The $4 Old Navy Jacket...

Two years ago I bought Mason a $4 winter jacket at Old Navy. I was lucky that he wore it all last winter. When this winter came around, I thought of getting him a new coat but this $4 jacket was in such good condition, even after a whole season of wearing it, that I just didn't feel the need.

Fast forward to this afternoon. I picked up Mason at daycare, zipped up his coat and off we went. Half way down the street I noticed his jacket was starting to unzip. I wondered if I actually did it up all the way or not and then did it up again. A few steps later, I looked back down and it was down again. Broken zipper...arrrgh!!

I had to take him to the mall to find a new winter jacket. I didn't want to spend a whole lot because a)This jacket was only $4 and it lasted 1.5 seasons...where am I going to find that deal again?? and b)I like to buy new winter jackets at the beginning of the's just my thing!

Where to find a cheap jacket? Wal-mart!! Did they have any?? No of course not!! :/ Next stop The Children's Place...$34.99 for a jacket that felt as thin as a garbage bag. Not likely. Feeling defeated, with nowhere else to turn, I went to The Bay where I found a $20 jacket and earned 950 HBC points on top of that (woohoo).

It's not my favourite jacket ever...light grey with "fur" around the hood...but at least the zipper stays up!

Hello..this is my blog. I bought this fancy theme and I don't know what to write here just yet. Maybe one day remind me I have to write something inspiring here?


  1. For next time, before you buy a new jacket... I went through this with Dalton and found out for a minimal fee you can have the puller upper replaced with out tearing out the whole zipper and sometimes that is all it takes.

    I think at most it may have been $7
