My American Girl Shopping List For May

So, I will be going to the AG Store again in May with my friend Emma for her birthday shopping spree and I have been trying to figure out what I’m going to buy. I finally got it all planned out and I thought it’d be fun to show you my shopping list!


Weekend Fun Outfit- $30


Easy Breezy Outfit- $28


Rainy Day Coat- $24


Plaid Party Dress- $30

And last, but not least-


The MAG with Layered black-brown hair and brown eyes!!! I decided it would be cheaper to get a doll that looks very similar to Jess, than finding a Jess online somewhere. Now, you’re all probably wondering what I’m going to name her, well I am naming her…….

ARWEN!! I’m not exactly naming her after Arwen in LOTR, but just because I think it really suits her. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’m not sure what her middle name will be just yet, any suggestions?

So, my total is $222.00 (plus I should try to have a little extra ๐Ÿ˜‰ )!!! I hope I can do it!

What do you think of my shopping list?

  • Oh wow! That’s a lot of stuff! I don’t know how you can manage all your dolls though, and get so many in one year! I think it would be hard for me to get so many dolls in one year, because I like them all to have pajamas, and then maybe an outfit or two, plus they need to get to know the other dolls.
    I think that the Plaid Party Dress is a great thing to buy, because honestly, I think they will probably stop selling it soon. I also really like the Weekend Fun Outfit, except for the little vest thing and the sandals. I love the jeans and the shirt! ๐Ÿ™‚ So are the clothes going to be mainly for Arwen, or just for everybody?

    • Yeah, it is! I know, I may be a little crazy, but I LOOOOOOOOVVVEE my dolls!! They are literally like family to me ๐Ÿ™‚
      That’s why I want to have a little extra money, so I can buy her some PJ’s. Maybe they’ll have cute Store Exclusive ones. Cause I have all of the PJ’s that are online right now, except for the I Love Pets, but I didn’t really like those for her. ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Aw, that’s sad. That is one of my favorites!
      Oh, really? I think the vest adds so much to it ๐Ÿ™‚
      Yes, that’s what I’m planning, but everybody will be wearing them ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • Hehe! I love dolls too! (If you didn’t notice) ๐Ÿ˜€
        You should buy the Polar Bear PJ’s for her, except for I don’t think they sell them anymore. Maybe they are on sale?
        Yeah, well, I don’t really have any evidence of it, but it seems like it’s been around for a couple years.

        • LOL! Yeah, I did ๐Ÿ˜€
          Oh, gosh, those would be SOO CUTE on her! Oh, I don’t know if they are… I’m gonna go check!
          *Goes to AG’s sale*
          They ARE on sale!!! For $18!! If only I could spend my money, LOL! ๐Ÿ˜›
          Oh, I see. Hmm.. I don’t know how long it’s been around. Either way I absolutely LOVE that outfit, hehe! ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Nice list! Almost everything I want when I go in August is on your list, except I’m not sure which doll I’m going to get, when it comes to dolls, I just like to cross that bridge when I get to it ๐Ÿ™‚
    Arwen is a really pretty name! It definitely suits her! And it’s most likely alot cheaper than a Jess doll.
    As for middle names, here’s a list:
    But for her middle name, I like to pick those according to their personality, like if she’s going to be sporty, then I’d go with a more rugged name, but if she’s going to be girly, then I’d do a more classic name ๐Ÿ˜‰

    • LOLOL! That always seems to happen whenever we tell each other our AG shopping lists! We always want the same things! ๐Ÿ˜›
      Oh, I’m complete opposite of that! Whenever I have enough money for a doll I go look at the dolls on the AG site ๐Ÿ˜€
      Thanks, I think so, too!

      Thank you so much for your name suggestions!! ๐Ÿ˜€
      Oh, that’s a good idea! Thank you!

