Saving Money on Kids Clothing

 *This post is brought to you by Kindermint.

Kids can be so hard on clothes. My son, especially, has a knack for getting holes in his jeans, stains on his shirts, and for losing socks. As I’m sure you’re aware, clothes cost money, especially the nicer ones, and we all know that money doesn’t just grow on trees. It can be quite frustrating when my kids come home with another ruined piece of clothing.

All of the above is why I sometimes like to buy used clothing for my kids. I would much rather pay $5 for a pair of jeans that are going to get muddy and holes in the knees than $20 for the same pair. Kindermint is a unique kid’s consignment store, because all of their sales happen online.

Online shopping with Kindermint is so convenient! I love that there are so many ways to search for something in particular. You can narrow your search by size, color, brand, and price, etc. My favorite of these is the length option. While it can be difficult to tell sometimes the length of a girls dress online, Kindermint makes it easy by allowing you to search for regular dresses and skirts or long dresses and skirts.

Using a budget of $50, I was able to purchase 9 pieces of clothing, including one dress that still had the tags on it! I can’t name one retail store where that would be possible. Each piece was in good condition and some of it was like new. In all, I was able to find 3 pairs of shorts, two pairs of jeans, 3 tops, and 2 dresses. These are decent brands too. I got a mix of clothing brands, including Osh Kosh, Old Navy, and Children's Place. To say I’m impressed with both my shopping skills and Kindermints selection would be an understatement.

In addition to selling clothes, Kindermint will also take your gently used children’s clothing to sell for you. We all have some of those items that children have grown out of too quickly, or was given as a gift, and wasn’t to taste. Instead of letting it sit in the closet getting dusty, Kindermint will sell it and give you a cut of the profits. It’s a win-win all around.

I can already say that Kindermint is a place where I will be returning to when I have need of clothing for my kids. Why would'nt you shop where you can get a bargain and you can great clothes?
