I recently posted here about a remarkable new school fundraising website called Schoola, where you can earn money for the school of your choice simply by donating outgrown children’s clothing. When I first posted, I was new to the site myself but excited to give it a try! Well, we requested our first couple of donation bags and have gotten to work cleaning up our garage of gently used children’s clothing, and we have a TON! I quickly filled up our first two postage-paid bags and dropped them off at the local post office. I immediately ordered more bags as we still have a lot more to donate! My son is super excited to see how much money his old clothing earns as 40% of the proceeds go directly back to his school, how awesome is that? My 2-year old daughter will even benefit from the sale of her heaps of clothing as she’ll be attending the same school in just a few short years. If you want to request your own free donation bag, head to Schoola and choose the school you would like to benefit and they’ll send you a bag, easy as that!
We’ve also taken to shopping on Schoola, all of those outgrown clothes we donated need to be replaced with stuff that actually fits! My kids are growing like crazy right now and all of the jeans I just bought for my son at full-price this winter have become way too small for him (maybe you’ll end up buying a pair if you have a size 5 or 6 boy!) I was elated to find practically new brand-name jeans on Schoola for my son at a fraction of the price I usually pay for his jeans! I found him two great pairs each for under $10, not a bad deal! My daughter has been lucky to have a ton of hand-me-downs from friends, but I still couldn’t resist getting her a few cute shirts from Schoola, they were practically free! If you want to pick out a few items for your own kids, use Schoola coupon code BacktoSchoola20 and get 20% off your entire purchase through 8/20/14! Remember that whenever you make purchases on Schoola, you are also helping fund education as 40% of what you spend will end up back in the school of the donor. It’s a deal too good to refuse!