      • LOL! That is true, and seeing each other’s list makes me want everything more ๐Ÿ˜›
        I used to do that too, but it just makes me want the doll more generally, but I will do that if I’m going to the AGP in a few weeks or something like that, but since my birthday is five months away, I’m trying to stay clear of AG for a while ๐Ÿ˜›
        You’re welcome! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Here are some middle names
    I’m going to ag place in May too!

  • Aww! Arwen is soo cute! You’re right, Jaclynn, she DOES look like Jess! I hope you can get enough money for everything. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Also, big news, after I get Rebecca in July, (who I’m saving up for) I’m immediately going to start saving up for Samantha! I love her so much, and when she was retired I was so upset. ๐Ÿ™ She was always one of my favorites, besides Kit and Molly. So, yay for Sam! ๐Ÿ˜€ Wish me luck!


    • Thank you very much! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Oh, that’s great! I’m so happy for you!! I know you will absolutely LOVE her! And Rebecca, too ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Don’t forget the in-store purchase with purchase sales and exclusives. The one set with the hat would pair perfectly with a few of the outfits you mentioned.

    • Oh, I forgot about that! Another reason why I should have a little extra money when I go ๐Ÿ™‚
      Thanks for reminding me!

  • I think her middle name should be Amber!

  • Definitely get the Weekend Fun outfit!!!! I went to the AG store last week and my friend got that outfit. It is soooooooo adorable!!!!!! My friend and I traded things so that I got the shirt from it!!!! IT IS THE CUTEST SHIRT IN THE WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DEFINITELY get it!!!

  • Hi Jaclynn!
    I just wanted to recommend the Weekend Fun Outfit, and the Easy Breezy Outfit.
    I have both, and I LOVE them!
    I kind of want to get the Rainy Day Coat, but I’m not sure.
    If you get ti, could you do a review on it?
    Good choice on Arwen!
    I have Jess, and I love her!

    • Thanks so much! ๐Ÿ™‚
      Of course! I’ll write it down, so I don’t forget ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Thanks again!

  • YAY! AG store shopping spree! WOOT WOOT! ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s awesome! What about Anna or Elsa for her middle name? (Uh, yea, I’m very obsessed with Frozen) Or since her name is Arwen, what about another name from LOTR? ๐Ÿ™‚

    ~Lydia~ <3

    • LOL! Yes, you are, and so am I! I actually wrote down Elsa for a first name idea, but that didn’t really seem to suit her ๐Ÿ™‚
      I was thinking that! In LOTR Arwen is called Arwen Evenstar and Arwen Undomiel, so I was thinking of Evenstar for her middle name. ๐Ÿ™‚

      • LOL! Wow I love the middle name Evenstar! I’d totally go with that if I were you. ๐Ÿ™‚

        LOL yes! I saw this really funny picture, it said,
        When someone tells me to stop my obsession with Frozen: and then it showed a picture of Elsa in the jail cell.
        Don’t you see? I CAN’T. I’m like oh my goodness that is SO me! ๐Ÿ˜›

        ~Lydia~ <3

        • Thank you! Yeah, I think I will! ๐Ÿ™‚
          Oh, my goodness!! I saw that picture and saved it!! I thought the EXACT same thing when I saw it! I’m so obsessed with that picture ๐Ÿ˜€ ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Ooooh, I love the Weekend Fun outfit, soooooo cute!!! That doll is really pretty too :). I think Arwen is a very pretty name. Maybe Lisa or Hannah for a middle name?

    Abigail โ™ฅ

  • I love your list!:) That’s a really pretty doll.:) (Though I think you can get Jess in very good condition for less than $100 on Ebay, if you didn’t know.;)) I love the name ‘Arwen’! But, lol, when I first read it I thought of the fish we used to have called Arwen, and I couldn’t think where the name came from, so it felt like a fish-name!:PXD

    • Thank you so much!
      Well, that’s probably true, but she would most likely not be in the best condition, plus I’d have to pay for shipping. I’d rather get a brand new doll that looks like her for a little over $100 ๐Ÿ™‚
      I do, too! Oh, my gosh! LOL! That is really funny! ๐Ÿ˜›

  • Oh wow! I hope you have fun on your shopping spree ๐Ÿ™‚

  • That is a gorgeous name, that is what I was going to name my doll Willow (Emily Bennett)! I love LOTR ๐Ÿ™‚ Great picks!

