Our tax free weekend is coming up (have you gotten the zillions of coupons in the mail?), and here are some of the basics on my list for A (and a few for J):

Boy ClothesMy typical plan of starter fall clothes for A is three pairs of pants, three long sleeve basics, three graphic tees, a basic coat, and sneakers. And of course I am always on the look out for new hats for J, and I am checking H&M to see if they have these Mario gloves to stick away for A’s birthday. I typically go through and see what hand me downs I have for J from A, and then supplement with some new items.

A has really specific likes and dislikes about clothes right now. He doesn’t like button-ups or items that have too many mixed color patterns. He likes graphic tees, but he is pretty specific about which ones he likes and doesn’t like. What I typically do is pick a color scheme, and then he can mix and match the items, and I save receipts!

Pants: All Gap, in skinny and straight fit because those are A’s favorites.

Long Sleeve Tees: All Gap, one of my favorite places for basics.

Short Sleeve Graphic Tees: Green (Crazy 8), Blue (Gymboree)

Coat: Old Navy

Hats (top to bottom): Old Navy, H&M, Crazy 8

Gloves: H&M

Sneakers: Piperlime, but they have similar at DSW and Shoe Carnival.

The other items that are always on my list for tax free weekend are:

Color Printer CartridgeA new printer cartridge Diapers Diapers for J. On a side note: I started buying Up&Up brand for J and I have liked them just as well as Pampers.

And that’s my plan! I am hoping to get some good deals, but also keep in mind the amount of spending I want to do now and later.
