Shopping Off-Season for Children’s Clothing

by T Akery | December 8th, 2011 | Kids' Shopping

It is the middle of winter, and the sales are on. The biggest sales on children’s clothing are on summer items. Skip the jackets, long sleeves, and sweat pants. Instead, head straight for the summer discounted items of swimming suits, shorts, and short sleeve shirts. The reason for the discounted prices is to clear the shelves for more winter items.

Picking out the right size is a little more difficult, as kids are growing. This means that when you look at summer items, your children will probably have gone through at least one growth spurt. You want to buy a size bigger than what they are now.

Another thing you want to look for in these summer discounts is the ability to adjust the waist size. This is especially important in pants, skirts, and shorts. This will make the summer clothing more usable for a longer period of time and save on belts.

Stores are setting up deals at this time of year as well. Many are offering a certain amount off if you spend a certain amount. Don’t forget to bring coupons with you when you are looking at the discounts. They can help stretch your clothing budget a little more. Don’t forget to check out printed store coupons. Check your store’s coupon policy to see if these can be used in conjunction with each other.

Check online for deeply discounted summer wear. The big thing about this is to make sure to compare prices to make certain that you are really getting a deal. Sometimes, the online prices aren’t exactly the same as what is shown in the store. Get free shipping offered by some stores by having the clothes shipped directly to the store.

The off-season is a great time to shop for deals. Check out the marked down summer items. It will take a little planning ahead to get what you need. Don’t forget to throw in those holiday coupons for extra savings. Think ahead for your summer clothing.
