Whether it’s back-to-school season or simply the kickoff to fall, your kids are going to need new clothes. Winter is just around the corner. Being a parent of two small boys, I am always looking for sales or bargains... basically low prices. I have to be a lot smarter when I shop these days.
As sad as it might be, summer is going to be over in just a few short weeks. You’ll soon have to prepare for fall and everything that comes along with it—from the transition from iced coffee to pumpkin spice lattes, to adding some warm clothes to your closet.

Here are some brands and stores that are just a little out of my price range, and who knows if you're reading this and have tons of money, then this may help you out.
