Frugal Family Finds the "Check it Out and Check it Off" Edition

The lists are mounting and you are desperate to start checking things off. Use this week's finds to fill in the box when you shop for children's clothing, outerwear, flu shots, groceries, plan a lunch date and get ideas for your new bathroom remodel.

1. Wear & Share -  Wheaton

Tis our second week of shoutouts to our favorite local resale stores. Check out Wear & Share Children’s Resale Shop for Upscale, quality, new and gently loved clothing, shoes, toys, books, and gear with name brands like Gap, Hanna Andersson, Gymboree, Mini Boden, Ralph Lauren, Naartjie and more. Wear and Share reminds us that consigning is also a great way to preserve, recycle and save money.  

Offer Good - Mondays thru Saturdays

2.  Sushimono – Wheaton

The Deal: Sushimono wants to remind you that eating locally is the best catch of all, and apparently the best place to practice your math. Order the lunch special "COOK BOX," which includes Shrimp Tempura Roll ($7), California Roll ($6), Spicy Octopus Roll ($7) and Miso Soup ($1). That comes to $21, but for lunch is only $12. Ask about the “lunch club” for more delicious deals.

Offer Good - Lunch

3. Dominicks Multiple Locations

The Deal: Two birds, one needle. Get your flu shot and save 10 percent on your next grocery purchase. Appointments can be made, but walk-ins accepted at participating Dominick’s pharmacies. Most major insurance plans are accepted. Age restrictions and some exclusions apply. See Pharmacy for details.

Offer Good - For a limited time

4. Hanna Andersson – Oak Brook and Online

The Deal: You can only be in denial for so long. Colder weather is coming and at least Hanna Andersson is doing their part to get your kids dressed for it. Visit the Cold Snap sale for 30 percent off outerwear and $20 off sweater dresses for girls.

Offer Good - Through Sept. 25

5.  The Kitchen Studio – Glen Ellyn

The Deal: The kitchen experts are expanding to the bathroom. The Kitchen Studio of Glen Ellyn recognizes that having a room that looks like a million bucks shouldn’t have to cost the same - amen to that. Visit the Glen Ellyn showroom on Thursday, Sept. 8 at 7:00 p.m. for a free seminar, “How to Save Thousands on a Designer Bathroom.” Learn how to make informed decisions and a few tricks of the trade to keep your budget on track. Refreshments will be served. RSVP to reserve your spot at (630) 858-4848.
