I participated in an Influencer Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Carter’s. I received a gift card to facilitate my shopping trip and to thank me for participating.
When I was pregnant with my firstborn son I was your typical, excited mother-to-be. I oohed and ahhed over all of the adorable baby clothes, but because we knew we’d be going from two incomes to one when the baby was born I resisted buying every adorable thing I saw. I did make a few purchases, however, and though I don’t remember everything that I bought, I do remember one thing; the cutest, tiniest little booties. They were blue with an adorable green turtle on them, and I bought them at Carter’s. Those booties were one of my very favorite baby items I had for him, and I kept them to pass down to my other babies I knew we’d have someday.
Over the years and through more and more babies- my friends’ and my own- Carter’s has been a go-to for adorable clothing for our own kids or baby shower gifts. They have a great selection of clothing in all different styles, plus nice wide aisles that make it easier to shop with kids (which happens often). While many of the full priced items are more than we felt we could justify spending on every piece of clothing we needed or wanted, that didn’t keep us from shopping there. Why? Because it’s seems that almost weekly, Carter’s has sales, deals, and coupons that make their adorable, high quality clothing affordable for everyone.
We were able to go shop at our local Carter’s store a few days ago, and the same was true then; Sales on nearly everything there, AND I had a 25% off coupon to use (which I’ll share with you at the end of this post)! They were having sales of up to 70% off of their baby clothes, and other sales on the rest of the clothes too. Not to mention the multiple clearance racks packed full of more adorable clothing.
I was able to get 14 different things for $113, and some of the things I purchased were sets of multiple onesies. If you count how many pieces of apparel I got total, it would be 20. And since I spent $100 pre-tax, I earned $20 in holiday rewards, meaning I get to go back to Carter’s on another day and save $20 on my purchase of $20 or more! Sweet!!
Carter’s clothing ranges in sizes from newborn to 7, and though I have three of my four kids in those ages, only two of them actually fit into those sizes. This made my younger kids happy (more for them!) but my older kids were bummed out; there were so many fun clothes they wished were sold in their size. However, my daughter was able to find pajamas that went up to a size large (size 8-10) so she was thrilled. She picked out her two favorite styles, and I couldn’t have argued with her- they’re adorable! One gown for the colder winter months, one gown for the rest of the year.
My youngest was in need of a pair of jeans, so I grabbed a cute carpenter’s style pair with the adjustable waistband. My youngest three kids have skinny waists, and in order to be able to fit into jeans that are long enough for them, I have to get them the adjustable waist pants. Unlike the ones we normally find though, these have the elastic end sewn to the waistband. We love this so much better, since when we have the elastic stretched a lot (a necessity for my little guy), the elastic stays put in the waistband instead of poking out of the top of his pants.
I, of course, wanted a dress shirt for him for church, and I fell in love with this blue plaid shirt, which has sleeves that can be rolled for the warmer months, or unbuttoned and long for these cooler months.
My middle son found a ton of things he loved, but we ended up leaving with this sharp green and navy checked dress shirt with the same awesome adjustable sleeves, and a cozy zippered hoodie that he LOVES.
