You know what’s funny about younger Jessica? I never thought I could get busier. Or be as tired as I was in high school, working a part time job and playing two sports. Or later on in college while I was in nursing school. While being married and working.
Or in my case, just one kid right now. One that isn’t involved in after school activities, sports, or church group.
Ya’ll we already need a color coded calendar and there’s only three of us, and one of us is just learning to walk. So how do we get it all done? The first thing is GRACE. I have to remind myself of this daily. Sometimes you don’t get to check everything off your list in a day. Sometimes just surviving until bedtime is your victory for the day. AND THAT’S OKAY.
In an effort to try and balance it all though, I like to simplify the things that I can, to free up my time to do the things that I want to be doing, like rolling around on the floor with my dare devil toddler, or taking the dogs on a walk. Or once in a blue moon, going on a nice date with my husband. (Really need to get better about that, but grace, remember?)
One of the things I have decided to try and save both money and time on is Parker’s clothes. I am a huge fan of hand me down clothes and consignment shopping, but sometimes it’s hard to find the time to go hunt for more clothes, he keeps growing so fast! ENTER Kids on 45th .
They sell quality kid’s clothes for cheap. They have unbeatable prices with new and pre-loved kids’ clothes delivered to your door for about $4 an item, starting at $1.99 for baby items and top out at $12.99 for big kid jackets. They have size newborn to 14/16 in clothing, and you can place your order in as little as 2 minutes. This makes life easier for busy, on the go parents; you just choose what kind of item you want, how many, and they do the rest! You can even suggest style preferences, or if your kiddo is really into a particular character, you can list that as well.
No trips to the mall or store, no digging through racks to find the right size, or having to meet up with several moms for internet purchases, just to build a wardrobe that will only last a season. And if for some reason you don’t like something, it’s a quick two taps to get a credit for the item.
I’m telling you guys, it was so simple. I said I wanted a jacket, a hat, three pairs or pants, three pairs of shorts, three long sleeve shirts, and three short sleeve shirts. I got all of that for about $40. Seriously. So as we get ready for fall, with Parker getting bigger, but the weather changing (it’s got to get cooler right??), I’ve got plenty to work with while we see how big he gets before the temperature drops. And when we need more, my next happy mail box is just a few clicks away.
If all of that wasn’t enough, they are offering you all a great discount code on your first order! If you use the code JESSICA you will get $10 off your first order. That’s at least one outfit for free! No subscriptions, no hidden fees, just affordable, easy shopping, so you can stay busy taking care of what’s really important.
If you have any questions, send them my way! <3
