I'm really glad I organized myself on Monday's post with a shopping list of fall essentials for Faith. It helps since I really like to shop and I have a tendency to go overboard with the kids. I have been reviewing the sales and found some perfect items over at GAP and Old Navy - see below.
You can get all 12 items from GAP and Old Navy for $100 - that equals a little more than $8 an item - what a steal!!
NORDSTROM ANNIVERSARY SALE
I wasn't too impressed with the selection of Girls clothing in the Nordstrom anniversary sale. I don't know if it's been picked over since there was early access the week before for cardholders, but I was pretty disappointed. I was also hoping they'd have some Boden clothing included. They did have a great selection of footwear included in the sale - I'm really tempted to buy the metallic Vans for Faith. I have not checked out the Women's clothing. I don't really need anything nor do I want to be enticed by the sales pricing.
I also started checking out H&M and they have a lot of great deals with their organic cotton kidswear - buy 2 get 1 free, which includes a number of tees and simple dresses. I'm going to keep browsing the sales and possibly buy a few things from GAP. As I've mentioned plenty of times, I love their quality and on sale, their clothes can't be beat. They are doing an extra 50% off their sale items right now.
The one thing I have pulled the trigger on buying is a backpack. I don't want to wait too late and not be able to get what Faith wants. I had initially wanted to get her the unicorn critter backpack by Pottery Barn, but once she saw the Skip Hop Eureka Unicorn - Zoo Collection backpack, it was game over for Pottery Barn.

I bought Faith's at Target - they are running a deal right now, 10% off backpacks and lunch bags. I was able to grab the backpack for $17.99, the lunchbag below for $8.99 and got an additional 5% off with my Red Card.

When do you do back to school shopping? Are you going to take advantage of some of the great sales out there?
