How to Dress Your Baby Fashionista on a Budget (AND A COUPON!)

Hi friends!  I hope you are well!  We are doing ok.  The air conditioning is broken in the van and with the 100 degree heat, we are staying at home.  It's not as fun as it sounds.  ;)

Today, I'm writing a post about one of the way I dress my little Avery soooooooo cute on a tight budget.  I'm a super thrifty mommy but I still love having Avery wear super cute and fun clothes.  I love buying secondhand for clothes but I usually don't have time to scour thrift stores or garage sales.  Not to mention when I go places, I usually have 3 kids in tow.  When I heard about My Little Clothesline, I was super excited!  (***This is NOT a sponsored post.***)

My Little Clothesline is an online store which sells gently used kids clothes from size newborn to 14+.  They have been around since 2009.  They have great clothes sorted by size and gender so it's easy to shop.  The owner, Lauri Smith, is a super sweet lady!  She is actually the sister (or maybe sister in law) of my friend Kim Kesti.  She is a mom of 4 kids so she knows the importance of quality clothes at an affordable price!

  The shipping time was super fast!  In just a few days, I had the clothes.  ALSO!!!  My Little Clothesline offers Bargain Boxes.  They are like grab bags of kids clothes.  For just $5 you get 5 pieces of kids clothes for sizes newborn-3T or 4 pieces for 4T and up.  You can choose the size and the season of the clothes and they will send you a grab bag.  I've bought two and I was BEYOND happy with them!  The grab bags contain amazing quality stuff and I paid just $1 a piece!

This is the contents of my two Bargain Boxes.  For $10 total, I got dresses, tops, pants, capris, overalls, etc... 
Do you wanna see some pictures of Avery in the clothes?  Of course you do!  ;)

This is a top I picked out for just $3!
 This is a dress from the Bargain Box.  Seriously?  I would have paid the full $10 just for this dress!
I also got some GREAT brands for Avery like DKNY, Baby Gap, Gymboree, etc... I actually bought a pair of shorts on there for Brady too for $4.  If you haven't tried shopping secondhand for a 7 year old, it's VERY hard because kids that age are extremely hard on their clothes.  It's just so nice to be able to look from the comfort of my home and when I can shop in peace without the kids bugging me.

I reached out to Lauri and let her know I was going to write the review and GUESS WHAT?!  She gave me a coupon to share with all of you!  Enter code: hearthugs before checkout to save 20% off your whole order!  That is an AMAZING deal!  Coupon expires on July 10th, 2014 so HURRY!

Have a great day, friends!  I hope I helped you save a couple dollars.  :)
