As I was going through my big pile of kids clothes to consign, I realized that some of my sons pants (from Gymboree) from last winter still fit him. I was excited that I didn't have to buy as many outfits for this winter, only... They didn't have the matching tops.
Then this morning I had this brilliant (if I do say so myself!) epiphany - the Gymboree outlet sells last seasons clothes! So off I went to the outlet and guess what! I got the two tops I needed to complete these outfits! Two tops for $11! Two complete outfits for $11!
The pants were an end of season clearance find earlier in the year but didn't have a top. Found the matching top at the Gymboree outlet for $6!
These pants my son wore a ton last winter and they still fit! But the shirt didn't. I found the exact same shirt he had last winter in a bigger size for only $5!
I will note that the prices at the Gymboree outlet aren't always this low. Since it's a holiday weekend, they had a big sale and the whole store was 50% off.
So if you have pieces from last seasons outfits that still fit your children, don't dismiss them! Try the Gymboree outlet to complete your outfit for much cheaper than buying a whole new outfit!
