… why not start thinking about winter? (Sure, that makes sense.)
If you have kids who need winter coats—or if you’re the awesome sort of person who buys ahead for the inevitable coat drives to come—check these out: Amazon has Big Chill Expedition jackets in both girls’ and boys’ versions, right now, starting at around $12. You’ll have to play around with the sizes/colors to find the best deals, but most of them are under $20.
And this is where I’ll confess that, yes, my high school senior is still wearing a boys’ sized parka in the winter, because that coat in 18/20 was about half the cost of the same one in a men’s size. These jackets don’t run quite that large (up to 18, in boys’, and just 14/16, in girls’), but enjoy the kids’ sizes while you can!
Boo! Just missed it. My daughter is in a 12 now, and the one she likes only comes in 10/12.
