Go sign up for e-mails from The Children's Place, it is at the bottom of their homepage. They are currently offering 15% off everything in a regular store on top of the 25% of their "Spring Dressy" items. If you are close to an outlet they have a 20% off everything and they are offering 20% off their Dressy items (total of 40% when you use the coupon). You don't have to print the email if you have a smart phone you can just pull up the email on your phone and they can take the code. Save the paper for other coupons. If you are shopping online then don't forget to go through Ebates or Shop at Home for additional cash back.

 When my partner and crime were in the store on Sunday they had a bunch of items marked $4.99 and under. If you need to buy a baby gift or just stock up this is the time to do it. I will say my daughter does have a bunch of Children's Place clothes.

BONUS: If you have a Place Card then you are entered into a sweepstakes to win 1 of 5 $500 gift cards to Children's Place. February is double sweepstakes month. Check out all the details here.

Consignment Sales

There are two HUGE sales coming up in the next few weeks.

Tar Heels Kids Consignment  (formally Tot Trade Charlotte) sale is this weekend. The doors opens to the public on February 23 at 6pm and the final day of the sale is February 26. On February 25 and 26 select items will be discounted. You check check out their calendar for further information about times. This event is held at the Cabarrus Event Center.

Following up after that sale is TTB Kidz. Their sale is March 9 - 11. Their sale is at the Metrolina Tradeshow Expo. Their discount day is March 11 and select items will be 50% off.

With my little one, who will be 2, wears odd sizes. Yes, I know all kids are odd sizes but mine can wear the waist of a 6-9 month old but for pants we need the length of 18-24 months. Shirts at this point almost have to be 24 months to be long enough to cover her torso. For the pants we have become huge fans of the adjustable waist but for shorts and what not we kept last years stuff because she can still wear them.

 I have gotten some good deals of late at Children's Place for Caroline and Kohls for me. Any other good sales that you love to shop?

Harris Teeter Super Doubles

Even with the time management issues of the past weekend I did manage to get to Harris Teeter twice on Monday and got a lot of what was on my list.

The first trip saved $84.92 and spent $37.17 total savings 69.5%. This trip included a rain check for B2G3 on Emerald Nuts, and my EVic for Chex @ $1.97/box. This transaction I also used a coupon from Recyclebank that was $10/$50 at Harris Teeter.

The second trip saved 42.44 and spent $36.62 total savings of 53.6%. This one had tons of yogurt on it because lil' one is sick and that is the only dairy she can have. My favorite deal was the Bumble Bee Chunk Lite Tuna which was on sale for 4/$5, and I had purchased a coupon from Recyclebank $1.00/2. Which made it $0.25/can.

 I am contemplating making another trip sometime today but it will totally depend on my time this afternoon and how the DH and lil' one feel.

How did you guys do? Any great deals found elsewhere?

Time....

Time, such a simple four letter word, that I never seem to have enough of. Time seems to fly. No matter what I am doing. I have know about the Tar Heels Kids Consignment (formerly Tot Trade Consignment) for months. Months I tell you, like back before Christmas. Yet at 5:15pm when I got home yesterday, I was quickly entering in the last 50 items or so before the deadline of 6:00 pm. I made it with 10 minutes to spare, but we life happening I did not get to hang anything or get it tagged. This morning as I was eating breakfast I printed tags so when I get out of school I can hang and tag. Hopefully the DH will be feeling well enough to assist. I have to drop the items off this afternoon before I pick lil' one up from daycare.

I can tell time has not been my friend this semester either. I am way off my game. I have not gotten back into the rhythm of leaving school and heading to the library. I need to because I dislike waiting until the last minute to turn in the homework. Last night is a perfect example, I had two chapter reviews and a test due by midnight, I finished everything at 11:30 p.m. as the news was going off. Makes for a tired mommy/student/wife with 8:00 a.m. classes.
