My children are gearing up to go back to school. Even though they have about a month left before school starts, it’s never too early to take advantage of great back to school sales and discounts. When you live on a tight budget every little bit helps.
We don’t buy entire new wardrobes for our kids. I have to admit that we used to do that. At one point we’d buy our kids 10-12 new outfits for going back to school. Then we realized it was a silly thing to do because they usually end up wearing a lot of the clothing they already had. Not only that, kids grow so quickly that they would often outgrow things before they had a chance to wear them.
Shoes were always a huge issue. My kids would outgrow shoes very quickly. My daughter has stopped growing and has worn the same size shoe for years. My son is still growing taller, but his feet size seems to be staying around the same too. In fact he’s already bugging me about getting him new sneakers.
One great option to shop for back to school wear is Famous Footwear. They carry hundreds of brand name shoes in thousands of different styles at a great price. They even have the cool styles that kids want at a price parents can afford.
Famous Footwear prides it’s self on helping customers get in and out quickly and not feel overwhelmed by the experience. They understand that we all lead busy lives and don’t have time to hunt down the shoes in the style an size that we want.
Famous Footwear is offering 15% off (or 20% off for Rewards members and those who sign up to become a Rewards member). They are also offering Buy One, Get One Half Off (BOGO).
If you are not already a Rewards member you can sign up for the FREE program. With the Rewards program you earn 1 point for every $1 you spend in-store or online. You accumulate points with each purchase which you can use to earn certificates up to $100 a year. The program also offers other discounts and perks. You even get a discount just for signing up.
Every little bit counts. With two kids to shop for I like that I can get half off one pair of shoes when I purchase another pair of shoes. We usually end up buying the kids 1-2 pairs of shoes each for back to school time. The 15% – 20% off helps our budget too.
