I found a huge collection of Gerber 2-pack pajama sets at Target yesterday marked down from $10.99 to $2.76 each. I bought the boys all matching pj's and a couple extras for gifts. There are lots of kid's clothes on clearance now so it's a good time to buy ahead. These are in season, but I often buy out of season to save money. This fall, I will buy t-shirts and shorts for my oldest for next summer in the next size up. The younger boys will wear mostly hand- me-downs.
I also saved a lot of money with coupons yesterday. I always print the Target online coupons before heading to Target. I stack Target coupons with manufacturers coupons and save even more by using 2 coupons for one item. I saved $7.25 using Target coupons and $11.88 using manufacturer's coupons (many of these stacked to use on the same item) bringing my total coupon savings to $19.13. I only bought items that we needed and use on a regular basis. You have to be mindful when you start couponing to only buy things you need. Don't buy it just because you have a coupon (unless it's free of course).