  • flora for a middle name would be good!

  • She is so pretty! How are you able to afford so many dolls and outfits?? Because I am trying very hard to save up for Rebecca, any tips and tricks??? :/
    And a little off subject…I am thinking about opening an AG Etsy shop because I sew most of ALL my AG doll’s clothes, so I have gotten really good at sewing! But, is it a lot of work trying to run an etsy shop?? I figured I would ask you since you have a lot of experience! ๐Ÿ™‚


    • P.S.I love that name! My favorite LOTR charterer is Eowyn! I haven’t read the books but I have seen the movies like 3-4 times! My older brothers showed them to me!

      • Thank you!
        That’s so awesome that you like LOTR! Yeah, the LOTR movies are THE BEST movies EVER!! At least for me, LOL! ๐Ÿ˜€

    • Well, I get all of my money from my Etsy shop orders. And plus right before we go to the AG store I have a craft fair, so hopefully that’ll bring in a lot of money ๐Ÿ™‚
      Hmmm.. Well, doing extra chores around the house is always good! That’s what I did when I was saving up for Annika! And maybe going through your old toys and selling the ones you don’t really think you’ll use again (if they’re not special to you ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). I hope this helps!
      Oh, that would be great for you!! And it would help bring in money, too!
      Well, the work is all in the set up, but running it isn’t work at all. You practically just list the items for sale and wait for the orders! The problem I have is working on my orders. It gets really hard to work on my orders when I have a TON! Right now I’m crocheting for an hour in the morning and then at night until it’s time for bed. It can get really stressful! And sometimes it feels like it gets in the way of other things I want to do. But I try my best to have a good attitude about it ๐Ÿ™‚
      I hope this answers your question!

  • How fun! I’m so excited for you, and I love the name Arwen! To be honest, my favorite middle names for her are those suggested by others, but I’ll throw some out:
    Elizabeth (I don’t think you have a doll named Elizabeth, but apologies if I’ve forgotten one ;))

    What AG Place are you going to? And, just curious here, is there a reason you aren’t getting any historical stuff? (Don’t take me wrong; I love many of the outfits on your list. ๐Ÿ˜‰ )

    • OOPS! I am SO sorry Jaclynn! I just checked and realized that one of your bitty baby dolls is named Elizabeth. I feel horrible about that! HUGE apologies for not remembering she existed. >.<

      • Oh, no, it’s totally fine! You don’t have to apologize! ๐Ÿ™‚
        I’m sure that it’s hard for all of you to remember ALL of the dolls I have. You don’t have to be sorry ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Thank you so much! And thank you for the middle name suggestions!!
      I’m going to the one in LA ๐Ÿ˜‰
      Well, I have mostly HC outfits and dresses and I’ve been wanting some more modern clothes for my dolls, so that’s why ๐Ÿ™‚
      Oh, it’s fine! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I think her middle name should be Grace.I think that Arwen Grace sounds good.

  • How about Arwen Jane Fox? I think that sounds really pretty. Good luck on earning all that money! ~Marble

  • I think Arwen Lissette sounds pretty. Or Arwen Renae. Or maybe you should give her a middle name that sounds Elvin. I hope you get enough money to get what you want.


  • Jaclynn, you should look on eBay for doll raincoats. I have seen a few in a very similar style to this pink coat and come with a hat, stockings and waistband/belt. They are a lot cheaper than this rain coat and come with more stuff. I thought I should let you know just in case you liked any of them, because then you could save some money. ๐Ÿ˜‰
