I wasn't willing to spend $82.99 on a pair of shoes my son desperately wanted after that the lady at the store told us the shoes would hurt his feet if he used them for gym class. Maybe it's because he had his heart set on those shoes that he battled me for over an hour trying to find another pair that met his liking. Whatever the case, it was painful - however, the amount of money I saved almost made it worth the hassle.
My son ended up selecting a pair of K-Swiss running shoes that were priced at $69.99. Not a huge savings from the original shoes he selected, but still a savings. My daughter had her mind made up in less than 15 minutes that she must get these Twinkle Toes by Skechers that were originally priced at $54.99, but happened to be on sale that day for $34.99. Already a $20 savings, sign me up! Only problem was they didn't have her size - UGH! Thankfully the store offered free home delivery, we'd just have to wait. We still have almost 2 weeks before school starts so we're ok with waiting.
My total savings was $62.99 - making this one happy mama! That's a 52.8% savings
