Save That Money!

I’m sure you all try to save money, especially if you are a parent! Kids are expensive, am I right?! So I love finding new ways to save and still be able to do the things we want and have the things we need. And I found a new, awesome way!

Kids on 45th! You’ve got kids? You like to keep them clothed but also like to keep your money? Yeah, you need to check them out! 😅

This is a mama-founded company that’s all about helping mamas like you save money (yay!) and time (yes!) on your kiddos’ everyday clothes. They ship “surprise” boxes of gently-used (and some new with tags) clothes to moms around the country for super-low prices (items start at $1.99 and max out at $12.99 for a winter coat!).

They were so kind and generous to gift my boys a box to try. We are definitely going back for more.

My favorite part? That they customized the items to my kiddos. I could specify what we do or do not want and even what types of things or colors my boys like or don’t. We said we like camo and animals. And look what they sent! Spot on!!

They even have a ‘Happiness Policy’! They build a surprise box of clothes tailored to your kiddo’s style, but if there is ever an item you are not in love with, two taps on your device will get you a credit for the item.

I love the low prices. You can get quality kids clothes for cheap! They have sizes newborn to 14/16 clothes, all in excellent condition. Prices start at $1.99 for baby items and max out at $12.99 for big kid jackets! You get free shipping when you spend $65 too. And, there is no subscription needed and no styling fees. You get what you need ans that’s it!

I love that this saves me time along with money! No trip to the mall needed. Two minutes for online shopping was all that I needed. I didn’t have to search and scour at retailers, thrift racks, or pages cans pages online. No coupon hunting. And no gas spent. You don’t even have to get dressed. 🤣

One more plus? This is green! We all want to reuse and reduce are footprint here. This is another way!

So, my verdict? We are Kids on 45th shoppers for life. Truly. We are so tickled about our experience and cannot wait to make more orders!

Garage Sale Day Find

April 27, 2009 at 8:02 am (Uncategorized) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Garage sale day in our little town was Saturday!  This day has to be one of my favorite spring days.  Scouring someone else’s junk for that perfect treasure is  a great way to kick off the season.  I even got Tony in on the fun.  We didn’t find much to bring home with us, but a few treasures makes the day worth it.  We brought home a few vintage glass marbles and a couple large dice for the collection.  But here is our bargain beauty:

This is an antique set of mailboxes from a post office in Champagne Illinois.  I came back twice to check it out, and at the end of the day he said it was too heavy for him to carry back home, so he gave me a sweet deal!  It took two men to load it into my truck and we took the drawers out to get it into the house, but since it is on wheels it is easily movable in the house.  I love it right here in the kitchen.  The drawers were the perfect addition to the “landing strip” area.  Tony was thrilled to have his own drawer for his pocket junk.  I love its mismatched drawers, and the vintage numbers and letters above the handles.  I know, I know.  Some of you probably think this guy is tacky (my mom didn’t like it!), but we think its great.  And, the drawers are big enough to function in the house! Here it is in the landing strip area:

I’m not sure if the school desk should stay now or not.  But, for now, this is what the area looks like.  Suggestions?

Also- we did pick up one other thing at the garage sales, but that project will have to wait… 🙂
