Back to school time is approaching and with that means shopping, shopping, shopping! Whether you have a preschooler or a big kid, odds are that you will be buying something. The list never ends between backpacks, school supplies, and, of course, clothing. I have fun buying stylish duds for my little ones, but the thought of going shopping with a two and five year old do not appeal to me. In fact, most of my shopping is done online these days. With a new house and countless projects ahead, I just don’t have a lot of extra time to be driving here and there for kid clothes.
Enter, Wittlebee. I don’t know if I’ve been hiding under a rock, but I just discovered Wittlebee. Forgive me if you have already heard of them, but if you haven’t, I must say that I think it could be the greatest thing since sliced bread. Wittlebee is a children’s clothing subscription service. I discovered them through one of my favorite blogs, Cool Mom Picks. You simply fill out a style profile for your child, explaining what articles of clothing your child needs (onesies, t-shirts, pjs, etc.) and what colors they like, as well as what size and style you are looking for (hipster, preppy, etc.) Once you sign up, you get a call from a stylist at Wittlebee and they chat with you about your specific needs or if you have any special requests.
You receive a box of new clothing with six pieces once a month (valued at around $100) and pay $39.99 (though they run specials for first time customers all the time). There is no commitment and you can cancel your membership at any time.
I am a new customer and anxiously awaiting my first box of clothes for my two year old. Wittlebee currently offers size newborn through 5T, though I have read that many parents out there wish that they carried larger sizes for their older children. As a relatively new company, that may be in the works in the future.
I am a bit of a control freak about things, so I’m curious how I will like this service, not being able to choose the clothing myself. But, it might be fun to be surprised each month with outfits I probably wouldn’t be able to find on my own. Brand names include Carter’s, Gymboree, Tea Collection, American Apparel, Paul Frank, and Baby Gap.
For busy parents out there, having a few new outfits delivered each month could save you some time and money. At $39.99 a month, that is less than $7 per article of clothing. Pretty affordable and the shipping is FREE.
For $10 off your first Wittlebee order, use this code:
I’ll keep you posted once I get my first box.
Happy Back to School Shopping to all the mamas!
