Wal-Mart Back to School Closet Creator and a $25 Gift Card Giveaway

by Jennifer Sikora

I am a definite bargain shopper when it comes to clothing. My husband says he can always tell when a bargain is nearby because I get this gleam in my eye like a kid in a candy store! Clearance racks and bins are my favorite to shop when I go anywhere and Wal-Mart is NO exception. With their already low every day prices, when items go on clearance at Wal-Mart, you can bet you are going to get one heck of a bargain.

Recently, I went on a shopping spree with money provided by Wal-Mart to see if I could outfit my kids for 5 days for the new school year. I can tell you that it was super easy to because they have the best prices around when it comes to fashionable clothing.

This whole outfit only cost $15! The shoes were on sale for $5, the shirt was on the clearance rack for $3, and the shorts were on sale for $7. I was able to create 4 more outfits similar to this one but more fall type clothing. My daughter was extremely happy with all of her purchases and intends on showing off her new clothes next week!

I bought an $800 computer at Circuit City in 2006 that was on a super sale when mail-in-rebates were taken into account – saved $300, but also had a 10% off coupon that was good for any one purchase and the 10% was taken off the $800 sticker price giving me $80 off the $500 + another $24 off because it wasn’t available to be picked up within the 30 minutes promised. less than $400 for a very good computer for 2006 standards.
