Well, here we are. It's Christmas and holiday shopping season in East Texas.

I've got a feeling many of us will be doing some shopping for kids' clothes for Christmas. As much as some kids balk at receiving clothing for Christmas, it's necessary. And honestly, today's kids seem WAY more fashion-conscious than we did when we were kids.

And teenagers? Ah, well that's a different story altogether. Teenagers are usually ALWAYS wanting a wardrobe update in the era of the Kardashians. And parents want to do what they can to provide them with the cool clothes they want--but at what cost?

And maybe you're in need of a wardrobe update, as well. I certainly know I do. Good grief I can't remember the last time I went shopping for clothes.

After last year, many East Texans have had to tighten the budget a bit. Or a lot. And so, anywhere we can save a few extra bucks is most welcome and helpful.
