I Got All These Clothes for $18 from Schoola!

This post does contain affiliate links. I will receive a small commission for purchases made through these links.

I’ve seen the ads for Schoola. I’ll be honest I didn’t really feel motivated to check out the site initially.  I thought it was just another online consignment shop that would charge too much money.  Then I saw a coupon code around the end of July for 75% off the entire site except NWT items.  So I thought, ok I’ll check it out. I need some new jeans and the kids still need a couple items for school.

So I start checking things out for my daughter and my youngest son.  I didn’t expect to find much for myself but I did, I mean I really did.  I kept adding items to my cart. When I applied the coupon code I couldn’t believe how affordable it was. So I went ahead and added a few more items and still, so affordable.

I ended up getting a fall jacket for my daughter and a Tommy Hilfiger hoodie for my youngest son. I got myself 3 pairs of jeans, a pair of cords, a pair of dress pants, and 2 pairs of shorts.  It ended up being $18 shipped for everything!!

Missing from the pic is the pair of capri shorts I got myself they’re in the wash lol

Some of the brands included in the stuff I bought: Old Navy, Jones New York, Tommy Hilfiger, and Alfani just to name a few.

Right now Schoola has 70% off a $70 purchase with code: LEAVES  until 8/17/17

You know what that means?  If you buy $70 worth of items and apply the code your total should be about $21 plus shipping. $21 + shipping for $70 in clothes. And let me tell you, you can add a lot of stuff to your cart to hit $70.  I did a search from lowest price to highest. There are a lot of $3 items on the site. Great back to school deals.

They even have some school uniform items.  Most items are consignment items so read the descriptions.  There are some new with tag items on the site as well. They also offer shoes, handbags, outerwear, and other accessories.  When you purchase you have the option to make a donation to schools. You can also sell your clothes on Schoola and choose a school you’d like some of the proceeds to go to.

When I was in college ordering things online wasn’t really a thing or maybe it was just starting I can’t remember.
