had been exceptionally lucky getting lots of clothes off my cousin for my boys
(her son must only wear them for 5 minutes as they are always immaculate when
they are passed on to us!), which had saved us a small fortune, but our
supplies have dried up now as they do not visit as often! Sigh.
it was time to scour the Internet, I am all for shopping local but lets just
say the shops in ruralville (in other words the sticks where I live!) are severely
limited! If I stuck to the main clothes
shop here, my boys would be dressed exactly the same as most of the children in
town (all mini clones of each other!).
Luckily I found a selection of kids clothes from Polarn O. Pyret. In a way its
nice to actually do some shopping for them as its great getting bits and bobs
off family, but on occasion its lovely to pick out items I think they might
like, even if it means opening my wallet (and dusting out the cobwebs!).
There were some lovely bits that caught my eye and fortunately they look
like a site with offers on (20% of all new coats at the moment), as I am always hopeful of saving money when raising kids. Some items were very colourful
and a little more unique than normal. I
have fallen for the Jelly Monsters Beanie, just a real pity it only comes in
children sizes. A nice bright hat would
help cheer away those winter blues…
What happened to the popularity of the simple balaclava when I was a child, it was all the rage! Maybe I should also invest in a couple of them, to see if they can make a come back…
With the bitter cold wind forget the cheeky Jelly Monsters maybe we really need this! I wonder if I can get them to wear it in the house and then save more money not needing the heating on!
