I know. I know.  School is only a few weeks away for my kids and I should really be focusing on back to school deals and not splurging on something cute for myself.  The kids need all sorts of things for back to school from notebooks to new shoes to backpacks to clothes.  BUT… As I was shopping the back to school deals, I found a deal at Maurice’s which is one of my FAVORITE clothing stores.  How could I resist?  I found this deal on the website (20% off) for Maurices.  It is super easy to find deals there.  All you have to do is put the store name into their search bar and it will bring up all the ways you can save. There are deals with discounts, free shipping, and buy one get one sales.

My Style: Back to School Splurge for Me

I got the floral top above, a white lace camisole for underneath (since it’s sheer) and an adorable stretch floral filigree ring all for less than $50 shipped using the coupon code I found.  I love that even during back to school time I can find a way to splurge on myself.

  1. love the outfit and thanks for the tip about the clothing stores never thought to just type in the stores on

  2. Love, love, LOVE that top, Ellen!  That style looks good on me, too. May have to get my own. 🙂

  3. The 20% off JcPenny is great. My oldest gets most of her clothes there and I typically don’t find many coupons for them.

  4. 20% off in store at childrens place- i never have good luck with their clearance online but in store? YEP!! but i almost never have a coupon with me!!  

    AND i’m going today so i will be sure to print

  5. I’ve got to go with the $10 gift card at Amazon. Who can say no to FREE?

  6. Save 20% Off or 25% Off $200+ at JCP because we love to shop at JCP

  7. I like the Save an Extra 30% Off Clearance offer for Aeropostale. My kids usually wear summer clothes all the way until October, so I like to buy a few new summer items on clearance for back to school and this is a brand my son asks for. Thanks for the chance to win!

  8. I would also use Save 20% Off In-Store Purchase at The Children’s Place. My daughter always finds cute clothes there.

  9. 30% off clearance @ Aeropostale. My cousin loves clothes from there.

  10. I LOVE your top!
    I think the best coupon for back to school would be the JCP coupon for 20% off OR 25% off on $200 or more.  I’m sure even at JCP you could spend $200 or more on back to school stuff without breaking a sweat!

  11. I love the 20% off at JCPenney’s!

  12. Save an extra $5 off $45 at Kmart. I would use this coupon to buy some school clothes for my girls. I always hit up the clearance racks there!

  13. I like the $10/$50 at Office Depot, they have some great low prices already, and lots of bulk school supplies. I could really make that deal stretch!

  14. I like the Save 15% Off Kohls coupon, I have a gc that I will be using to purchase a new winter coat for my son, Thank you!

  15. Save 20% or 25% off at JCP…that’s a huge coupon, and you can already get great deals…so by the time I hit $200, I’d have a huge pile of stuff, and then save 20 or 25%? That would be a massive haul at a great deal!

  16. The Amazon Prime trial and $10 GC is a great code. I am a Prime member and love it!

  17. My fave coupon code would be the Kmart Save an extra $5 off $45. Kmart is close for my daughter at college and their Shop Your Way Rewards points are great!

  18. Joyce@MommyTalkShow says

    The Amazon code for free prime trial and a GC would be great for us. I’m using Amazon a lot more because I’ve received so many GCs as gifts. I’m thinking about getting a Kindle HD for our son too.

  19. Liza @ Views From the 'Ville says

    My favorite is a tie between the 20% off at The Children’s Place and 15% off at Kohl’s.  Both of them have great sales that you can pair with the coupons.  Kohl’s has clothes for our whole family, and The Children’s Place has so many items I love for Bubbles (their footed PJs are the only ones that will fit my tall girl!)

  20. I like the $10/$50 at Office Depot.

  21. I like the 15% off at Kohls and the free Amazon Prime trial…


    wow! I didn’t know that have store coupons now! AWESOME! I like the 15% Kohls. Actually I used this code Today with my $10 off $10 coupon to save even more in winter clothes for my kids, that were on clearance already! 🙂

  23. Save 20% at Barnes and Noble! We love Barnes and Noble and shop there all the time, so anything we can save is great.

  24. I like the Free Amazon Prime Trial & $10 Gift Card because i love having amazon prime and order a  lot from there

  25. First of all, I love that outfit on you! I have not been in a Maurice’s in so long…I don’t know why though. 🙂 I love that top you have on. I like the 20% at Children’s Place for my kid’s clothes. I also really like the Free Prime Trial & $10 GC for Amazon!

  26. the free amazon prime trial and gift card will be the best for us, since we homeschool, it will make getting materials ands books much easier, and cheaper with free shipping!

  27. I love the Kohl’s coupon. We have one near our house and I can always find some of the best back to school stuff for my kids. 

  28. Nicole Herman says

    The Tilly’s coupon code for 20% off an item because my son loves skate shoes even though he isn’t a skate boarder. He says “Mom it’s just cool! ” who am I to judge 🙂 

  29. Walmart one for me – it’s one of the only places we have to shop up here in the mountains. 🙁

  30. Patti Novero says

    Carters 50% off seems to be the best.

  31. I like the Kohl’s Cyber Sale – Save up to 50% Off Sitewide, plus an Extra 20% Off with Code. That’s a total of 70% off which is great.

  32. The Home Depot …30 % off.  When something is on sale and you can put 30% on top of that…that is huge savings!!  I could use a new toaster.

  33. Linda Stewart says

    For me the best deal would be The Children’s Place – Get $20 in Place Cash on your Next Order of $40+ … I’m caught in a last minute crunch for getting my grandson ready for back to school. We just found out he’s been accepted to the Pre-K program and school starts on Monday! He’s threadbare for school clothes and I usually always buy his clothes from Children’s Place.

  60. The Amazon Prime trial and 10.00 gift card. Just bought my husband his anniversary present from there….a tablet. That would have been a great deal.

  61. The best is the Famous footwear because school starting means new shoes and getting the 2nd pair for half off helps

  62. Tracey Taylor says

    I think this coupon is the best Buy 1 Get 1 50% Off & Save an Extra 15% Off because not only are you getting two pairs of shoes(one being half off) you get an additional 15% off which could mean possibly getting 3 pair for the price of what one pair may cost.

  67. Brooke Bumgardner says

    I think the Save 20% Off $100+ at Kohl’s coupon is the best because you can earn Kohl’s cash back to make your purchase go even farther.

  68. Brooke Bumgardner says

    Daily deal: Save 25% Off & Free Shipping at The Children’s Place . Entering on The Socialite’s Closet!

  69. Koh’ls 15% off.  I find bargains on clearance & match with coupons.
