Transcript

00:00
– Hey everybody, I am Melea, from the Melea Show.
00:02
So, today we are going back to school clothes shopping.
00:05
I know all of us moms are looking for ways
00:07
to save money on all of the clothes for all of our children.
00:10
Today I have Rockwell with me, Rockwell are you there?
00:13
– Hi.
00:14
– Hi, you see him back there?
00:16
He is my little buddy today.
00:17
We are gonna go shopping for him.
00:19
And JCPenney has actually sponsored this video,
00:21
they gave me $100 and said, go in our stores,
00:24
we want you to buy at least 10 items,
00:26
we want you to come up with at least
00:27
five outfits, for under $100.
00:30
Do you guys think I can do it?
00:32
I’m pretty sure that I can, and in fact,
00:34
I actually think I can do better than that
00:36
because I have JCPenney coupons with me.
00:39
JCPenney has coupons on their website all of the time.
00:42
That you can either use online,
00:43
or printout and use in the store.
00:45
So, I’m pretty sure I’m gonna be able
00:46
to stretch that $100 even further.
00:48
So, let’s head in and go shopping.
00:50
And we’re gonna show you guys all of the things
00:51
that I buy for back to school clothing for Rockwell.
00:55
And right now, while you guys are watching the video,
00:57
comment below, tell me how many pieces of clothing
01:00
you think I’m gonna be able to buy for $100.
01:02
Let’s see who’s the closest.
01:04
(upbeat electronic music)
01:28
– Buying a lot of stuff, and shirts,
01:30
and pants, and flip flops.
01:38
– All right guys, we did it.
01:40
We went shopping, we have three bags full of clothing,
01:43
definitely more than 10 items for $100.
01:45
And that’s including tax.
01:47
So, we’re gonna go home, we’re gonna show ’em
01:49
all the cool stuff you got, right?
01:50
– Yeah.
01:52
– And show you guys exactly how we saved,
01:53
some of the deals are crazy.
01:55
Show you the coupons that we used.
01:57
All that jazz, so you guys can do some
01:59
amazing back to school shopping for your kids
02:00
and save a ton of money.
02:02
Because Rockwell grows like a weed.
02:05
And, I don’t ever wanna spend a lot of money
02:07
when it comes to kids, (laughing)
02:09
when it come to my kids because they grow
02:10
outta stuff too fast and you don’t wanna
02:12
waste money on clothes they only wear a few times, right?
02:14
You don’t understand the weed comment?
02:15
– No, I’m not a weed.
02:18
– ‘Kay, let’s go home, and I’ll show
02:19
you guys everything that we got.
02:21
All right guys, we are back.
02:22
I literally have three bags full of clothing.
02:25
We scored out, like we made out like bandits.
02:28
I’m not even gonna lie.
02:29
And I’m really surprised because I haven’t
02:30
been to JCPenney for a long time
02:32
and they really exceeded my expectations so,
02:34
I’m excited to show you guys the deals that we got.
02:36
So, you guys can score amazing
02:38
back to school deals for your kids too.
02:40
All right, let start with the basic tees.
02:42
I love basic tees, I love v-necks.
02:45
I think it makes little boys look like little men,
02:47
I don’t know, I think they’re just so cute.
02:49
So, we picked out, well Rockwell picked out the colors
02:52
that he likes, so we have this coral color,
02:54
we have a green color, he said this one’s his favorite,
02:57
the green one, we have a blue one.
03:00
And all of these were $12 normal price, so they’re $12.
03:04
We also got a baby blue one, and then we also have,
03:08
they have striped colors as well.
03:10
This one was $17 normally.
03:12
They were on sale for 4.99 each.
03:14
You guys 4.99, so five bucks each, right?
03:18
But, then I was able to use a coupon,
03:20
so we’re gonna talk about the coupons.
03:22
If you go to JCPenney’s website, you will see coupons
03:25
at the very top on their website, you can click on it,
03:27
and it will show you all of the available coupons
03:29
that are available right then.
03:30
You guys can print off anything you want
03:32
and use it instore at JCPenney.
03:33
So, I was actually able to use a 10 off $25 coupon,
03:36
which ended up making these three bucks each.
