When I first became a mom, I remember splurging on clothes for my new little girl. I wanted only brand new products and cringed at the thought of used clothes or hand-me-downs. Fast forward almost five years and I have completely changed my way of shopping for kids products.
I have always been a frugal shopper – stalking the clearance racks at department stores, but I end up buying products that I’m settling for just because they are on sale. Instead of buying a couple of pieces that I truly love, whether they’re for the kids or myself, I always go for quantity over quality. In fact, I was just talking to my best friend about this. Our topic of conversation was “do you ever notice how you value something more if you pay more for it?”
On the other side of things, shopping brand new can be expensive. Kids outgrow their clothes so quickly and it sickens me to think of how much clothing we’ve gone through in the blink of an eye. I often find myself browsing through designer sites wishing I could afford their products and clothing for my family. Sometimes I just want my kids to wear something different than their friends. Sometimes I’m just sick of Target and Old Navy clothes for my girls.
Shopping Resale Boutiques vs. Department Stores
I’ve seen countless resale clothing boutiques online over the years but most of them are poorly organized, difficult to navigate and unreliable when it comes to receiving your products. Yes, I’ve had a few bad experiences. I was just introduced to La-MA-Rang and I was very impressed at what they had to offer. They have crazy-discounted designer kids’ clothing that look to be in really good shape.
Not only can you shop used kids clothing on La-MA-Rang, you can also sell your gently used kids’ clothes to help recoup some of your hard-earned money.
Here’s how La-MA-Rang works…
