gymboree clearance

A sweet friend of mine from Simply Delightful Moments recently sent me a $75 Gymboree gift card in exchange for some of the clothes that Bellamy Blue had grown out of. She is passing on the clothes to a set of triplets in her community, and I am thrilled to be able to pass on my daughter’s clothing this way.

I had a $25 off $100 Gymboree coupon from a Gymboree mailer, which was about to expire, so I combined the two for some extra savings. I think I missed out on the best Gymboree summer clearance, as I found much better prices a few weeks ago with a $5 Gymboree rewards certificate, but I still found some nice deals today.

One thing I have learned is that there is no point in buying dresses at Gymboree, not even on clearance, because it is difficult to get the price below $10 a dress, even after clearance and coupons. Instead I buy cheap Gymboree dresses at my favorite online consignment store, where I can get them for as low as $2.49 at times. They still look fantastic, and Bellamy Blue is very well dressed because of them.

Now, some things that I always love buying at Gymboree are bike shorts, leggings and tights, because I can get them in all different colors, and at much better quality plus price than anywhere else. Of course, I have to wait until they go enough on clearance, and I have to wait until I have a coupon, but then I stock up. I love dressing my little girl up every day, but I also want her to be comfortable enough to climb trees or play on the playground even if she is wearing a dress. So, I’ve made it my mission to have lots of bike shorts and leggings for her to wear under her dresses, so that she can be both fashionable and comfortable.

In anticipation of this Gymboree shopping trip, I decided to catalogue all of Bellamy’s clothing – yes that’s right – you “heard” me. I sat down, and wrote down everything my little girl has in her clothing boxes for future use. I divided it in by age, then I wrote down brand name, color and description. This really gave me a big oversight of what I need to buy, when I am out clearance shopping, and what she already have.

I have already been doing this with all of the kids’ shoes, and it really works great. It ensures that I always know what to buy, what we already have, and what we need. I keep an updated copy in my coupon bag, and it is such a big help, whenever I see a good deal.

  1. Wow, you got some great deals! Gymboree has the cutest clothes – but like you, I don’t pay full price when I shop there! 🙂

  2. The woman before me purchased 1 dress, 1 head band and a a pair of tights for $53!!! I don’t know how other people can afford to buy clothes at full price, but I sure know that we cannot. I am always amazed at how low the prices can get after clearance and coupons though – many of the prices were much better than I could find at Target on clearance.

  3. I love Gymboree clothes! But I disagree with you about the dresses. This week during the red balloon sale, I got dresses for my daughter for $3.03 each. Dresses were $3.99 – 20% coupon – 5% gymboree visa = $3.03. I got 16 dresses and two hair bows for $50 plus $25 in gymbucks!