03:41
You guys, three bucks per shirt!
03:44
Honestly, I could’ve purchased a ton more of shirts
03:47
and probably stretched my $100 budget way further.
03:50
But, I wanted to show you guys a variety of products
03:52
in case you didn’t wanna just get t-shirts,
03:55
and just tons of t-shirts,
03:56
maybe you wanted a few other things too.
03:58
Next up are shorts.
04:00
These were normally $22, and I like these
04:03
because I can do some colorblocking things with them.
04:06
Here’s another option.
04:08
I really like colorblocking, I think it’s
04:09
a really easy way to dress when there’s lots of solids.
04:12
It’s easy for the kids to get dressed too.
04:14
So, these shorts normally are $22,
04:16
they were on sale for 9.99, plus with our coupon
04:20
it dropped the price to 6.67, what?
04:24
Yeah, so, we have some shorts.
04:26
And they have these in lots of colors,
04:28
but again, I wanted to show you guys
04:29
a variety of different types of clothing and things.
04:31
So, or probably honestly, I probably would’ve
04:34
just gotten like a ton of different colors,
04:37
because I like colors.
04:38
These black cargo shorts, they’re normally $30,
04:41
they were on sale for 10 bucks, and then with our coupon
04:43
again, it made them only 6.67.
04:46
You guys, these prices are crazy, crazy.
04:49
Do you guys see the difference with the coupon.
04:51
You gotta use the coupons you guys.
04:53
And then, our last pair of shorts that we purchased,
04:55
you have to go with a khaki
04:56
because it goes with everything.
04:58
Normally $32, on sale for 9.99,
05:01
and again, with our coupon they ended up being 6.67.
05:05
What?
05:06
Am I blowing your mind yet guys?
05:07
I hope so.
05:08
I’m so surprised.
05:10
I wasn’t expecting JCPenney’s prices to be this good.
05:13
When they challenged me to do the $100 challenge
05:15
for all of the back to school clothing outfits,
05:18
I went, okay, I’m pretty sure I can pull this off.
05:20
I’m good with money, I’m good with coupons, I can do this.
05:23
But then, once I got in there, I was like,
05:24
oh my goodness, the deals are amazing.
05:26
I’m gonna get way more than I thought I was.
05:28
So, we have three pairs of shorts,
05:30
we have five shirts so far, we’ve got a lot.
05:33
And, we’re not even close to being done.
05:35
So, I had to get a pair of jeans.
05:37
I like skinny jeans on my kids, or straight slims.
05:43
They have all their fits too, like for husky,
05:45
they have relaxed fit, they have, I mean,
05:47
they have every single type of fit you want there.
05:50
But, these jeans are normally $40, they were on sale
05:53
for 20, and the final price ended up being $16
05:56
and 82 cents, so that’s a huge drop
05:58
from what they typically are.
05:59
Also, in order to hit my $100, I had to go get
06:01
one more shirt, we got pink, Rockwell loves pink.
06:04
I think he looks so cute in pink,
06:06
especially with his little tan.
06:07
So, that’s another 4.99 shirt,
06:09
just like the ones I showed you a few minutes ago.
06:11
So, now we’ve got six shirts
06:13
in our collection for back to school.
06:15
Flip flops were on sale, so we were able to get these
06:18
for 2.99, normally eight bucks.
06:21
So, at this point we had about 40ish dollars left.
06:24
And I was like, okay we need like a real pair of shoes.
06:28
Flip flops are great, and he’ll be able to wear those,
06:29
but it’s gonna get cold, and wanna make sure
06:31
we have like good quality shoes.
06:33
Shoes that he’s gonna be excited to wear,
06:34
that he can, that he’ll just love, right?
06:37
So, JCPenney’s sells a lot of brands
06:40
like Converse, Vans, Nike, we love Nike in our family.
06:45
So, I got Rockwell some Nike’s.
06:47
Now this takes up a big amount of our budget from that $100.
06:51
These were normally $50 and we got them on sale for 43.
06:54
Nike is hard to find on sale,
06:56
typically you can’t use a coupon on them.
