What to buy i n the kids’ section
Tip of the week...
▪ Clothing is much cheaper when it’s sold as children’s wear, even when it’ll fit an adult. Women up to size 8 can buy boys’ tees and tank tops, and diminutive shoppers can branch into jeans from Gap Kids and even winter coats from brands like The North Face.
▪ Shoes for kids run narrow, but a lot of women can handle the crossover, which can mean big savings. To get the length right, use size conversion charts like the ones at Zappos.com.
▪ Furniture and other décor items, such as rugs, lamps, and wall art, can be really cute—and more affordable—when they’re marketed for kids. Try Pottery Barn Teen or Target’s Pillowfort line.
▪ A smartwatch doesn’t have to be super smart to be used for receiving calls when you’re out running or hiking. Consider the $79 GizmoPal 2 from LG a discount Apple Watch, and your gateway to toy-style tech.
