Online Back-To-School Shopping On A Budget

MIAMI (CBSMiami) — School is back in session and there’s good news for parents on a budget who are scrambling to finish shopping for their little one’s wardrobe.

It can be done at a cool new website.

“Schoola Stitch” is an online consignment store that gives buyers a variety of clothes right at their fingertips.

Shoppers will not only be able to buy clothes that won’t pinch their wallets but all purchases will benefit the seller and a school of their choice.

Daryl Gallo, a mother of two, donated her children’s gently worn clothes. She said many of the clothes had never been worn and some items still had their original tags on them.

So how does it all work?

Well, the donation process is easy. Parents log on and sign up.  The company will then send out a bag that parents can fill up with 20 pounds of clothes and return to the company for free.

The website then puts the donated items on sale for up to 90 percent off the original price; 40 percent of the sale goes to the school selected by the seller.

If a parent wants their child’s school to benefit from the services of Schoola Stitch the school is required to sign up online as well.

Sally Rodriguez, a mother of two boys, said buying clothes at such a discount was a great way to save.

“You have two kids and they grow so fast and it’s a perfect way for you to supplement the extra pieces that you need and know that you are getting great quality,” said Rodriguez.
