3 Great Reasons to Shop Secondhand for Your Kids

We all want our children to look and feel great in what they wear. But when you’re on a budget, finding cute and affordable clothes for your kids can be a challenge. Luckily, Ohio Valley Goodwill is here to help you save money on everything your kids need to express their one-of-a-kind style. Here are a few great reasons to start shopping secondhand for children’s’ clothing at Goodwill:

Save money

Kids’ clothing can be surprisingly expensive. Instead of paying full price at the mall, try shopping at Ohio Valley Goodwill for your children’s clothes, shoes, and accessories. With our huge selection of quality clothing at low prices, your dollars will stretch so much further when you shop at Goodwill.



Save time

Shopping for the entire family can be time-consuming and downright exhausting. Instead of heading to multiple stores, make Ohio Valley Goodwill your one-stop shop for the whole family. At Goodwill, you can shop for the latest styles for men, women, teens, and kids all at the same time and avoid the hassle of visiting several stores.

Buy a size up

It’s no secret that kids grow quickly. Many times, kids outgrow their clothing and shoes before they’ve even had a chance to really use them! If your child is on the brink of a growth spurt, why not plan ahead and purchase clothing or shoes that are a size or two larger than their current size? Plus, because kids outgrow their clothes so fast, many families donate great quality items that have hardly been worn to Goodwill. Keep an eye out for brand names and kids clothing in “new-with-tags” condition on your next Goodwill shopping trip!

Shopping at Ohio Valley Goodwill is a great way to help your kids define their unique style without breaking your budget. Once your children outgrow their clothes, shoes, or toys, you can always donate them to Goodwill!


When you shop at Goodwill, you get so much more than a great deal. You also get the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping people in your local community. That’s because we use the revenue raised in Ohio Valley Goodwill’s retail stores to help fund employment and job training services for individuals with disabilities and our nation’s veterans. It’s all a part of our mission to help people gain the skills and confidence needed to obtain meaningful employment.

So, the next time you shop at or donate to Goodwill, invite your children to come along. They’ll learn about the value of helping people in their community find employment, as well as the importance of environmental sustainability through reusing and recycling.