06:58
But, on my receipt it actually let me use the coupon.
07:00
So, it took off six dollars, that was cool.
07:03
So, these shoes actually ended up being $36,
07:05
instead of 50, which is amazing.
07:07
So, let me show you guys what they look like.
07:09
I mean, they’re adorable, right?
07:11
So, so, so, so, so cute.
07:13
Could we have spent more money on clothes?
07:14
For sure, like and if you didn’t need shoes,
07:16
like a good pair of shoes for the year,
07:18
for the school year, you could’ve purchased
07:20
double the amount of clothes that we grabbed.
07:22
So, all in all, I think I have 12 items.
07:25
And, this is the most expensive item by far,
07:28
just because Nike’s such a high end brand.
07:30
But, we really wanted something that would last.
07:31
But, with all of the crazy deals that we got
07:33
on everything else, I mean, literally,
07:35
you guys probably could’ve doubled
07:37
what we purchased, without the shoes.
07:38
You guys could’ve gotten 22 items, instead of 11.
07:41
And, like really, really stocked up your closet.
07:44
And just so you guys know, we hit $100.
07:46
I wanna say it was like $101.
07:49
And that included all of our tax too.
07:51
So, if you guys have a similar budget,
07:53
or maybe if your budget is a little bit less, that’s okay.
07:56
Seeing the deals that we got today,
07:57
should totally help you guys know exactly what to get.
08:00
I would definitely recommend going to JCPenney
08:01
after all the cute boy stuff that I saw.
08:03
Oh, and before I forget, so some of you guys
08:06
might have kids who go to a charter school,
08:08
who go to a private school, my kids go
08:10
to a charter school, so they wear uniforms.
08:11
So, you guys are probably like, why did you do
08:13
this back to school haul if your kids have uniforms?
08:16
Well, my kids wear regular clothes the rest of the time.
08:19
So, they still need back to school clothes.
08:22
And, I definitely wanna score
08:22
all the back to school clothing deals.
08:24
And they need uniform deals.
08:26
So, I actually saw a ton of uniforms at JCPenney.
08:30
Lot’s of different styles, skirts, skorts, jumpers,
08:34
pants, shorts, all of the polos in every color.
08:37
So, if you do have kids that need uniforms
08:38
for back to school, still go to JCPenney,
08:40
still use the coupons, and get like
08:42
a better deal than anywhere else.
08:43
All right, now it’s time to get technical.
08:45
So, I know I was supposed to come up with
08:47
five looks for back to school.
08:49
But, because I went with clothing that can be intermatched,
08:52
I know we have way more than five outfits.
08:55
So, khakis go with all of these shirts.
08:58
So, we have one outfit, two outfits, three outfits,
09:02
four outfits, five outfits, six outfits.
09:06
Now, these cute shorts won’t go with all my shirts.
09:08
So, we have, this one works, seven,
09:13
this one works, eight, this one works, nine,
09:21
and this one works, 10.
09:23
The jeans go with all of the shirts.
09:25
So, we have 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16.
09:33
And, you can wear all of these with black shorts too.
09:34
So, we have 17, 18, 19, 20, 21.
09:39
This one doesn’t really go with black,
09:40
so we’ll keep that one out.
09:41
So, 21 and of course, he could wear the flip flops,
09:45
or he could wear the Nike’s.
09:48
So, 21 outfits you guys, 100 bucks.
09:51
With shoes, legit shoes from Nike.
09:54
I think I did really good, what do you guys think?
09:56
Would you guys have shopped similarly,
09:58
would you have done it different?
10:00
Let me know what you guys think.
10:01
I don’t know how many of you guys
10:02
shop at JCPenney on a regular basis.
10:03
Maybe I’m the only one who has been dropping the ball,
10:05
and hasn’t been shopping there regularly.
10:06
So, gonna change my ways ’cause they had
10:09
super cute girls stuff too.
10:10
So, I’ll have to go back for Devin
10:11
and see what I can find for her.
10:13
Thank you so much for watching.
10:14
I hope you guys can use these deals,
10:16
and tips, and maybe even copy my shopping trip
10:18

10:20
