Okay. What do you expect? When you can buy a brand new men's coat for $8.00, mittens and hat sets for .97, mens pants for $3.00, footed sleepers for $1.50, etcetera etcetera etcetera. My sister and I always prepare our households for next year by buying at clearance sales and then supplement with hand-me-downs, yard sales, and salvation army finds. It was even MORe fun doing it together-as shopping alone can be less than thrilling.
