Well, as a person who hates to overpay for things, my tip would be don't buy your winter clothing in the fall when it is full price and just out. Now is a good time to pick up sales on sweaters and coats, hats and mittens (and ironically there is still a lot of winter ahead!). With kids, I buy their clothes for next winter now. I've found courdoroy pants for $3 and sweatshirts for $1.48 at Target.

I also recommend a fleece lined or other type of lined sweatshirt for those days when it is cold, but not cold enough for a winter coat outside.

I'd suggest buying long-john underwear, waterproof gloves, waterproof and warm boots (Merrill is fantastic), a down jacket, a nice comfy hat, and of course a good scarf. Layers are key, but a down jacket is icing on the cake. I sweat like mad with my down jacket, even in 10 degrees. So, underneath, I don't go crazy if I have my down jacket on and if I'm not out in the cold for long.
