I'm not the biggest fan of back to school shopping. With Boug heading into the third grade this year, I feel like I've finally realized a few things... If I buy a really good backpack, it will last for years, we're still on the same great one from kindergarten, if you think that the jeans you buy won't have a hole in the knee by Christmas, think again... and the same thing with shoes... they'll be outgrown before spring break. With that being said, I'm all about saving a buck on school shoes, since I know how quickly they get grown out of, but don't want to bother wasting my money on junk that's just going to fall apart a month into school.
I love shopping Famous Footwear! They carry all the styles that Miss Boug loves, and at prices that I can manage. I've been shopping there for years, and of course using their rewards card!! With their rewards program, you earn one point for every one dollar spent and then end up with coupons and certificates in the mail, up to $100 each year! I love it cause it makes shopping down the line easier on me as well, last year I used my coupon for winter slippers for the kiddos. If you don't have their rewards card yet, expect a discount when you sign up too! Year long you'll get other discounts and perks too!!
Right now they're running a back-to-school promotion where you can get 15% off of your purchases AND BOGO half off!! Not one or the other... BOTH!! I can't even begin to tell you how happy I was to hear about that!! Not only does Boug need new school sneakers, Buddy is going to need some as well, thank you Famous Foot wear for saving this broke mama some money!! Don't forget to print your BOGO + 15% off Famous Footwear Coupon before heading to the store! You can redeem it between August 8th and 18th, just in time for back to school!! (oh... and psst!! The discount jumps up to 20% if you're a rewards member or become a rewards member!! YAYYY!!!)
