Keeping costs as low as possible
DS # 2 will be starting a Summer job soon, and we just learned that he is required to wear beige khakis, which he doesn't already own. I first tried Kohl's on line, and found some that would work @ $58 but buy a second pair and they're 50% off so call this $87/2 pairs. I would get free shipping, and still would have tax to pay.
I then tried JC Penny, and found a great pair, as cargo pants which DS would like, but alas, his size is sold out. I did find the basic khakis pictured above: normally $40, they are on sale $21.99. I used a promo code to get an additional $10 off, and am having them shipped to the store (I live 10 minutes away) to avoid shipping charges. After tax, the cost is $33.98/2 pairs-less than 1/2 of what the Kohl's pants would have cost. Luckily, I am able to use alternative resources to cover this cost, so no direct OOP for me. Final uniform pieces will be 2 solid colored T's-I plan on trying WM (not my favorite choice but they should have what kidlet needs for $10 out the door, total).
