When it comes to buying kids clothes, I avoid paying full price if at all possible! When I was pregnant with Aiden, I did a ton of garage sale and thrift shop shopping to buy gently used clothing to save money. I have such a hard time spending a lot of children clothes because they tend to outgrow them so quickly and/or stain them the first time that they wear them. To be honest, spending a lot of money on clothes for myself is tough too. I’m accident prone (aka, I stain my clothes all the time) and with two little ones, wear and tear on my clothes is inevitable and usually happens quick.

As our family grew and our kids have become more mobile, it’s been more difficult to scour garage sales and thrift stores for clothes. Thankfully, I found a solution to the lack of time and effort it takes to continue my thrifting ways: Swap.com! Swap.com is the largest online consignment and thrift store and they have clothing for everyone! With easy search options, finding new digs is super easy. Plus, you save so much money that you can splurge on a few extra items. 😉
You can browse through millions of pre-owned and new items, such as clothing, shoes, accessories, toys, and so on. The prices are incredible affordable and they have constant sales and discounts (read below for a special discount code for YOU)! With hassle free returns and free shipping on your first order, you really can’t go wrong.
I was in dire need of some new spring and summer tops and was able to find a ton that I absolutely adore. These tops are perfect for casual day dates, taking to my upcoming BlogHer17 conference, and for outings with the family. My daughter has been in a no-pants phase, so rompers have been a fabulous solution. There were SO many to choose from her and I saved so much money and time by not shopping multiple stores or garage sale shopping.
When I buy clothing for us, I always try to find pieces that coordinate with each other for some mommy + me styling. I never try to go too match-matchy, but find colors and prints that complement each other. If possible, accessories are a super easy and simple way to add a little matching flair to outfits.
I was able to score a TON of clothes for under $100! How much?
- 7 Rompers for my daughter (toddler)
- 4 women’s blouses
- 1 women’s skirt
- 1 women’s dress
Amazing, right?! Some of them even had the tags on them still. All different brands, like Elle, Lauren Conrad, Carter’s, OshKosh and more. The outfits in these pictures are all Swap.com purchases! No stains, super clean, and a seriously stellar deal.

Are you a spender or saver when it comes to clothes shopping? Are there certain things you splurge on more than others?
At this time of my life I’m more of a saver. Taking care of two kids daily is messy work and I hate to see good clothing get ruined. If it’s a special occasion or shoes, I’ll splurge, but most days I’m a thrifter and saver.
