Red Racks $0.50 cent sunday is still in session-sort of. They’ve changed their “format” somewhat-now the special tag that is on sale is in one easy to locate area in the women’s clothing section, spanning 2 aisles on either side. They are calling it the “Last Chance” section.
Also, they aren’t really featuring a specific color tag anymore. What they have done, instead, is to move everything on sale to this “Last chance” aisle, and mark those items down for $1 for the week, and then $0.50 on sundays. But they still have the “half off” and “25% off” tags available, so if you find those for $1 or less than you can still benefit from a good deal.
I don’t really like the change, but I did get there early enough to take advantage of it, and I was relieved that I didn’t have to walk through aisles and aisles of clothing in my third trimester.
Although I did feel sorry for the stragglers-by 11am all the good stuff was taken. Sorry folks! You’re gonna have to have to arrive early and skip out on church to benefit from this one!
The Yellow tags were “half off,” so I intentionally targeted the $0.98 yellow tags and still found myself with a bargain.
With 19 items at $0.49, and 6 items in the last chance aisle for $0.50, I found myself leaving with 25 articles of very nice clothing for a under $13. And I even managed to score a few girly items that weren’t pink! Yay for Gray!
Since I now have a nearly complete 18-2T wardrobe (with the exception of pajamas, jackets, and coats), I should probably really stop. I just don’t want to go shopping for any clothes at all until monkey baby is walking on her own, and can obey commands. I am loathe to take three children out, shopping for clothes, with a baby in tow.
So . . . somewhere between 2-3 years old I will need to go out again. But that is my excuse for justifying the additional purchases for boys clothing-I have nearly everything I need in that department as well, for the next 2-3 years (except for pajamas).
And yes, I also started a “Future’s Bin” for monkey baby, with a clothing sizes up to size 8 (Tiger boy found a $0.50 cent jacket in the 7/8 size and really wanted the baby to have it). But since I don’t need to fill all those bins right now (especially with the child in question still in utero), I really, really should stop!
I think I’m addicted.
But in the back of my mind I have this nagging voice telling me that I need pajamas, jackets, and coats. Ugh, pregnancy really makes one nuts!
