Going back to school in style without breaking the bank

Ask a child what kind of pants they like, and they’ll list off brand names and not a style. It’s all about the label for children as they try to be hip. So, how can a parent dress their kid in these high-end labels without breaking the bank? Parents are turning to resale and consignment shops to meet their kids label frenzy without spending a ton of money.

We visited Once Upon a Child in Stow, Ohio, for a NewsChannel 5 story. They had all sorts of brand names. The clothes were in great shape, and the kids I shopped with had no problem finding trendy clothes that were truly bargains. How about gently used name brand clothes for $10 or less?

Plus, you can earn money by selling gently used clothes, toys, or accessories that your kids may not fit into anymore. Some stores pay right on the spot.

Akron Ohio Moms put together a great list of consignment shops so you can find one in your neighborhood.
