Back-to-School Shoppers Save on Gently Used Fashions at Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) July 28, 2014 - Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate, resellers of gently used clothing and accessories, help parents save money when shopping for back-to-school.

According to a National Retail Federation survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics, the average family with children in grades K-12 will spend $669.28 on apparel, shoes, supplies and electronics for back to school. This figure would represent a 5 percent increase from last year's spending average of $634.78 per family. With the rising cost of back-to-school shopping, families can save money by shopping for gently used clothes at Kid to Kid and Uptown Cheapskate.

Kid to Kid is a national children's resale franchise that specializes in stylish, screened for quality fashions for kids up to size 14. Franchise founder Shauna Sloan explained, "You'll find the best prices for back-to-school clothes at Kid to Kid. Plus you'll find hundreds of different styles and dozens of brands in every size which gives you far more choices than at the mall. Most items are under $5.00 – so you can outfit your child in stylish gently used items for a fraction of the cost of brand new."

Shopping for gently used clothes and shoes isn't the only way customers can save at Kid to Kid. Parents earn cash on the spot by selling outgrown kids' clothes, toys, and baby gear. Kid to Kid buys almost everything a growing child wears, uses, or plays with provided that it's safe, in style, and in excellent condition. Customers can choose cash, or earn 20% more when they take their payment in store credit.

When kids outgrow Kid to Kid, they graduate to the sister concept Uptown Cheapskate which specializes in new and like-new name brand clothes, shoes, jewelry and handbags for teens and young adults. Uptown Cheapskate helps high school and college students who are looking to save money on stylish clothes as they head back to class this fall. "I can't imagine shopping anywhere else," comments Uptown shopper Ariel Smith. "My friends get excited about a Nordstrom's sale. I find much better deals every time I shop at Uptown Cheapskate where I can get three or four things for less than they paid for one item on sale." Uptown Cheapskate provides a similar buy and sell model to Kid to Kid, allowing customers to earn instant cash for their gently used clothes, shoes and accessories.
