You've Got Moxie

These are a few of the clothes they've outgrown this month.
My kids keep growing.  My budget for buying them clothes does not.

I swear that both the Muffin Man and the Little Lady are taller every morning.  Do children grow overnight?  Is that something I would've learned in my high school Biology class had I not been ditching school to get stoned?  Regardless, I have two growing kids, a bank account that's hovering right around "brokety broke broke", and a taste for kinder fashion that I can't afford.  Oh, and I'm drowning in baby and toddler clothing that's barely been worn but that no longer fits either of my offspring.

What's a busy Mommy to do? Order a Mailer Bag from Moxie Jean, that's what!

A few weeks ago the situation with the outgrown clothes was getting pretty bad.  I'd been stashing everything in the Muffin Man's closet, but the pile of garments was starting to get so out of control that I was worried Noah might open the closet door to get his shoes one day and end up smothered under a mountain of clothing sized 6-12 months.  The problem was that I didn't really know what to do with the stuff.  Neither my local resale shop nor the online reseller where I send my own clothes accept baby sizes, and while I'm always a proponent of donating to a reputable charity, I really wanted to be able to get some money back for the significant amount of high-quality, barely-used clothing that I'd been hoarding.

He's partial to leopard...for himself. 
Just as I was beginning to despair of ever getting rid of the death trap of used clothing, I heard about Moxie Jean from a Mom friend of mine.  I popped on the internet, checked out the website, and discovered that they accept kids clothes starting at size zero!  I ordered myself a Mailer Bag and got busy sorting through Mount Clothing so that I could stuff that bag with the good items and (hopefully) receive some cash money or credit in return.

There's a cute baby behind that bag somewhere.
I can't tell you how easy the whole process is, which is a Godsend when you're a busy Mom with no time.  The kiddos even graciously "helped" me stuff everything into the bag.  I sealed up the (incredibly full) envelope, handed it off to my postal carrier, and now I get to enjoy the rewards!

Rose is so into it, she's trying to sell clothes that still fit. 
I'm totally crushing on Moxie Jean for several reasons:
  • It was started by two Moms, and I love supporting entrepreneurial Mommies
  • It's a great way to go green.  Hey, recycled fashion is in, even for the three and under set.
  • Moxie Jean has really good brands!  I mean, obviously, since they just got two bags of my stuff but when I was cruising the site looking for clothes I might want to spend my credit on, there were lots of  items that would be more than appropriate for my little hipster's wardrobe.
  • They want your maternity clothes.  You haven't been pregnant in three years, yet you're still wearing pregnant woman pants?  Stop that right now and send in your maternity clothes.  
  • If you're a better person than I, and more philanthropy minded, you can donate the amount of your credit to families whose kids are undergoing treatment at Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, and in need of clothing.  I mean, how cool is that? 


Listen, if you're hoarding baby clothes despite the fact that your husband had a vasectomy and you've already gone through menopause, it's time for you to order a Moxie Jean Mailer Bag.  Stop hanging on to every. single. onesie. ever worn by each of your six children and get yourself some cash that you can use to pay for all the therapy sessions you need in order to discuss why you can't let go of your son's baby clothes.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Moxie Jean.  All of the opinions about how amazing it is to get paid for a bunch of clothes your kids no longer wear are my own.
