When it comes to preparing the kids for the new school year, we find that along with the school supplies that we as parents must also go through the closets and drawers, get rid of what no longer fits and make a list of what the kids will need when it comes to the clothing in the new school year. Like many parents, I find that this whole process can be quite a task, I mean, I have to go through quite a bit of clothes, look at the sizes, have kids try on various items, make a pile of keepers, one of items they can no longer wear, then also make a list while doing all of this of how many pairs of pants we will need to get, how many shirts, sweaters and jackets as well. I also find that even after I have done all of this, that I look over to see bags and bags of clothes that I might say I will sell in a garage sale, but know deep down that I do not have time for that and know that those clothes will most likely sit there and join the clothes from prior years as well. So when I learned about Swap.com a few years ago, I found that I can avoid that dreaded pile up of gently used clothes in my garage, as well as the issue of trying to find the clothes the kids need and stay in the budget we have set, by utilizing Swap.com for both selling and buying clothes for my entire family!
See with Swap.com, I can go on at any time of the year when I have clothes to get rid of that my family and I no longer wear, go to my account, print out a shipping label, box up the clothes I want to send in and ship them off. When my box arrives, I can track the process of the acceptance, price the items, list them and await for the emails to come in as my items sell. I can then take that money I make on Swap.com and use to purchase both new and gently used clothes for my entire family that includes the pants the kids need and seem to go through quickly, the sweaters and shirts we all need and even those jackets we might need as it gets colder out.
Then say I am just needing to get some of that back to school shopping done and want to find those brand names that the kids want but do not want to spend so much, I can do that too! Because when I shop at Swap.com, I can shop for those brands we love and get the looks we are after at 80-90% off retail! Making the choice to both consign and shop at Swap.com, a choice that is very family budget friendly and also a choice that can help to save me time while both saving and making money! And right now you can save even more when you use code 25bts, for 25% off of a $30 purchase at Swap.com and you can get free shipping on your first order of $10 or more!
This sounds like a perfect places for so many mothers to deal with. A lot of my nieces kids clothes barely get wore before they are out grown. One niece has a girl and a boy so no wear each others. Passing this information on to them

40 years ago Swap was called 'what do the cousins need that we have'. Looks like a great way to swap clothes.
