Old navy opinion

Old Navy is great place to find deals for almost anyone in the family (link). I love to pick up easy gift cards for my nephews’ birthdays. If you need a baby shower gift – they sell infant size too. 4th of July shirts are always $5 for adult and $4 for child size. My store always ran out and after 4 years I finally got in on the great t-shirt deal.

If you need to buy “docker” style of pants in a hurry and don’t have time to shop around for a good deal, I can always count on finding my size or my husband’s. Same thing with jeans. Otherwise the store is expensive unless it’s in the clearance area in the back. If you are good at guessing what size your family will grow for the next season, I’ve gotten great deals on shirts, stretch pants for girls, and sweats for the family. I bought heavy sweat shirts for $1 a piece in the off season – and stored them away in Rubbermaid containers in the basement.

When I got the 4th of July shirts, they had a great deal on other t-shirts for only $5 each. I’ve washed them many times and left them to hang dry – still looking brand new. I really like their socks when on sale, and all kinds of great little stocking stuffer for the holidays – small bottles of makeup, backpack tags, beads and bangles, etc. I sound like I shop there every week, but I would have to say I stop in once every season for the family, and then quicker trips for the gift card stops.

My children are ages 7 and 8, girl and boy respectively. I’m sizes 14-16 and my husband is 2x. The nephews are ages 10 and up.

Land’s End Backpack

Just wanted to let you all know of my excitement for the day. Last year I bought my 3 kids each a Land’s End backpack for school. They were in the sale catalog and were almost half price because the colors for the new ones had changed. Early into the school year my younger son had a zipper stick on one of the outside pockets.

While trying to fix it the zipper broke of course. We just ignored it the rest of the year since it was only an outside pocket and not the main zipper. Also the pack has 2 other pockets so I told him to use those. Today I called them to see if they would do anything about it and they are sending out a brand new backpack!!

They didn’t have the exact one that he has but a comparable one is being sent!! Yoo-hoo! They are sending a postage label so I can send the old one back to them when we receive the new one. This is what I call service! There is a difference in quality of their merchandise as well. I only buy it on sale or at thrift stores but the clothes last and wash really well.
