Back-to-school clothes shopping can be a daunting task, if you let it. For my son, shopping for new clothes isn’t as exciting as shopping for video games, but it can be easier for both of us if we decide on his “uniform” for the year. It also helps it the prices are right, and the selection is plenty. This year, we took our back-to-school shopping to Kmart.
My son’s style is pretty simple: graphic tees of all kinds, comfortable jeans, and a cool pair of shoes that he can wear to the grocery store, gym or playing with friends in front of our home. That’s his uniform for the year, so that’s what we searched for at Kmart.
The selection was surprising and delightful. My kiddo is a gamer, so he looked for items that celebrated his favorite hobby. The Keep It Classic stuck out to him, and he loved that it included a matching beanie. He also searched for tees that had his favorite movie and television show characters. He made sure to put an Avengers, Pokemon and Minions shirt in the cart.
I couldn’t believe that Kmart had Wrangler jeans, and that they had plenty of them in my son’s size. We always get jeans with adjustable tabs, since he’s a tall but lanky fellow. We scored this pair for only 15 dollars, and I know that they will last until next spring…or his next growth spurt.
Can we talk about these shoes? These Joe Boxer slip-ons caught his eye immediately, since they look like a classic video game. Bonus: they glow in the dark! The best 10 dollars spent that day.
After half an hour in store, my oldest had his first back-to-school outfit of the year. And just like that, I realized he’s also one year older. 5th grade, here he comes!
