If you are anything like me, you have bags upon bags of clothing littering your attic that your children have outgrown. Most of these items were worn a handful of times before your little ones had a growth spurt or declared shirts with buttons more evil than the “loading” bee on the PBS Kids app. Some pieces of clothing have never even seen the light of day, forgotten or misplaced in the day to day duties of well, living.
I have tried consigning clothing in the past- dragging it to the store, having someone appraise and accept/deny it, then waiting for it to sell, and lastly coming back to the store to pick up your money. I am exhausted just writing about it! There has to be an easier way, right? Preferably one where I don’t have to leave my couch, can watch SATC and eat Cantina chips and guacamole while shopping? If this sounds like your situation, put down the guac and head to Totspot now.
Totspot is a mobile shopping app that allows moms to buy and sell gently used clothing to each other. No trips to the store. No sifting through endless racks of overpriced goods. It is incredibly easy to get shopping:

How about selling?

- Type details in pre-populated fields.
- Set your price and shipping.
I posted these adorable baby shoes that Charlotte only wore in photos- it took me two minutes to get my item listed.
Here’s a thought- avoid the crazy holiday shopping crowds and do your shopping from your phone! Pick a pretty dress during pre-school pick-up, grab a great coat during gymnastics class, use those extra minutes to find gorgeous outfits at a great price for the holidays.
I bought Charlotte this absolutely adorable coat with matching hat for the upcoming party season. I usually get nervous about buying kids clothes online, but I was able to message the seller and ask her how it fit her daughter. She so kindly took a photo of her daughter wearing it so I would know how it would fit my little one. This was a steal at $10, and (I may be biased) but I think it looks smashing on her!
