Reduce, Reuse, Go Shopping for the Kids

Reduce, Reuse, Go Shopping for the Kids
This is our weekly guest-blog post from the moms behind Red Tricycle, a site that focuses on the "lighter side" of parenting. Every week, they'll be bringing us their picks of stuff to do around the Bay Area with kids.

Coulda sworn that fabulous pair of designer jeans still fit your kid, right!? Those gorgeous, to-die-for mini dresses or fancy baby shoes? Worn once. The button-down pin-striped oxford shirt? Still starchy. Amazing toys in all shapes and colors and noises? Boring after six months. Snow Gear purchased for one fantastic snow weekend? Discarded after season’s endings.

Let’s face it folks, babies and tots tear through clothing, shoes and toys as fast as a sunflower sprouts up in the summer. Parents who hope to clothe their kiddos in adorable, gently used clothes and shoes at over 50 percent less than store bought stuff should head for the thriving community of children’s consignment stores throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. Buy, Sell and Trade, it’s a great way to score killer deals on gently used and fantastically adorable clothing, make a little cash money and take the opportunity to invoke the three R’s: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
