My first stop is always the VF or Vanity Fair Outlet. They carry name brand clothes at a fraction of the cost. I was able to find all of my son's school jeans for $7 a pair and I found shorts for my daughter for $3 a piece! Wow, talk about deals! I spent $60 and walked away with a weeks worth of bottoms for each child!
Next on my list was shoes. There are plenty of shoe stores to shop from at Gainesville Outlet Shops. We stopped by Reebok and found shoes for each child for $35! The kids were happy with the styles and I was happy with the price. That was a bargain for everyone! So we have bottoms and shoes for less than $100 for 2 kids! We are staying on track with our budget and we are off to find tops!
We stopped by Gap Outlet and found a few shirts for my son. We spent $50 and got 3 really cool shirts for him. I found 2 shirts for my daughter here too and that made us all happy!
Our last stop of the day is always Burkes Outlet. Why? Because we always find our best deals here. I love to shop their 90% off rack. I always stock up for the next season by shopping for the deepest discounts. This takes time to sort through all of the items but I found a treasure load of bargains. I picked up 5 shirts for my son for winter, 6 shirts for my daughter for winter also and 2 shirts for me! Our total was $31 and I felt like a tired but smart momma!
I love shopping at Outlet Stores. I feel like I can shop for current styles and still get the most for my money.
