You are going to love today’s tip!
I’ve already mentioned how important the Christmas season is to our family. Because of this, each year all the women in the family go out shopping in order to debut new dresses at Christmas. Of course, this includes purchasing clothes for babies and children, too. I, for example, am already planning what my kids will wear for our family celebrations.
And it’s not only the big celebration we get dressed up for, because we’ll have a chance to take family photos, too, and, well, the boys always look very dapper this time of year!
But, let’s admit it, this can all be a little costly, right?.
So what would you say about a site where you can get fabulous upscale clothes for babies and kids for a just a fraction of the cost?
If you’re looking for kids or baby clothes for special holiday occasions like parties, holiday portraits, Christmas eve, church services, Christmas pajamas, family gatherings, or even clothes for playing in the snow, you’re really going to like this.
A couple of weeks ago I visited MoxieJean.com and it really impressed me. It was founded by two moms who are sisters, Sharon Schneider and Sandra Pinter, who wanted to save time, money and the planet without sacrificing style.
So they created this world where you can buy a stylish selection of like-new kid’s clothes at consignment sale prices. Two things really caught my attention: First, there is a landing page in Spanish with information about how to buy and how to get the best offers; and second, you can sell your own used like-new clothes to them and make some money! Just ask for a free pre-paid bag.
As for me, I was searching for two things in particular, pajamas for my younger boy to wear on Christmas Day, as I expect we will be passing most of the day at home (and frankly, the pajamas he has now were looking a little more holey than holy). He’s grown recently and all his clothes look like he’s wearing “highwaters.” The second thing I was looking for were a shirt and trousers for my older son to wear at Christmas.
In the end, I bought two pairs of trousers and a green shirt for him and the pajamas for the little guy. I got fantastic prices. Not only that, when I opened the box, which arrived in just two days, I was pleased with the excellent condition of each item. Look what I bought:
1 pair of khaki pants by Old Navy $8.99
1 pair of cargo pants by Gap Kids $9.99
1 dress shirt by Izod $8.99
1 pair of pajamas by Children’s Place $6.99
The final tally was just $34.96 which would have cost about $85 at retail pricing, a savings of nearly 60%!
MoxieJean is very easy to navigate, you can search by boy/girl and then by season, brand, tops, bottoms, special collections etc., and they have a wide variety of items. Plus, the really exciting thing is that every week you can find more and more.
Some of the brands they have include Gymboree, Gap, Tea Collection, Hanna Andersson, Children’s Place, Mini Boden, and Baby Lulu, plus designer brands like Oilily, Mayoral, DKNY, Burberry, Ralph Lauren, and Juicy Couture, among others, all at prices up to 70% off.
Other features I like about the site is I can shop 24/7/365, of course, and there is free shipping when you spend $50 (or $5.95 on everyday shipping), plus get 20% off your first purchase when you sign up for the New Inventory Alert email.
