School's out summer shopping spree - saving money on the kids’ holiday wardrobe

As the school year comes to an end, our thoughts have turned to the summer holidays. The boys are super excited about many weeks at home over the school summer holidays. They are full of ideas of how to spend the summer and are especially excited about our UK staycation holiday where we will be visiting family in Leeds before a few fun days at Blackpool. We've got plans to visit family friendly attractions, dine at restaurant with rooms Yorkshire dales, visit museums and explore the heritage and natural wonders of Yorkshire.

As both boys have had a recent growth spurt and have grown out of most of their clothes, especially their summer clothes from last year they are in desperate need of a new wardrobe. In fact T is growing so quickly that the new swim shorts I bought him in May are already too small and tight! In the hope that we are going to have a sun-filled summer we need to buy them new clothes that are perfect for sunny days. Shorts, t-shirts, lightweight short sleeve shirts and even swimwear are needed. 

Both of the boys have their own sense of style and as such we encourage them to dress in clothes they like. They both love clothes shopping and know what clothes they do or do not like the look of. But as life has been very hectic of late between my antenatal hospital appointments and the boys’ busy school calendar filled with trips and sports days plus their active social lives, there has been little time for a shopping trip. So to make life easier and save having to travel to a bigger town with more shops than we have in our town we have headed online for a summer shopping spree to get the kids a new summer holiday wardrobe.  

The boys love Debenhams’ kids clothing range, especially the vibrant bluezoo range which I love for its durability and high quality. As such my bank card was hit hard on the Debenhams website. But being a parent who loves to save money when possible I made sure to get my money’s worth and grab any bargains. Thankfully for us Debenhams currently have a sale on. Plus the beauty of shopping online is that I can use promo codes to save money. Thanks to I found the latest promo codes for Debenhams that included 10% off your first order (yay for me as I’ve never shopped online at Debenhams before and it worked on sale items too) and free next day delivery!

As the boys are super excited about getting their new summer clothes and I love a bargain I thought I’d share a few of their favourite purchases that they love the look of and that I was delighted were also on sale, helping me save money on the big expense of getting them a new summer wardrobe. 

Both of the boys are fans of the water and love spending their days at the beach or pool. As such swimwear is a must. Opting for sea themed swimwear they both picked shark print swimwear., bluezoo boys’ purple shark print swim shorts for T and bluezoo blue shark sunsafe swimsuit for keeping H covered up in the sun. Satisfying my love of saving money both were on sale at up to 20% off.

Ideal for summer T picked some bluezoo white and grey linen blend shorts and H loved the bluezoo 2 pack blue shark print shorts especially as he thinks the shark print is cool. Yet again I was happy that they were on sale with discounts of up to 30% off.

Both of the boys have a love for shirts and especially like wearing short sleeve shirts with shorts or skinny jeans during the summer. Plus the beauty of shirts are that they can be dressed up or down for a smart or casual look. They both picked some cool shirts when shopping online with T’s favourite being the bluezoo white palm tree cotton short sleeved shirt and H loves the vibrant bluezoo white dinosaur print cotton short sleeved shirt. To help us get more for our money, I was happy that the shirts they picked were up to 30% off.

Thanks to sales and using promo codes we saved money when get the boys a brand new summer wardrobe which helped us get more clothes for less money which is always handy when you are a family on a tight budget. Here’s hoping they don’t have another growth spurt for awhile especially as we’ve still got to kit them out with a few new items of school uniform for September.
