I fully admit that I’m a recovering shopaholic. As a teenager, I worked at the mall and on my days off I would spent my little paycheques on shoes, and clothes, and makeup! As I got older and my paycheques got bigger, my shopping excursions became a thing of legends! Leather bags, designer shoes – I would buy almost anything I desired. Of course, after years of spending excessively, it became time to buckle down and save!
I suppose that’s part of growing up, right? Making budgets and sticking to them? But saving your money and seeing your bank account numbers going up is an awesome feeling – and month after month, we reassess our budget to make sure we’re meeting all of our needs – and with growing kids, that means a ton of clothing and shoe purchases!
That’s why I’m so excited to share the Best Dressed for Less event at the Coquitlam Centre! It starts January 9th – 18th, and is an amazing time to purchase anything you might need! I took advantage of the exciting deals to purchase some adorable kids clothes!
There’s a ton of chic and fun children’s fashions found at Coquitlam Centre. For under $150, I got three complete outfits for my kids plus more! The Children’s Place has sales up to 75% off, and I scored a couple of rad tees for my kids, plus some essentials, like socks and underwear. H&M also had lots of essentials for sale, like basic tees and undies, and I also scored a pair of dark skinnies for my tween girl for under $10!
Gymboree has awesome sales as well, and I couldn’t resist picking up this on trend plaid button-down for my toddler! A stop at Old Navy was a must, picking up more socks and undershirts, plus these beige skinny jeans for my toddler as well! And what trip at the Coquitlam Centre isn’t complete without heading into Gap Kids? I scored these rocking jeans for my tween for $9.99, and the sweater was 65% off the original price!
Walking out of the Coquitlam Centre, I felt so lucky to have found so many killer deals that I almost skipped back to my car with the shopping bags swinging in my hands! I promise, I didn’t actually do it, but I wanted to – and you would have, too! My two stylish kids are definitely making the Best Dressed list for LESS!
