{Online thrifting}

If you know me well, you know I am crazy about online shopping. When I say crazy I mean I'm obsessed with it. From ordering groceries online, to getting free shipping and 5% off with my Target card to Amazon prime...why would I ever have to leave the house?! Bliss! Okay, I exaggerated a little. Human interaction is pretty vital and I enjoy shopping and roaming around the store occasionally. 

But when I'm unable to go to the store or I need to shop for the kids I turn to my phone. I like to look for garage sales and rummage through the clearance racks. But with three kids in tow, leisurely looking around just doesn't happen. For example, Lucy is in desperate need for new pajamas. With the season changing fleece pajamas are pretty much like a mini sauna for her. So while looking online for cheap pjs, I stumbled upon an app called Kidizen. 

You can download this app for free and it's like a garage sale but online. You can even open up your own "shop" by taking pictures of different clothes you are wanting to sell and loading them on the app. Other people can then go to your shop and purchase your clothes. Once they have purchased your clothing, you are able to print off a shipping label then simply drop the package off at your local post office. I can spend a lot of time browsing for clothes and shoes and other things on that app! The prices are a bit higher than a garage sale but the items sold on the website are in very good condition.

  So far I have sold a few items and have purchased a few items as well. For me, it has worked seamlessly. So if you are like me and you like to avoid the stores and order from the comfort of your couch check out Kidizen the next time you need something for your kiddos! 

Here are a few screen shots to give you an idea of how Kidizen works. 

Here's a look into my "shop" or LNK|garments. Once a person has found my shop they can click on the images of the clothing to get more details about the clothes.
