With back to school, almost every mom in America does some back to school shopping. Even us home schoolers like to do this. While I am very thankful the land of fashion is not high on my boys list… since they don’t really have the same peer pressures as a public or private school child would face… the push to be in what is trendy, isn’t really high up on our boys list. I for one am SUPER thankful for that. That right there saves us a lot of money, haha… but I still do like for my boys to look nice on certain occasions.
I was introduced to a company called MoxieJean last month and was stoked to get to feature them on my blog.
MoxieJean offers unique, stylist clothes available for a wide variety of sizes (From Newborn up to size 13/14 Kids)… all marked down to about 75% off retail prices. All of their clothing is carefully selected and while some is used, it will never be sold with rips, stains or any real visible flaws. A lot of the items still have the tags on them as well.
You all know I am big on shopping thrift. I very rarely buy new… and when you have more than a kid or two and live on a budget, its a must. Sites like MoxieJean are a great inbetween. It offers the experience and freedom of shopping online. Free from stress and hassle of taking kids into department stores or malls… but also saves you a lot of money.
I got an outfit for each of my boys and snagged their “back to school photos” in the outfits chosen. Below is a look at what I got for each boy. All from MoxieJean!
Baby Reed – 22 mo.
I think the boys look very nice! Caleb who is my oldest did complain his shirt was TO BIG on him. He however is growing SO FAST I wanted to buy him a size up. He is really into sports style shirts right now… and this was the only one I saw listed, so I got it, despite it being a size 10… Hes typically a size 8/9. So sizing can be tricky I found if you have older kids.
If your child though is under age 10, there is a LOAD of clothing to choose from.
This site would be perfect for the new mom on bed rest during a difficult pregnancy. She could shop while resting and get her clothes delivered to her door before baby comes.
Another cool feature about this site, is that they will send you bags with pre-paid shipping labels on them. These bags you would then use to put clothing you no longer use, to ship to them in order to earn money to shop! I sent off a handful of baby Reed’s clothes that he no longer fit into. I look forward to using the money I earn to buy a few new items for him. Since he is the 4th born, he tends to get a little left behind in the area of new clothes. So its always a treat for me to buy him something new.
Now those of us who shop thrift like myself, we may not spend a lot on clothing each year… but did you know that this year’s press release from the National Retail Federation about Back to School spending has calculated: “shoppers will spend an average of $231.30 on clothes, up from $230.85, and $124.46 on shoes, up from $114.39 in 2013.” That’s $355 each family will spend on Back to School clothes!
MoxieJean will be giving away a Back to School Wardrobe gift card for $177.50 – the winner will be able to get a full back to school wardrobe for HALF of what it would cost new – even with all the BTS sales.
