A Thrifting Mom’s Dream – Kids on 45th

Raise your hand if you love to thrift! Also, raise your hand if your kids are growing out of their clothes faster than you can get to the store. I am raising both of my hands and waving them frantically in the air. My boys are growing like weeds from in between the sidewalk cracks. Keeping up with their growth spurts can be expensive. I have found myself looking towards thrifting to find clothes that will last their current size, but look great; however, that can even be a struggle. Can I get an amen?!

We were recently introduced to a mama owned company that provides pre-loved clothes that look fantastic; Kids on 45th! Did I mention they were affordable too? My wallet is so appreciative. You can get 10 items for $35 (cue hand slap on face circa Macaulay Culkin in Home Alone 1990)! How does it work? It’s as simple as 4 steps:

  1. Tell the lovely folks at Kids on 45th about your kiddos (i.e. names, gender, sizes, type of style, etc.)
  2. Pick the items that you need (it takes only 2-minutes…seriously)
  3. Their stylists shop specifically for your kids.
  4. Receive your kid’s clothes at your doorstop hassle-free.


The box is perfectly packaged when it arrives. When we opened our box there was a great print out with each of the boys’ name and each item that was carefully selected for them. The quality of the clothes and the name brand options are wonderful. I love how each of the boys’ clothes are perfectly aligned for the holiday season.


Their Seasonal Subscription Service (4x/year) is not automatic or required for purchase. They don’t lock you in, so you don’t have to worry about a charge showing up on your account. You can cancel at any time, but with the Seasonal Subscription Service, you get perks like discounts on each seasonal box, double credit for referrals, and NO subscription fees! Sounds like the perfect set up to me!

There are so many benefits to thrifting and this little box does so much more than provides clothes at your doorstep. Thrifting can/is 1) decrease landfill waste 2) lower YOUR carbon footprint 3) aid in water preservation 4) reduce chemical pollution 5) prevents energy waste 6) a sustainable choice 7) good to your wallet 8) inspire creative use 9) displays neighborly cooperation and 10) is less resources used and wasted. These are just 10 ways thrifting can positively impact the environment and your life.

This eco-conscious and sustainable mom LOVES Kids on 45th for more than the convenience, but this company is so much more than we know. They’re saving my sanity as well as impacting the environment in an uplifting way. So, if you’re like me and need to restock your kid’s closet, but don’t want to worry about hunting down those key items, let the beautiful folks at Kids on 45th do it for you! You won’t regret it.
