Of all the things I spend money on, I think it’s dress shoes for the kids that causes me the most agony. They’ll wear them a couple of times and then outgrow them, and it seems like such a waste of money. On the other hand, pairing grungy sneakers with Easter finery seems like a poor choice. So every year I suck it up and buy them some Nice Shoes.
This year I’ll be shopping online at Payless. Not only does it beat hitting the store, but they have a bunch of stuff online you can’t even get at the store. Plus, coupon code 44834 takes off another 20%, which means I can either justify the $5.95 flat rate shipping to my house, or I can opt for free ship-to-store and just pocket those savings and run over to my local store to pick up my purchases. Easy and cheap—my favorite combination.
