    I buy my coats, my husband's and my son's at the thrift store. I have gotten my daughter some at discount stores like Ross.

    I have bought my share of coats for the kids from thrift stores. My best ever deal though was a top quality wool dress coat from Land's End that I bought in 1989 for $60 and I am still wearing it! Can't beat that!

    Re: Best Deals on Coats?

    I had wanted a black wool coat, kind of like a navy pea-coat, for quite some time. By being very patient, I was finally able to find one in great condition at a garage sale. For ONE DOLLAR.

    This was probably my greatest frugal find, ever. I usually look for coats at the thrift shops and most of the time I just have to make do with something I'm not wild about. I figure -- it's there to keep you warm, not necessarily to be the most stylish thing ever.

    Depending on what you are looking for, if it's a something nice, you might be able to find a good deal at Macy's sales. You can sometimes find a 40 to 50% discount and use a coupon on top of that, which will give you another 10 to 15% discount. Burlington Coat Factory also has discounted coats, which I have found need dry cleaning, so look for a low cost dry cleaners so as not to add to the cost of the coat. Old Navy also has deeply discounted coats at the end of the season if you can wait that long. I found a trench coat there a few years ago for $7.00. I've also found that if you let other people know what you are looking for sometimes someone will come up with what you need from their own discards, it might be something you like.
