The cost of a baby’s wardrobe can build up over time, since you constantly need to buy new items as your little one grows. But who says you have to pass up all the adorable outfits you want so you can stay within your budget? Here are a few ways to save money without sacrificing style when shopping for baby clothes.
No need to shop a few seasons ahead.
You’ve probably heard the advice from other moms or maybe even your own to shop the sales and buy a few seasons ahead in order to save money on baby clothes. We here at Moxie Jean actually advise you to take the opposite approach and shop only for what you need. We are a company of moms and collectively we have found that when you buy clothes before your child is ready to wear them they either end up getting lost in the back of the closet, never to be warn or by the time the appropriate season comes along your little one is not the size you thought they would be and the clothes don’t fit. When you shop Moxie Jean instead you are already getting items priced at 75% off retail and in like new condition so you will save money and only buy what you need, when you need it!.

BEVERLY HILLS, CA. - As part of our ongoing efforts to take resale mainstream, online resale leader Moxie Jean has recruited dozens of celebrities and public figures to show their support for this green alternative to conspicuous consumption.
“Divergent” star and father of two boys, Mekhi Phifer (left), “Raising Asia” and “Dance Moms” star Asia Monet Ray, Lauren Potter of “Glee” fame (below), “Parenthood” vet Jason Ritter and the young “Blackish” actress Marsai Martin and are just a few of the stars who took time from the Golden Globes festivities to tweet their support for the growing resale movement:
“Thank you Moxie jean for giving me my new dress. What a great concept. Love it. @MoxieJeanKids” tweeted Ava Kolker (@realAvaKolker), young co-star of “Girl Meets World”.
“Experts estimate that it takes more than 700 gallons of water to grow the cotton in just one t-shirt. Every time you buy or sell gently used clothing, you are making a green choice,” said Moxie Jean CEO, Sharon Schneider.
Guests also received an item of clothing from Moxie Jean inventory and learned how Moxie Jean makes it super easy to fill a bag with gently used clothing and send it in for cash, credit, or to donate their proceeds to the patients served by the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago.
“Everyone loves a good deal, and resale certainly provides that,” said cofounder Sandra Pinter, “but we know that the key to reaching all families is to make resale as easy and as stylish as buying new. That’s why we are thrilled that these folks are helping get the word out to grow the community of #resalerockstars.”
Beyond famous faces, Moxie Jean’s community of #resalerockstars includes moms like Susan Lauver, who has boy and girl twins now wearing size 3T: “Buying and selling with Moxie Jean has saved me so much time and stress, and allows me to dress my son and daughter like the future international celebrities I just know they're going to be!”

For such tiny people, babies are able to create an impressive mound of dirty laundry every day. Those sweet potatoes and green beans they love so much seem to end up mostly on their clothes instead of in their mouths!

One item that sometimes makes its way onto the “must-have” list for newborns is baby detergent. But do you need a special type of soap to wash and care for your baby’s clothes? In short, probably not.
Unless your baby has allergies or extremely sensitive skin, the laundry detergent you use for the rest of the family should be fine for washing baby clothes. Some new parents even find that baby detergents don’t get clothes quite as clean as their regular brand. Here are a few tips for finding a detergent and washing method that will get the job done without irritating your little one’s skin.
