My Latest, Greatest Deal: Winter Clearance @ Re-Kid (local Lexington, only)

It's winter clearance time for many retailers, and a savvy bargain shopper's opportunity to clean-up on some fabulous deals! And, it's an even better opportunity to take advantage of winter clearance deals at second-hand/thrift stores, too. Talk about saving some money!

I was notified late last week that our local Re-Kid consignment shops are not only having their winter clearance sales, but are also doing a winter clearance $16-fill-a-bag promotion! My inner-bargain-hunter let out a squeal of delight when I read the e-mail, and I made a goal to get there as soon as possible. The sale works like this—you go into the store and they give you a bag to fill. Whatever winter clothing you are able to fit into the bag is yours for $16! According to the e-mail, "Sale is not on any summer clothing or items that are put out year round. For example, jeans, dress pants, sport coats, rain jackets and long sleeve dress shirts. Not valid with any other promotion or offer. Top of bag must be able to touch." That's it! So, I was chomping at the bit to get over there, and I finally made it last night. They still have quite a selection, and boy did I fill my bag! My goal was to stock up on some next year's winter items for my daughter. Here's what I found:



  1. next year's Christmas dress (Gymboree)
  2. two pairs of corduroy pants (Gap)
  3. one pair of corduroy overalls (Gymboree)
  4. three sweaters (Gap, Hartstrings, and Laura Ashley)
  5. one turtleneck onesie (Old Navy)
  6. one long-sleeved t-shirt (Kid Connection)
  7. an Old Navy zip-up fleece
I SHOULD have paid $48.90 for all of this, but since I was able to fit it all in a $16 bag, I only paid $16! That's almost 68% off . . . a discount of $32.90! That's like paying $1.60 for each item! For those who are wondering, I believe the sale ends this coming Friday, the 29th, so hurry on over.

These are my latest, greatest bargain shopping deals. Happy shopping!
