Save on Kohl's Baby Day Sales!

It’s no secret that I love Kohl’s

Actually, if I’m being honest, almost all of our entire family’s wardrobes come from Kohl’s. It’s just so darn affordable and convenient–I ordered all of my daughter’s school uniforms from Kohl’s, along with my other daughter’s preschool clothes, and was able to find great clothes for my husband for work. I am a huge fan of shopping online, because I can always return clothes if they don’t work out, and I literally also have Kohl’s cash and a coupon on hand to use.

So, now that we’ve established how fabulous Kohl’s is, let’s get down to the task at hand–combining my two great loves: Kohl’s and baby items! Starting tomorrow, Kohl’s is kicking off their “Baby Day” sales and you can save on a ton of great products for baby. Click through to check out some of the great sales going on!

Usually, when people find out that my son is two, I get the typical sympathetic head shake. “Oh man,” they will say. “You have got your hands full.”

It’s no surprise that my son is a very busy guy indeed. I love being a mom to a boy, but I will tell you straight-up and honestly, he exhausts me in a way that my daughters never have.

5 Things on My Dream Baby Registry

I am so thankful that baby registries exist, because without one (along with the generosity of friends and their hand-me-downs!) we wouldn’t have had many of the important baby gear items we needed for our daughter when she arrived. Swaddle blankets, bottles, binkies, and even diapers were all given to us, and it was wonderful!

With our second child, I didn’t register, because we already had most of the things we needed, but if I were creating a dream registry wish list, there are a few unconventional things I would include…
