Back to School Shopping with #MomsGuide

How do you choose your child’s back to school outfits?  Do you have a budget or a limit? Are there specific stores you always shop?

More and more I am becoming a huge fan of shopping online for my kids clothes. I have done a nice chunk of fall/winter clothes shopping online this season. I cannot tell you enough that is totally a mommy solution! Who can beat $5 flat-rate shipping or free shipping on orders that are over $99? That is what you get with CookiesKids!


All of their clothes are discounted- meaning immediate savings on every single purchase.   Take this Marvel short set for example. The website shows that the original price is $26, but CookiesKids is selling it for $6.99! That is over 70% in savings!

And  do you include sleepwear in your back to school shopping? I do. I always like to buy 1-2 new pairs of pajamas per child as we approach the new school year.

CookiesKids has tons of pajama combinations on their site with prices you just cannot beat.


And who can beat these Scooby Doo jammies for under $10 when the price tag says I should have paid $30!


And new jammies make us want to cuddle up on the couch with our favorite books before bedtime.

Luke has a new found favorite story- Harold and the Purple Crayon. We have read it over and over again.

(And, did I mention he loves his new Lighting McQueen pajamas?)

And Nick is just adorable (and very distracted by the Disney Channel) in his Scooby pajamas.


Matthew picked a pair of Batman Lego pajamas from the CookiesKids website. Apparently everyone else picked them too as they were out of stock by the time my order shipped. While I was totally bummed (and so was Matthew) they did send me this email before my order shipped. I thought this was great customer service.

Due to the overwhelming demand for sale merchandise, the SMA01428 Lego Batman \”Blast Action\” 2-Pack Pajama Set (Sizes 4 – 7) (Blue/Navy) (4) you’ve ordered from CookiesKids is out of stock. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and have canceled the item(s) from your order.   Please remember that CookiesKids will only charge your credit card for items shipped out from our facilities. You will not be charged until the items have shipped.

Shopping for Kids Clothes Online #CookiesKids

How would you like to shop for name brand kids clothing online and at a discounted price?

And the best part, your order ships for $5.00- flat! (Right now you get free shipping for any clothing order over $99.00.)

Do you see me eagerly raising my hand? kids clothes online I was recently given the opportunity to purchase $30 in clothes for my boys at an online store called This $30 was enough to buy an outfit for each of the little boys, including shipping and tax. I added $1.97 to complete the order.

That is correct, three outfits for less than $32.00!

I went on the hunt for boys sets- where the shirt and shorts come together as a pair. These make great outfits for play.

This is what my shopping cart looked like.  

I placed my order and in just a few days it was delivered at my door- so speedy! (Remember, $5.00 shipping.)

Man, I wish other companies could ship and deliver that fast!

Once the items were delivered, I went through the pieces and quickly noticed each set still had the original department store price tags on them.

For Nicky, I picked this Sponge Bob outfit. (He loves Sponge Bob.)

The $7.99 price was about 20% off the department store tag. Not bad.

Luke loves Angry Bird. (So does Nicky, but they also like to wear clothes that are different from one another.)

The original price tag on this outfit was $24.99. As you can see in my shopping cart above, the price I scored this at was less than $10.00.

And Matthew loved his Diego outfit.

This outfit was less than $9.00 and this was about 20-25% off the department store tag.

I have washed each of these outfits twice already, and the quality is perfect.

If you are on the hunt for a new summer wardrobe for your kids, this is defiantly a site to check out- is a mommy solution!

Wondering how this company got started?

In 1972, a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin went into business together. They rented a 1600 square foot store in Jamaica, Queens, fixed it up, bought inventory and Summer and Fall, and opened a day after Thanksgiving with a full stock of holiday toys. The toys were a success and they put the extra money toward buying children’s clothing for the next season. When that did well, they bought more clothing. The business was on it’s way.

As the brothers Cookie, Marvin and Sonny, who had come in as a third partner in the business, began to open new stores in new locations, inventory expanded. Besides the latest fashions, our customers wanted shoes, toys, backpacks and accessories and we were prepared to deliver.

By the late 1990’s there were six superstores throughout the NYC area, and though they previously had different names, by that time they were all named Cookie’s Kids. Also in the late ’90s came an important addition to Cookie’s Kids’ inventory: school uniforms. It was the steady success in uniform sales that paved the way for founding in 2007, which originally sold uniforms and soon after the entire Cookie’s Kids Inventory.

Speaking of school uniforms their pricing on these items seems hard to beat. Polos are as affordable as $4.99! Check out my Google+ story for more awesome finds.

Dallas Mom Blogger

Hi, I am Crystal, a Dallas mom blogger to five boys and in the mist of raising a blended family.

This blog was created initially as a place to capture the stories and fun which life brings with so many boys under one roof. It slowly morphed into a mommy resource and solution site. I believe that everyone has a story. It is THIS story that make you who you ARE and who you are NOT. This is where I tell my story.

dallas mom blogger crystal vantassel

In January 2014, this site received 786,549 pageviews  (over 433,307 unique visitors)  and has become a community for those looking for mom advice, those wanting to learn how to meal plan with easy recipes, ways to save money,  activities for kids and preschoolers, educational/homeschool resources as well as crafts with fun printables.

I have made it my mission to help busy moms get dinner on the table by providing weekly meal plans, developing and sharing easy recipes and by writing an eBook How to Meal Plan A Step by Step Guide for Busy Moms. I understand the struggle dinnertime can bring, not only as a stay at home mom but also as a former corporate America mom. And, you do not have to be the most organized mom on the planet to make meal planning a success and I prove this to you in my eBook. My life has lacked elite levels of organization since 2006, not be be confused with the exact year I became a mom of twins. If you could only see my laundry room your would gasp!
