I went to the Gap outlet a few weeks ago and got some amazing deals. Ringer tees for Zachary for like 2 bucks a piece. Long skinny shorts for me for only $6 and a darling eyelet top for $20. Zachary and Emily are the only two that I am going to focus on buying for. Payton has enough clothes to wear something new every day the entire summer! The sad part is that I'm not even kidding! I must have gone crazy when Emily was in a 4/5!
I haven't even been thrifting in forever. Way too busy but I really do need to make time to go cuz I can't afford to keep buying Zachary clothes every 2mo!

I'm just about done with the kids - finally! Got Ally 6 more tops and a cute little Tinkerbell shorts outfit. I already got her 2 other outfit and she has tons of really adorable shorts that were given to us. All told, she must have at least 15 complete outfits, not including the 2 new church outfits (sundresses). Also got her 3 new summer pj's, although I don't know why I bothered - she end up taking them off during the night! She also got 2 new packs of socks and 1 of undies that I found on clearance - I put them away for school for next year. Still need to get her some sandals - all she has so far is a pair of pink flip flops. Oh, and she has 2 new bathing suits, too.

Drew is getting harder and harder to buy for. He's half in the boys dept and half in the men's dept. Got him 4 or 5 pair of shorts, 6 solid colored t-shirts (it's what he asked for), 2 polo style striped shirts and 1 t-shirt with a saying on it ("Getting in trouble is what I do best!"). Bought him some darned expensive sandals last week ($60), but man are they comfy! He still needs new sneakers, 1 or 2 swimsuits, and a few more pair of shorts.

Believe it or not, there is a Walmart brand - NoBo (No Boundaries) - that is very popular with the guys here. At least, the pants/shorts are popular. They are all frayed looking along the seams and edges. Personally, I think they look like something you have washed about a million times. But it's the only thing Drew has asked for, so I guess I'll get him some. They run between $10 and $20, so not very expensive at all.

Got tons of stuff for sammy at Kohls and at garage sales. As for Jonathan, he really needs some jean shorts, but has lots of tees and polos and dress clothes.

Cara has a lot of handmedowns. Hopefully, they'll last all summer. She's growing like a weed! Kate can still wear last summer's clothes. She's so tiny.

I haven't really started either, I have picked up a few things when they caught my eye. The boys are still wearing last years shorts, too skinny, those boys... I'm sure I'll get to shopping within the next few weeks because I don't want to do it when they're out for summer!

I have a good amount of things, but not a ton. I did get some things from Gymbo, GAP and Kohl's. I'll have to check out Crazy8's.

I did tons of summer shopping back when I got my tax return. I really went overboard on quantitiy for Gracie BUT I shopped at Gabriel Brothers and on ebay so I didn't spend a fortune. Most of her summer wardrobe is in CachCach, BeetleJuice, Mad Sky (Love it!), Gymbo, and Baby Gap.
We had to get Haley outfits with Bermuda shorts because of the dress code at school but we also found her a few cute short pairs at GW.
Zach was simple... shorts and t's ... we picked up a few at Gabe's but most came from GW.
I also bought tons for myself but have since gained weight... I've gone up 2 sizes since I quit smoking.
