Target vs. Gap

Today I was doing some online Christmas shopping for some little ones, and I thought clothes would be a good idea. These little ones have more toys than they know what to do with, so I thought this would be a nice alternative. (side note: I just wanted to get these little ones something simple and small.....cheap :-) )

My first stop on the web was at Gap kids. I have always thought they have super cute things, but I have never actually shopped there. I found it was really expensive. For example, I thought this sweater was super cute, until I looked at the price...it was $34.50. I rarely spend that much on my sweaters!


After that, I decided that I'm too poor for Gap kids, and I headed over to Target. There I found much more of what I was looking for. The above top is what I bought for the 4 year old, and it was was on sale for $6.29! You can't beat that! I also got a very similar shirt for her older sister. For the baby I got the shirt posted below for $5.59


Now, I know the Gap clothes are probably better made and will last a longer time than the Target clothes. However, kids grow so fast that I'm sure they will out grow the clothes before they wear out, even if they are from Target.

I just posted about going to Target today! I got my son 2 long sleeved sports shirts on clearance for 1.98! And they are really nice, thick cotton :) I like Target -- but I spent too much on other stuff!

Good choices on the gifts!
