It’s time for spring shopping. The kids are begging for Abercrombie, Tommy and GAP. Your wallet says, “head to Walmart.” Even though you teach your kids that brands don’t define them, brand names really DO matter – especially to them. Is there a way to find stylish clothes and still stay within your budget?
Tracy Evans with Kid to Kid gives you great ideas for head-to-toe spring fashions and hot ideas for spring accessories.
Upscale children’s resale stores like Kid to Kid offer two great ways to save – buying and selling. You can find the brands your kids want at really low prices, and you can earn money selling the clothes they’ve outgrown that are still in great condition. (You can even earn a 20 percent premium if you “trade” their clothes and toys by taking your payment in store credit rather than cash).
Kid to Kid pays cash up front for everything they buy – including kid’s clothes and shoes up to size 14, toys, outerwear, dancewear, and baby equipment. Every item is carefully screened to make sure it is in like-new condition and current style so you can shop with confidence.
The prices at resale stores like Kid to Kid are usually a small percentage of the new cost. You’ll find GAP jeans that originally cost $35 for under $7 and Limited Too and Nike tops for less the $5. Coats start at under $8, and most shoes are less than $5. The savings really add up.
Each of the nine Wasatch Front Kid to Kid stores stocks about 10,000 different items, and most are priced under $5.00. Kid to Kid buys hundreds of items every day, so it pays to shop often – especially if you’re looking for certain brands. Teens should consider shopping at Plato’s Closet, which specializes in teen sizes.
Help the kids clean out their closets and identify item to sell. Don’t forget things like little brother’s toddler bed, or the neglected kitchen set. Call Kid to Kid to schedule an appointment, and let your kids earn part of the money for their new wardrobe. These new budgeting skills will be a great foundation for an exciting spring season.
