Back to school craziness

So school starts here in a week.

I am soooo ready for the boys to go back to school.

I think if I heard, mom I'm bored, mom I'm hungry, or mom what are we doing today I would simply go crazy.

But instead the craziness of back to school has started.

Texas has tax free weekend, where anything you buy, school related, clothes, shoes, backpacks, is tax free up to $100.00.

When it first started I thought it was wonderful, that was until I got to the mall.

It was worse than Christmas. I swore never again would I fight to buy a shirt just to save $7.00!!

So this past weekend Hubs and I went school clothes shopping for Reece.

And wouldn't you know it, the mall was having a sale.

I totally racked up at Abercrombie & Fitch and Hollister. Shirts for $5.00 and 13.00.

And shorts from Children's Place for $6.00

The Gap had their backpacks and lunch kits on sale for 30% off so score on that too.

So the only craziness going on for me while everyone else is at the mall saving sooo much money this weekend will be the college graduation I will be attending and then chilling out with my family!

Happy shopping
