This is a busy time of year for parents, there is no doubt about that. School starting and getting underway, extra curricular activities are getting going, and then you have all the holidays coming up as well.
Busy.. busy.. busy. There is never enough time and there is certainly never enough money for most parents. Between new school clothes, sports uniforms, shoes and then Halloween costumes, the pennies are certainly getting tighter and tighter.
Good news for moms and dads, there is help out there! I recently got the opportunity to spend some time walking around and shopping the racks at the Peoria Kid to Kid location as well as Uptown Cheapskate.
Kid to Kid serves pregnant moms up to size 10-12 for kids. As parents, we all know that kids outgrow their clothes super quickly and it gets expensive to replace them time and time again. However, at Kid to Kid, not only do they sell gently used and new clothing, they will buy your gently used clothing for cash or store credit! Not just clothes either, toys, games, sports uniforms and accessories- it’s amazing what you can find in the store!
The best part, this is a family owned store. Husband and wife team Deron & Michelle Luzar bought the Kid to Kid back in 2006 when they had 2 younger kids and then purchased the Uptown Cheakskate in 2011, as their kids grew older and their focus changed a bit.
It is a family experience all around says Michelle, “Our kids both work with us at the store. My daughter handles much of the social media we do and my son is on the schedule, working hours at the store, so we are thankful we are able to do this as a family.”
During my treasure hunt, I was able to find a lot of deals and steals for moms, dads and the kids. Entire outfits for less than $15, including accessories!
Like this little number for a little girl:
Or this one for your little dude in family holiday photos:
There is also wonderful outfits for the Mommy to Be!
And beautiful clothing options for those older teens and moms thanks to Uptown Cheapskate!
And for the young men, older boys and Dads, uptown also has some great options!
When shopping at Kid to Kid, I also found some amazing Halloween Costume ideas for the family – some as low as $7.99!!!! Hello to the frugal mamas like me!
For those families looking for some great deals on costumes for the kids, on September 9th, all costumes will be 25% off and there will be Minions available for photo opps. Doors will open at 8am on this special day!
