WFMW (bargain shopping tips)
It's time to post yet another WFMW tip.
I can’t remember which parenting magazine I saw this article in (I cut it out some time ago), but these bargain tips come from Kimberly Danger, author of 1000 Best Baby Bargains.
Shop at Gap and Old Navy midweek, when items usually go on sale. Their final markdowns end in “.97,” so if the price tag reads “.99,” you know the item will go lower.
Some Targets mark down kids’ clothes on Mondays and start with 30% off. (Wait two weeks and those clothes will be half price).
For the best prices at The Children’s Place, visit its online outlet (go to childrensplace.com and click on Shop Outlet), where clearance prices go as low as $3.99.
Sign up at Gymboree mailing list online and have a chance to earn and redeem Gymbucks for deeper discounts.
Here’s a tip that I learned from a warehouse worker at Toys R Us.:
Start watching the sales at Toys R Us as they should have massive clearances in August/September. Don’t just rely on the flyer that comes in the paper, go in and look for great bargains!
These bargain shopping tips for me, maybe they'll work for you. To see what works for others, be sure to check out the other links at Shannon's, the creator of Works-For-Me Wednesday!
