I think teen agers just grow way to fast. Physically, mentally and emotionally. We were out jean hunting last weekend because Jade complained that she is down to a couple of jeans having outgrown the ones we just bought not more than a couple of months ago! We browsed through several stores, walked a few miles, and came home with nothing. That girls is getting so tall! She is 5'10 and growing. Most of the average jeans sizes are too short for her. So we decided to resort to shopping online although she did admit she will miss the 'feel' aspect of shopping.
The good thing is, if we shop online we can probably save a little more by using online coupons. For instance, Kohls coupon codes can save us 10-15%. Most of her favorite stores have online catalogs with accompanying coupons, so in the long run, we will not only save on gas, we also save on the sale itself!
