Back-to-school shopping doesn’t always have to involve strapping the kids in the cart and pushing it through the aisles of Target hoping to get out with school supplies in hand (and kids in one piece). What if we told you there’s an easy way to find adorable clothes at great prices, and your little ones can actually play in the store while you shop? Talk about a back-to-school deal of the century! Click through the slideshow to see our picks for getting the little ones looking cool for school.

Cory’s Closet

For those with preschool and elementary age children, Cory's Closet can supply every back to school item with their vast inventory of clothes, shoes, toys, books, and backpacks. This store is a great resource for those looking for specific hard to find items, as they offer a wish list for customers, and will notify shoppers when their items become available.

Best of all, Cory's Closet has a great play area, complete with toys for all ages, where kiddos are welcome to play while their parents tackle back to school shopping.

Before you visit in person, take a look at their website to catch up on their latest deals and discounts. They are a consignment store, so for those looking to unload last year's gently used school clothes, toys, and shoes, Cory's Closet will offer store credit or cash which can lead to bigger savings. Check out out their Facebook page or call beforehand to get the week's schedule for buy times.
