Workin' the Gymboree system

Is there a mother out there that doesn't adore Gymboree clothes?

I certainly haven't ever met one. Love it though we may, we all agree that Gymboree is way overpriced.

But I bucked the system today! Woohoo!

On our drive home from CA a couple weeks ago, the girls and I stopped at a Gymboree outlet store. Emma practically lives in their knit dresses, so I was hoping to find some low-priced treasures. Sure enough, I bought four or five dresses (for both now and next fall/winter) for between $3.99 and $10.99.

I was pretty darned pleased. Em was, too. Thanks to her recent modesty development, she at least waited till I shut the car door before changing into one of the dresses. LOL

Annnnnnyway... I earned $25 in free Gym bucks so I headed over to the mall this morning to see what I could find for the least amount of money. Heeheeheeheee...

Check it out!

1 pr. of the softest light green cords you've ever felt
2 skirts
2 prs. of leggings (pink and green)
1 bathing suit
1 cover-up

$150 worth of treasures, all for the grand total of $40!!!!!!!

Woohoo! Uh huh! Oh yeah! Doin' the dance...

High quality clothing for way less than I could get similar (and much less cute) items for at (sweatshop-haven) Wal-Mart!
