I know, 6.25!  I found out about an incredible deal from a friend in the area about this cool site that offers local business gift certificates for a discount.  There is an awesome kids’ consignment shop nearby that was a participant, and I was able to snag some things this past weekend (with Mom and Anna) for the upcoming spring/summer season. (I’m pretending it is soon going to be warm.)

The site is affiliated with Cumulus Deals.  It is a company that works in conjunction with local radio stations to offer incredible deals to local businesses and generate revenue for the local economy (that’s my take on what they do.)  Apparently, there are over 50 metropolitan areas that have participating radio stations, so get your your Google homepage and search “cumulus deals” and your “hometown”.  It’ll direct you to the radio station that sponsors the local deals.

The deal I got was a 50.00 certificate for 12.50, and then a small fee for shipping.  So I guess the real total is 16.25 + 6.25….but all of that for over 65 dollars worth of clothes – WAIT, because the deal goes on…it was the semi-annual clearance, so it was an additional 10 or 20% off all of the stuff too!

I was super excited.  Can you tell?  This post is dedicated to the Frugal Flamingo :)

you have a right to be excited my friend!! awesome deals! i think there is nothing more fulfilling than getting an awesome deal, so i don't understand why some people don't do it more! (and by "some" people i wasn't referring to anyone imparticular.....just in general:)

I love the deals!! It seems ridiculous to buy full priced kids clothes. We just bought a snowsuit for samantha to wear for the rest of the winter and got it in blue so that Jake could use it next year. Originally I had gotten a pink one, but then returned it the next day to babies r us for a blue one. Just that one day later they had gone on another 40% off sale, so I got the pants and jacket for $15.00! What I should have done was buy the pink on in a larger size for Samantha next year, but I wasn't thinking to quickly!
