When our family is in need of clothes, Kohl’s is the first place we go to shop. They always have really cute styles, and I love the savings I can find! I’m completely obsessed with the Lauren Conrad collection, and I get so excited when I see her clothes and jewelry on sale! So when Kohl’s asked if I would like to participate in their back to school campaign, I was over-the-moon excited!!
Kohl’s sent me a package with a $500 gift card and a few extra goodies they thought I would love… which I totally do! My kids recently spent some time at their grandparents’ house, and I decided I would get all their back to school clothes shopping done while they were gone. I figured it would be easier than dragging them through the store for hours, and boys just don’t get overly thrilled about shopping for school clothes anyway. Sigh. So with my gift card in hand and a little bit of Kohl’s cash I had stashed (I told you I shop there a lot!), I headed to the store! 
I went straight to the boy’s section and found some adorable striped hooded shirts that will be perfect once the Fall weather rolls in.

I also picked out a few Nike outfits for casual days and all the sports practices we have coming up. My boys LOVE wearing comfortable track pants, which they usually call their “swishy pants.” I guess that is the noise they make when you walk!

I found two big displays full of cute shirts on sale for $7.99 each. I stocked up on a few for each of them!

And of course, what little boy’s wardrobe would be complete without a super hero t-shirt or two?

Jeans are definitely a back to school staple, and my growing boys always seem to go through a few pairs before Christmas break even comes.  I can always find the sizes I need at Kohl’s, even for my skinny mini oldest son who needs the slim sizes.

 I learned a long time ago to only buy pants with an adjustable waist. The kids get so much more use out of them that way!

I was surprised to find a nice, big section of backpacks and lunch boxes at Kohl’s too!

The boys definitely needed some new shoes for school, and I immediately spotted this gray and yellow pair of sneakers for my three year old. He always tells us he wants a yellow truck and a yellow house, and I was pretty sure he would flip over these yellow shoes too!

I stopped briefly to drool over all the adorable little girl’s clothes that I never get to buy. Everything is so cute! Do you think my little guy would be mad if I put him in a tutu for his first day of preschool?

Luckily, my cart was more than overflowing so I figured it was time to head to the check-out counter to see what my grand total was!

I piled all the items from my very full cart onto the counter and watched the computer screen as my savings added up… I just love that big, red savings total!

I walked out of Kohl’s with three GIANT bags of clothes and a smile on my face from ear to ear. 
Here’s what I came home with: 
23 shirts
11 pairs of pants
2 pajamas
3 pairs of shoes
1 package of underwear
1 backpack

And did you really think I was going to leave a $500 Kohl’s shopping spree without picking up a few things for myself too? I managed to snag 5 shirts and a pair of pants with all the awesome savings I found! Isn’t this Lauren Conrad striped shirt absolutely dreamy? I can’t wait to wear it!

So now to the fun part… the grand total! I was able to get the boys all the school clothes they needed plus a few things for myself, and I came in just $50 over budget! My original total was $727.24, but after I used $30 Kohl’s cash I had from a previous trip and used a 20% off Kohl’s reward coupon, my total was only $557.79! I wish I could tell you the amount of savings I had from the original price of everything we purchased, but I only have a post sale adjustment receipt which doesn’t show those savings. We had a minor error while checking out when the very kind woman almost forgot to give us our 20% off! 
Do you want to know one of the best parts of doing all my back to school shopping at Kohl’s? I now have $100 more Kohl’s cash to go back and spend! Woo-Hoo!! I see more Lauren Conrad fashion in my future : )

When my boys got home and found their newly stocked closet, they were so excited! I’m pretty sure my little guy’s face says it all:
