I like it Mama

Look what came in the mail yesterday!  Consignment store shopping, oh how I love thee, let me count the ways...

1. (oh yeah, I am actually counting) I got this new with tags J. Crew skirt, normally $78 for $14! 
2. By shopping consignment I help take something off someone else's hands, support small business (or individual people), and avoid consuming more and more new things.
3. Avoiding consuming more and more new things and reusing old things helps the big lady Earth on both ends!

But here's the deal, I am a busy mom of 2 boys and they definitely don't want to go to store after store with me hunting for the perfect earth-saving item to add to our wardrobes.  So what's a girl to do?  Well, I like to shop online because it's much easier for me.  So there's Craigslist which I use and like for home stuff but have a hard time with finding great clothes, it's really hit or miss.  But EUREKA!  I found this great online business run by a work-at-home mom (who provides supreme customer service)  called, I like it Mama.  The best thing about this website is that it is divided by person (kids, women, men) and size so with a couple clicks, you can find exactly what you are looking for.  I have adored everything I have purchased and every compliment I have received on my boys' outfits for the past 6 months has been on something I bought from I like it Mama.  

Check it out, see what you think, support a work-at-home mom.  And if you know of any other similar sites, I would love to hear about them!
