You may want to try Plato's Closet used clothes. They have a ton of stuff at the one in Cary. TJ Maxx and Ross clothing stores are pretty cheap although not sure of their men's selection since I have teen girls.

    Before you shop online, make sure you go to to see if there is a coupon code available.

    If you go to Target, look for the red clearance tags & check Cartwheel & the printable coupons for any discounts.

    Kohl's has a big clearance sale going on.

    Burlington Coat Factory is a good place as well.

    Anyone know what's in the crate from Lowe's this week?

    Did anyone get the Kohls email today and got higher than 15% coupon? If so and you aren't going to use it, can you forward it to me at
