What’s a frugally-minded mama who dislikes shopping to do when it comes to stocking her kids’ closets with back-to-school clothes?
Shop online consignment, of course!
Enter: Moxie Jean.
The online resale site focuses on baby and kid clothes. And a few weeks ago they asked me to give it a try and write about my experience.
I absolutely loved it.
1. I could shop from the comfort of my own home.
I didn’t have to leave my chaise lounge. That’s right. One reason I’ve never liked shopping is that I simply don’t like going to the store! It eats up gas and time, and it’s even more of a hassle with my girls in tow.
Shopping via Moxie Jean was a breeze because I could do it from the comfort of my own living room.
2. I didn’t spend a fortune.
Kids clothes can get pricey! I rarely buy things new, and clothing is no exception. Moxie Jean items are gently used (and sometimes new!), and they are 75% or more off retail price!
3. I love that shopping consignment helps reduce waste.
Moxie Jean is all about Reduce, Reuse, Recycle – they donate all unpurchased or lightly damaged items to The Kid’s Pantry in Chicago (where they’re based.)
4. I can easily make up the cash I spent by selling my gently-used kids’ clothing via Moxie Jean.
Each order comes with a free postage-paid Moxie Jean Mailer Bag. I am definitely using my mailer to send in clothes we no longer need!
5. I could involve my girls in the shopping–without risking melt-downs.
At 3 and 6, my older two girls still tire easily when we go to the store. This can (and sometimes does!) result in melt-downs.
For my Moxie Jean shop, I simply chose a few items I thought they would like and then let them sit with me at the computer and make the final selection themselves!
They loved it and eagerly awaited their Moxie Jean package to arrive in the mail! As soon as it came, they wanted to try on their new dresses and put on a fashion show!
My 6-year-old was so excited that she even wanted to wear her dress outside while she rode her scooter in the rain! I love this video of her because it embodies her personality to a T: She’s a girly tomboy all the way!
