A Good Deal is No Deal if your Kids won't Wear it!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Famous Footwear for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Some of Many Styles Found at Famous Footwear

School shopping is not for the faint of heart.

If you are taking a child or children school shopping you know how quickly the dollars can add up. I used to try my hardest to put aside money throughout the summer because I knew how expensive school shopping could be, but I could not seem to save any money during the summer when I had a house full of teenagers with hollow legs and expensive tastes!!
Being stylish is expensive!
I had all four of my children in NYC, so when we moved to my home state of Michigan, they thought they were expected to be more stylish. NY is the home of the fashion industry and many of the styles we saw students wearing in Michigan, had already been sported and replaced in New York so my children wouldn't hear of wearing those so shopping became a real chore and an expensive one to boot!
I had four children and a budget!
As much as I tried to reason and explain to my children that I could only do so much, I understood that peer pressure was harder on them than it had been on me. They were the new kids on the block and I wanted them to look good because a child does better in school and is more confident when they look good but still it was just me doing for them!


One of the most expensive things on the list was shoes!

It seemed like every time I turned around one of the children needed new shoes. There was no way I could keep up with the growth spurts on a budget that refused to budge! As soon as they were able to they found after school jobs and helped with their clothing expenses. We had an arrangement where I paid so much and they chipped in so we were all very happy when we found Famous Footwear at the mall. The big signs grabbed my attention and the kids kinds of moaned and groaned till they saw the shoes, then they were sold. A deal means nothing if your kids won't wear it but they loved these shoes!!

i totally understand the peer pressure, Judy, being a teacher in high school, I saw this from kids, they look so proud and happier if they have the right clothing and shoes.

My kids will be in for a shock. We do not have a moving budget, but I love the idea of them working little jobs and then pitching in.

Maybe I should check out this footwear place.
