As a mom to a 7- and 8-year-old, I’m always amazed at how fast they grow. It seems every time I buy them new clothes, I turn around, and they’ve outgrown them.
Munchkin’s Kloset gift cards received.
I like to keep them well dressed and in cute clothes but because they grow so fast, I’m always looking for how to save money on kids clothes. That’s why I am excited about Munchkin’s Kloset in Strongsville, Ohio. I was invited out to the store to check it out and do some shopping for Kora & Logan.
I’ve shopped at children’s resale shops in the past and have found them a great way to save money. I consider myself an experienced resale shopper and couldn’t wait to see what Munchkin’s Kloset had to offer.
We are pretty familiar with the area and as I drove on Pearl road I could easily see the sign from the street. One thing to note, the shop is not directly located under the sign.
You have to walk to the “elbow” of the mall, the city told the owners they could only have one sign so they chose the location that would be most visible from the street. It really is easy to navigate, just park and look for the brightly lit shop full of children’s clothes and the open sign.
When we first entered the shop I couldn’t believe how large it was. It’s definitely the largest kids resale shop that I have every been to. With racks and rack of clothing in all kinds of sizes I couldn’t wait to see what they had for Kora & Logan.
There were tops, pants, skirts, dresses, jackets, shorts, everything item of clothing you could imagine and Kora wanted it all! She really isn’t much of shopper, but she was entranced by everything they had in her size. Lots of big names and plenty of one of her favorites – Justice. I was pleased with the prices too. They ranged from $4 to $9.99 or so.
Next we went over to Logan’s section where shopping for him went much faster. He honestly hates to shop but he did get excited about a few items of clothing for him. I was pleased with the selection in his size, he can where size 7 & small 8’s.
I often have a hard time finding cute clothes for him. It seems that many stores/brands feel that 12-year-old boys and 6-year-old boys like the same things. So all the cute stuff they wore when they were 5 and under suddenly turns to skulls and crossbones, skeletons, characters with stitches or bloodshot eyes, etc. So needles say there was such a variety in his size that I was able to find him some cute things that he is excited to wear. I was also happy that the items we saw in Logan’s size ranged from $2 – $8.
While we stayed in the bigger kids sizes, I did pop into an aisle or two to see what the shop had to offer for little ones. The selection was vast and adorable!! I had to get out of there fast before baby fever hit!
After we tried on soccer shoes we realized we’d been there for nearly two hours. The kids were getting hungry and it was time to checkout. The employees were very helpful and friendly and checkout was speedy and quick.
We got home and I laid out our haul, pretty impressive!
We had a great time shopping at Munchkin’s Kloset in Strongsville, Ohioand highly recommend it to anyone in the area or those visiting, wondering how to save money on kids clothes. The shop is well maintained, the clothing is high quality, and the prices are affordable. They did tell me when we were there that only about 50% of their stock was out and at that time I was impressed with the selection.
This gives me the perfect excuse to go back and I’m checking my calendar now to fit another trip in as soon as possible.
What about you? How do you save money on kids clothes?
