I haven’t been posting much this week, partly because of the holiday, and partly because my son has decided to stay awake until 3am every night. Ah, the life of a mom.

I had to grab a few minutes to blog about Fourth of July sales. I recommend checking out Oldnavy.com this weekend. They are having great sales on their summer clothes, and you get free shipping on orders over $100.

July is a great savings month. Stores are starting to mark down their summer clothes to make way for fall. I recommend “buying ahead.” In other words, start buying clothes now in the sizes your kids will be (most likely) wearing next summer. You’ll save money AND you won’t be rushing out to buy new clothes when the seasons change. Our little one had clothes for all seasons before he was even BORN, because I am just that crazy.

While you are grilling out and watching fireworks this weekend, make a little time to hit the clearance racks. You won’t regret it!
