Surprise #1 looked a little something like this…
All three of us pregnant and due within a month of each other this summer. (And matching. I love that we’re matching. We haven’t worn matching clothes for probably close to two decades when we did song and dance talent show routines together…)
Surprise #2 looked like this…
Two boys and one girl on the way!
Surprise #3 is that I actually have a few (just a few) tips that have made my mama life easier and sweeter in the last (almost) two years. And the big plan is to share them with you and hopefully pick up on a few of your secrets along the way. (Please share!!)
Tip #1 of my very best finds in the last couple of years has everything to do with a little corner of the Internet called Moxie Jean.
Moxie Jean is an online consignment shop that sells like-new clothing for babies and kids from top brands. I’ve never ordered anything from this site for my little guy that wasn’t in the best condition and at an unbeatable price.
I’m a girl who loves a good garage sale. But there’s an art to finding great resale items-and it usually has everything to do with patience, digging through tons of boxes or bags, getting up early to beat the rest of the Saturday morning crowd, and a lot of luck.
Moxie Jean is, just like their tagline says, “Resale Reimagined.” It’s like primo-consignment-shopping from the comfort of your laptop and pajamas. AND. You know that anything that catches your eye is in rockin’ good condition.
(I got my little guy’s snowsuit for this winter at Moxie Jean. Seriously looks brand new, Columbia brand, and for $17. Just one of my favorite shopping experiences with these people who are moms and know moms. Love it. Love it all.)
The site is so clean and easy to navigate. You shop by gender and size and then scroll through dozens of photos that look something like this:
You can buy outfit sets or look through single items. There are shoes and holiday items. You can shop specific brands or seasons. The inventory is updated with new items every Monday and Thursday. And you know what else? Your first purchase is 20% off and all orders over $50 qualify for free shipping. Win. Win.
So that’s the buying side of Moxie Jean. You also have the option of sending in the clothes your kiddos have grown out of to earn actual cash or Moxie Money credit towards future purchases. You can find out anything you’d want to know (what they pay per item, what they’re looking for, etc) about selling to Moxie Jean right here.
What I might be most excited about though is that, just like us, Moxie Jean has gone maternity (and provided us with the matchy-matchy sweaters and jeans)! TODAY-March 16th-Moxie Jean launches a maternity line. And I’m more than a little thrilled. Mostly because I trust this site. And I know I’ll find great items at equally great prices. And feeling put together while you’re growing a little human can make such a difference!
Because we really love this company and think you should too, we’re giving away a $25 credit to Moxie Jean. You’ll be amazed at what you can get with $25 on this site, so go! Check it out! And be sure to enter…
