It’s that time – back-to-school! Or for our family first-time-to school. Waahhh. I get teared up just thinking about my newly turned 5 year-old heading off to full-day kindergarten. To help us get prepared for school I was graciously provided with a gift card and sent out to have a Ross Dress for Less shopping experience.
Since Kindergarten is quickly approaching Avery and I used the gift card as an opportunity to drop her younger sister off with grandma and make a girl’s day of it. We got a coffee (she opted for a smoothie), ran a few quick errands then headed to our closest Ross Dress for Less location. (link: http://www.rossstores.com)
Now, I have been a Ross shopper for years. And I have taken Avery and her younger sister along on a few occasions. Truth be told I prefer to go by myself so I can take my time to look, but this time we were after a fun shopping experience together. Every time I shop at Ross I find something I love at a great price. Usually I end up finding much more then I went shopping for and have to make tough decisions what I really like & what I can’t live without.
We weren’t sure what we were looking for so we started in the purses, but we didn’t get much past the shoes. Ha! We decided together that it would be nice for Mommy to get something since Avery was already prepared for school. Once we found my size she started lining up shoes for me to try on that she thought I would like.
After trying on about 20 pairs I decided on a great pair of lace-up boots. I love how they zip up the side and I can wear them with skinny jeans, leggings or skirts. I really enjoyed shopping with Avery and seeing what she picked out for me to try. So often I’m picking out or suggesting clothes or shoes for her, I enjoyed the role reversal. It was also funny seeing what she thinks I like, and for the most part she made some good picks.
We did walk through the kid’s clothes and toys and of course she found a bunch of things she liked. At that time she started to question her generous suggestion to use the gift card on Mom, but she held true to her word. Since we’d already spent the gift card we resolved to start our late fall and winter clothing shopping at Ross.
Since our shopping trip she’s already asked me when we’re going back to Ross Dress for Less for some cute clothes for her and her sister. For the time being we are set, but once the weather turns cooler we’re definitely heading back to shop for them.
