Win-win alert: Save money on school shopping and contribute to a great cause

A new school year is fast approaching, or maybe the year has already begun for some people. Either way many elementary school kids are probably in the market for new school clothing and uniforms.

With how quickly most kids grow, their school clothing and basic necessities from last year may not fit anymore. Fortunately, there are ways to save money on all your child’s clothing needs, with these coupons and deals from top stores.

Hanna Andersson

For younger and elementary-age kids who are constantly on the move, Hanna Andersson is a great place to shop. Hanna Andersson also donates 2 percent of what you spend to a charity or nonprofit, and you won’t break the bank buying their wide selection of clothes for kids.

Their clothing, made from organic cotton, is made to be comfortable, durable and stylish so you won’t have to worry about spending money on new clothes every few months. The wide selection of leggings and clothes are durable and made just for play. Your little ones can run, jump and play all day and you won’t have to worry about wear and tear.

The Children's Place

When in doubt of where to shop, The Children’s Place is a great bet, carrying the latest trends for any young fashionistas out there. From graphic tees and all styles of denim to on-trend prints and fun accessories, your kid is sure to find something she’ll love — and you’ll love the money you save with these deals too.

The Children's Place has a variety of fun prints on everything from T-shirts to leggings, so kids of any age can start to find their personal style. With the new school year rolling around, necessities for school uniforms and bags and backpacks are on sale now as well.

Old Navy

When looking for new clothing, a good rule of thumb is to stick with basics. You can purchase a few different pieces in a variety of colors for easy mix-and-match combos. I personally recommend Old Navy for their selection of great basics, ranging from T-shirts and tank tops for layering to bottoms and dresses.

I remember shopping at Old Navy before a new school year and am still a fan of their denim collection. You can save a ton of money while also donating 2.5 percent of your spendings to your favorite cause and stock up on much-needed basics before schools starts.

If you’re shopping for new threads for the new year, check out these places and more deals and savings at Goodshop. There are a ton of options for kids of all ages, and you’ll be sure to get quality clothing that will last for a decent price.
