So my oldest is about to venture into the dreaded… MIDDLE SCHOOL in a couple of weeks. You know, the place where tweens start to assert their social dominance… where the innocence of elementary school (and childhood) are quickly left behind for the latest TV show, iTouch game, hairstyle and Tshirt?! A place where saying or wearing the wrong thing at any given moment can reek total havoc on the rest of your school existence?!!
Well, maybe it’s not that bad?…. yeah, right!
My son has been brought up with a very thrifty family who has taught him not to been afraid to shop at thrift stores (or still play with Legos) up until this point and I’m not going to stop now (at least until he cries “Uncle” for fear of total social banishment) so we head over to the main Seattle Dearborn and Bellevue store to check out their Back-to-school sales.
Immediately we were met with a Back to School display…
I even ended up finding some brand-new Sofft sandals for only $12.99 in our shopping!
