Mitten Kidz – Save Money by buying snow gear now for next winter

20120406-123444.jpgCalling all gear hounds. Just because winter is over it doesn’t mean you can’t still shop for it. Now is the perfect time to buy your MittenKidz their next winter’s outdoor wear and score some savings!

Most retail stores have already changed over to summer – but comb their sale racks in the back for winter wear on sale. (We just saved 40% with a find at Michigan-based Boyne Country Sports.)

Or, check out online retailers. Two of my favorite go-tos for toddlers and kids – backcountry.com and REI. Michigan-based Moosejaw is excellent, too – and I really love their corporate culture. Might just have to find a little something for myself…

Where’s your favorite place to shop for winter wear?
