So today one of my Facebook friends posted a link to an online store called Schoola. The link promised $15 in free gently-used kids’ clothes.
I’ve been shopping consignment since before it was mainstream, so buying things used is natural to me. And it has suddenly gotten VERY cold here, and Lorelei has almost nothing to wear for winter. So I thought I would take a look.
Schoola has all the quality name brands like Old Navy and Hanna Andersson at about a 70% discount! There is full disclosure about the condition of the items, and you can zoom in to get a really good look at them. I started by buying several skirts of the type Lorelei favors, each for about $3!
Because I shopped through my friend’s link, I got $15 to spend on my next order. So I dove right back in, and I discovered another cool thing. See, I haven’t told you yet that Schoola’s consigners designate a school to receive 40% of the proceeds from each sale. So you are doing something good by shopping here. But I discovered that by creating my own custom shop–which is fun and useful anyway, I could get extra donations for any school I wanted! This time I bought almost exactly $15 worth of leggings. I only had to pay shipping and handling.
I did have one little problem. After my first visit I was given a 25% discount code. AND IT DIDN’T WORK. I’ve fired off an indignant email and am hoping that when they fix it I’ll get another coupon or something. Who knows? Then I can go back for long sleeved shirts!
Anyway, if you try Schoola at that link, I’ll get $15, and you will get $15 toward your second purchase. You will also get your own link to share with YOUR friends. Give it a try and tell me what you think!
