This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of – Kids’ Consignment for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

When my kids were younger, I bought a lot of their toys and stuff on Ebay and Craiglist.

Now that I have found out about – Kids’ Consignment — I don’t think that will ever be an issue again.

We have been dying to get Mittens her very own cat tower. She loves to lay high atop anything that is in the house and look down.

I have two teenagers living in my household. We homeschool, so talking about money, credit cards, and banking are usually current topics around our breakfast and dinner table. Neither of my kids have a checking account, but they are always wanting to buy things online. I don’t like to let them use my credit card, so I am glad that there are companies like so that they can have their own prepaid debit card without the hassle of a checking account.

My son and daughter have grown up with Capri Sun products in our home. From the time that they were old enough to drink from a straw, they were a part of our lunchtime or travel time plans. Now that they are older and into their teens, those small drinks are just not big enough to quench their thirst. Thankfully, now there is Capri Sun Big Pouch.

Okay — my kids are homeschooled, but when it comes to back to school items, we need them just as much as kids who attend public or private school.

When I was just 17 years old, I applied for my first credit card. I had a new job, and with that job I was earning a lot of money. I was quite proud of myself. So — I got a credit card. It wasn’t a mastercard or anything like that. It was a credit card to Speigel’s and not only did they send me one, but they sent me two separate credit cards. It was at that moment, that I believe my addiction to shopping began.
