It’s something that I both love and hate. Love it because of all of the great photo opps and joys of new prospects of learning with the cellist. Hate it because my very first baby is now in 7th grade. I feel old. I feel uncool. I feel ill prepared. Ugh!
These last couple of days, I have been running around Chicago like a chicken with its head cut off getting ready for the first day of school, which happens to be Monday btw. He seems to grow like a weed, and his FEET are laughing at my ability to keep up with them. I mean, his foot is bigger than mine. He’s only 12. WHERE IS MY BABY?!
Anyway, I’ve been trying to figure out where to go for shoes for him, where I can get a pretty decent deal and where he won’t glare at me for purchasing him a pair that is not up to middle school standards.
Currently Famous Footwear is running a promotion where you can save 15% and BOGO half off of another pair of shoes. The savings get even better when you’re a rewards member because 15% becomes 20%! Easy on my pocket, yet great for the high standards of a seventh grader. Famous Footwear offers a variety of styles for all of your back to school needs and you can rest easy knowing that you aren’t breaking the bank. And just because I love you guys, there’s even a coupon for you to print off!
There is also the fact that I know that I will have to buy more than one pair of shoes for the cellist, I will definitely look into joining their Rewards Program which allows me to earn 1 point for every $1 that I spend in both the store and online up to a $100 certificate. I will also be able to receive other discounts and perks just for signing up for the program.
You can print and redeem the coupon from now until August 18th and help your child(ren) step into their new year of learning without robbing the bank.
How are you getting ready for back to school shopping? Do you have any other words of advice to share with me? Are you ready for the new school year? Has the summer gone by to quickly for you as well?
