How Many Apparel Items Can you Buy At Walmart with $100?

School shopping is full on right now, and clothes were something I was NOT looking forward to buying.  With 4 boys in the house, we can get by with hand-me-downs for a few of them.  My oldest, however, really needed a few new items (including jeans), so we hit the local Walmart to see what we could buy for under $100.

Here is a quick recap of our trip; we stopped by the boys department and purchased quite a few thing for our money!


In total, we bought:
  • 4 pairs of boys' jeans
  • 3 graphic tees
  • one pack of underwear (plain)
  • one pack of underwear (character)
  • 9 pairs of pajamas (on clearance for $1 each!)
  • one pair of shorts
It was quite a haul, and my kids were thrilled to have a few new pieces for the schoolyear.  I was very impressed with the ability to get so much for under $100.  (Most families I know have limited budgets, so this was the most important aspect of our trip.)

Here is Micah sporting his FAVORITE t-shirt, which we happened to buy this particular day.  (It features Ben10, his favorite show; there were lots of characters to choose from, making it easy for the kids to find just the right look!)

Since we live on a farm, and jeans get quite the workout, it was important to have items that could withstand the wear.  I'm very happy with the quality of the jeans we bought -- and at a fraction of the cost of what deparment stores in our area would charge.
