Today my little girl started 2nd grade. This summer has completely flown by and while we were getting outfits together for this first week I quickly realized that she did not have a single pair of shoes to wear with dresses or skirts #bloggermomfail so we made a quick trip to the mall yesterday and grabbed some cute ones . This is the moment that I realized I really need a get stuff done type of day and start really prepping for fall.

First thing was getting all the outfits laid out for the week and double checking shoes, underwear and socks for the kids. Here are some great places for kids deals right now:

TARGET 20% off shoes for the entire family w/ code SHOES20, I just grabbed these adorable leopard slip-ons for my daughter but when we got them they were too big so size down if your kiddo is in-between because they will slip off. This is also where I stocked up on underwear and socks, my son went crazy for the dinos and my daughter adores these super soft ones.

HANNA ANDERSSON 40% off tops & bottoms w/ code SAVE40NOW I’m loving so much of their fall items for family pictures like this plaid that comes in little girls, boys and baby perfect for families that have a few kiddos.

GAP Friends and Family 40% off everything w/ code FRIEND plus extra 10% off online order w/ code SCORE we picked up this sweatshirt for my Dino lover and flippy sequin shoes for my daughter.

OLD NAVY Kid Fleece zip-up jackets and bottoms starting at $8 today I’m LOVING this adorable Dino hoodie for babies too bad it only goes up to 24m.

After I felt like I got the kids situated with clothes & shoes it was time to take a look at the rest of our month and take a good look at our calendar systems. I have a planner that I love that keeps all my notes and appointments but I really needed something visual and while we were at Target looking for colored chalk pens I found this great dry erase board that sits by my keys.
