Shopping at the mall for Back to School clothes can be affordable in so many ways. For one, I always check the sales rack and bring my store coupons with me. This helps me save while shopping for my 3 kids at the mall on a budget. I recently visited the Tuttle Crossing Mall in Dublin, Ohio to do some Back to School Shopping for my 3 kids. We went to Macy’s, The Children’s Place, and Forever 21. Each of these stores were perfect for each of my kids at different ages.

We first stopped at Macy’s and they had a section of clothing that my teenage son loved. It the area they had different graphic tees and Levi fitting jeans that can be found in a variety of washes. He was able to pick up a pair of jeans and a shirt that were both on sale plus, I had a coupon for $10 off a $30 purchase.
My youngest son headed over to the boy’s department and found the character shirts that every 8-year-old likes. He picked out a Marvel T-shirt along with 2 pairs of Levis jeans in different colors, a camouflage belt, and a blue sweatshirt. Macy’s even carries school uniforms located in each of the kids departments.
There were so many great options at Macy’s to choose from. With 2 floors you can find anything from babies to adults. They even carry other necessary back to school items such as backpacks, shoes, and more. Be sure to check them out on twitter using the hashtag #MACYSBTS to see all the latest deals and promotions.
Our next stop was The Children’s Place. I am so glad that my son can still fit into the clothes at The Children’s Place because they are so affordable and good quality. Plus, I had a coupon for 20% off and the whole store was on sale. We were able to find several shirts in long and short sleeve and some that glowed in the dark. He was even so excited that they had Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle shirts and bought one. We also got several athletic pants on sale for $12 to go with the shirts and ended up getting quite a bit of clothes for a reasonable amount of money.

The last stop was at Forever 21 for my teenage daughter. All of the items in the store are reasonably priced.
