I just went "back-to-school" shopping for my kids.  I have a 11-year old boy going into the 6th grade and a 5 year old girl that is starting Kindergarten.  I consider myself a very frugal shopper and yesterday I hit all the "CLEARANCE" racks and saved A LOT of $$!!!  I was able to buy my 5-year old some of the capri pants that are in style right now for $3 a pair, tops to match for $5 each.  I got her a pair shoes that match most of her cloths for $5, and a couple dresses for $7 each.  My son was able to find Diamondback shorts/shirt for $5 each, and Phx Suns clothes were $5 each, He really likes the camouflage look right now and I was able to pick up a couple of those shirts for $2, and a pair of Faded Glory jeans for $8.  The kids thought the clothes were great. -- Melinda from AZ
