Twin Cities Trip--Herbergers Clearance Finds
In case my granddaughters visit up here in the Artic North from Texas next season , I picked up two Columbia Snow Suits at Herbergers 70% off the clearance price.
I do not want to pay a lot for a snowsuit that may not get much use. But to find Columbia sets for under $30 is an amazing deal I could not pass up. I even found the little matching Lavender hat for Mahala's set for $3.30!
I found Ralph Lauren jeans for $9.00 a pair instead of $45.00 each for little ones to grow into. He last week found himself styling being introduced to Ralph Lauren Jeans for a mere $19.99.
I love taking trips to Minneapolis in February and all the clearance finds I can score. But this year with paying off debt, buying Docs New Old Car which we were up there picking up, I was limited. Limited in time on a one day sprint of a trip and a funding limit which I obeyed, despite temptation.
I have learned to buy name-brand jackets and snow-wear. Columbia and Lands End have lifetime warranties and if something goes wrong such as a zipper breaks, all I do is mail it in. In a couple of weeks it is returned repaired or replaced! Buying Columbia on clearance lasts through multiple kids, doesn't date and fetches a nice price when I resell it after we are done with it or is a great donation to a coats for kids program.
