FASHION: Fall Shopping for Kids is Easy and Affordable at #CookiesKids #Cbias

My son is loving his new Rocawear outfit from
Outfit your Kids for Less at and save an extra 10% until 11/30...

For weeks now I have blogged about my son's growth spurt over the summer and how I had to pretty much purchase him a whole new wardrobe.  Yep, the cute kid is now looking more like a young man everyday.  I've had to purchase all new jeans for his long legs and new uniform pants for school.  He even outgrew his winter coat so a new one is now hanging in his closet waiting for snow and sleet.

A growing kid can never have too many clothes so I was very glad when I was given the opportunity to purchase a few items to round out my son's fall wardrobe on Cookies

Cookies Kids is celebrating their 40th anniversary this year.  The business was started back in 1972 by a young man named Cookie and his brother Marvin who went into business together in a small 1600 square foot store in Jamaica Queens, NY. By the late 1990's that small store grew to six superstores throughout the NYC area. Also in the late '90s Cookie's Kids' added school uniforms to their inventory and the success of the uniform sales paved the way for founding in 2007.

Savings on Top of Savings...
I first learned about Cookies Kids back in August of 2011 when they were featured on 'The Balancing Act' on Lifetime Television. During the show, Al Falack, the Senior Director at showed parents how to buy their kids a complete set of school uniforms for less than $100 total.  During the show, I learned that prices for school uniform pieces are as low as $3.99 for polos and $8.99 for uniform pants on

What is also great about is on top of the low prices, they also have coupon codes available for FREE shipping and/or extra percentage off the total price - and you know how much I like savings on top of savings.

The website is easy to use...
I was given a $30 credit to shop at and since my son's school uniforms were all taken care of for this year, I decided to look for a casual outfit for him to wear this fall and winter. Nagivating the website is very easy.  I simply used the nagivation bar at the top of the CookiesKids website to go to the Boys Size 8-20 clothing.

My son has outgrown all of his hoodies so I took a look at some of the hoodies on The website had a nice selection with prices as low as $9.99.  Then I found a great bargain in a Rocawear Sweatsuit for $29.99, 58% off the retail price.  I have bought my son Rocawear clothing before so I know from experience that the clothing is very well made and comes out of the wash looking great every time. This particular Rocawear Sweatsuit comes in three different colors - Gray, Blue and Black. I fell in love with the gray color because it will mix and match with a lot of the clothing that he already owns.

Finally, reasonably priced SOCKS!!!
One other thing my son needed was more black dress socks for school. Socks just seem to disappear in our house and I hate buying them because they are so pricey. But I found I could buy 3 pair of dress socks on for only $3.99 so I made sure to add a pack to my shopping cart.

Before I check out of any online store, I always do a internet search to see if I can find a coupon. And I was able to find a coupon code for 10% off my total Cookies Kids purchase. While I was checking out my cart, I also received a great gift from Cookies Kids - a 1 year subscription to Parenting School Years Magazine for FREE with my purchase of $30 or more - SWEET!!! Shipping on is $5 per order no matter what you purchase which is a great if you are buying a lot of clothing at one time. - I will be back for more...
My order arrived in about a week and everything came out of the package looking nice, new and unwrinkled. As you can tell from the photos, my son is loving his new outfit from Cookies Kids and I am loving that all the items can be mixed and matched with the rest of his wardrobe. My entire Cookies Kids purchasing experience was great from start to end and I will be back in the future to purchase more items for my son.
