Rohan started a 1/2 day program at the local Montessori school this week. He loves it so far, and I’m glad. I’ll have a full post for you soon on the homeschool/montessori plan we’re doing with him (and Kaya). Today though, I have to share with you about Rohan’s first online back to school shopping experience to get his “cool new school clothes.” (his words)
I had $50 to spend on a few pieces for Roey, and combined with the great back-to-school sales on OshKosh’s website and coupon code we got a ton for that budget. (PS I have a coupon code for you at the bottom of this post!)
Rohan has never shopped online with me before so I brought up the site and told him he could choose the items he liked as long as it was a mix of tops, bottoms and a pair of sneakers. He was excited, and being my son, immediately pointed to a jacket…that would have blown our budget. …. I then went to the sale page and told him to choose again. Ha!
You already know I view everything as homeschooling, and everything as a learning opportunity…so….
I turned it into a concepts lesson of less vs more, along with themes of budgeting and a little adding too! Rohan would choose a piece he liked, I’d tell him the price and he’d decide if he wanted to add it or not. I gave him the tally and how close we were to our $50 maximum. We did a lot of less money vs more money comparisons. #learningthroughshopping
Here’s what he picked:
He did a good job! I was happy with this and I added a few pieces:
Rohan also picked out a pair of shoes, but they didn’t have his size so we found an alternate pair in similar color (but the ones he originally picked out were way cuter…I’ll admit it.)
And for a total only 8 bucks over our budget he has a good base of items he can mix and match for school.
Judging from Rohan’s picks, he’s kinda got a surfer dude/preppy clothing style. I had to add a little sporty stuff into the mix. He wasn’t too happy modeling it for me.
He looks adorable in it all though. And of course it’s Osh Kosh so the quality is great. (His overalls are Osh Kosh and they were actually hand-me-downs that were already handed down twice before coming to him, and they still look brand new.) I tried to bribe him to take more photos so I could get a smile out of him. Nothing worked… Then Kaya came over and elicited this:
(don’t be fooled, they were fighting again shortly after)
