Kids are hard on their clothing. I’ve found that this year is the worst so far. After a few uses, the item has stains, is torn and/or they’ve grown out of it. Yes, that quickly. Given these factors and the price of new clothing, I can’t justify spending as much as a new pair of Men’s dress shoes on a summer outfit. Yes, people do spend that much.
Given our lifestyle choices (I’m a SAHM and we travel six months of the year), I watch where we spend our money. One easy way to do that is by saving money on our food bill and the other is with The Kids clothing expenses.
Ninety percent of The Kids clothes are used. You wouldn’t know it. My take is that you don’t have to look like you’re wearing used clothing. I’ve found this to be very challenging because we live in rural Ontario and are limited by the variety of clothing; new and used. In turn, I’ve started looking online to get what I need and in one of my searches I found I Spy Clothing.
Top Brand Names at up to 80% off.
One thing that drew me to them was their variety of brand names that I haven’t seen before such as; Burberry, Lacoste, Christian Dior, Tommy Hilfiger, Talbots, Mossimo, Ralph Lauren. And I doubt you can beat the price of up to 80% off retail! But, what really won me over was their sense of environmental responsibility.
The impact of ‘fast fashion’ on the environment is deeply concerning, as the cheap, ‘throw-away’ clothing in the big retail shops becomes more a part of our mainstream culture. The manufacturing and disposing of textiles is proven to be detrimental to the environment and the situation continues to worsen due to a globalized supply chain that provides Western countries with easy access to lower-cost clothing.
Fortunately, we can choose not to feed this problem by buying excessive amounts of cheaply-made, mass-produced clothing for our kids. Instead, we can limit how we impact the planet by simply extending the average life of clothing by wearing them for longer.
10 items of Kids Gently Used Clothing for less than $50!
1. Size 4T Girls by Joe Fresh, 2. Size 5T Boys by Old Navy, 3. Size 5T Girls by Old Navy, 4. Size 5T Girls by Old Navy, 5. Size 5T Boys by Faded Glory, 6. Size 4T Boys by George, 7. Size 4T Boys by Old Navy, 8. Size 5T Girls by Old Navy, 9. Size 5T Girls by Maggie & Zoe, 10. Size 4T Girls by Children’s Place
My favourite purchase was #10, The Children’s Place jacket. It fit Artemis perfectly and I consider it to be a speciality item that is difficult to find in my small town. Artemis loved #3 and #9 because of the butterflies and flowers. Nine out of the 10 items were in the exact condition or better as stated on the website.
The only one I wasn’t pleased with was #1, the long sleeved shirt from Joe Fresh. Since it was so cute, I broke my one rule in purchasing this top… it has white sleeves. Why people make them in the first place, I don’t know but they’re usually not clean enough for me. Even when they’re new. There was also a slight unravelling on the embroidery. You probably won’t even notice but like I said, I’m really picky. No matter because The Kids can’t have enough clean and dry tops and Artemis can still wear it playing outside and to bed. Note that it is I Spy Clothing’s policy to provide a full refund or store credit if you’re not satisfied with an item.
When all was said and done, I managed to purchase 10 items for $49.04 including tax (HST). Orders over $50 receive free shipping or a flat fee charge of $8.99.
