Here we are, the last day in April and I am posting about a snow hat. Oh well. Some truly busy times kept me from posting much sooner, but I do want to share the information about this deal with you and perhaps you can look out for it later this year, in the next winter season if it will be available again. For just $6.99 each, I purchased these adorable Olaf snow hats for my boys during the Christmas 2014 season. I purchased them at walmart.com and the price had been significantly reduced in a clearance deal. I can not recall for certain what the original price was for each hat but I think it was $12.99. So, that's an almost 50% off savings. It's a nice quality hat that provides some comic relief. It will make you smile when you see your kid wearing it. The character Olaf from the Disney movie Frozen is really funny. I have stumbled upon several good clearance deals at walmart.com. I recommend you look at that section of the Walmart website to save money. Shopping in the off season is another tip you might find helpful if you do not already know about it. Winter items will generally be less expensive at the end of December/ beginning of January than they are in September, October or November. They would be even less expensive now, in April, May and the hot summer months. Yes, that is really off season. If you have adequate space to store items, maybe you would like to shop for them early, before you really need them. Until Next Time. Cheers!

"You get what you pay for" is a phrase that never seems to go out of style. Sometimes, when hunting for a huge bargain, we end up receiving a cheaply made, low quality product that does not last. Often times, paying a little extra allows you to be provided with a product that can last much longer than the cheaper one. Nevertheless, you really score a great deal when you get that higher quality product at a much lower cost than typical. I like the stylish features and durability of shoes that are very well made. When online shopping for shoes for my sons, I have learned to weed out the sites that will not typically offer me the best deals and go straight to the ones that will. In no particular order (I have not ranked them), here are my top 5 sites for online shopping for high quality brand name shoes for boys.: 1. nordstrom.com
This past weekend, the family and I went shopping in the Walmart store. I shop Walmart online fairly frequently but in the past 4 weeks, I went to the store in person, twice. One of the good finds this time was a Walmart rollback deal for Fruit of the Loom t-shirts for boys. The already very reasonable low price of $3.47 per t-shirt was reduced to $2.97 per t-shirt! I think that anything under $3.00 is a truly awesome price for a child sized t-shirt. We might often think of Fruit of the Loom for underwear and under shirts only, but these t-shirts are not undergarments. They are good quality t-shirts for wearing in the spring and summer with jeans or shorts. They are available in an array of colors. I snagged a couple of blue ones and was pleased with the purchase. With the sales cycling from Sunday to Saturday, the price of this particular item might possibly go back up by this coming Sunday. I encourage all Moms with active boys to take a look at this deal. When strolling around the Walmart, don't forget to look out for those 'Rollback" signs indicating clearance deals. Where the $2.97 Fruit of the Loom t-shirts were set up, there were other display tables nearby with other t-shirts priced at $6.00 and up, so let's keep a keen eye for the best deals. Until next time...Cheers!
