For The Kids: Get All Your Back-To-School Shopping (Trading) Done Tonight

If you’ve got kiddos heading to the classroom in the fall, chances are they need gear. Don’t buy new! They will grow out of it in, like, two minutes, and it’s terrible for the planet.

Lucky for YOU, HELM.life (from the masterminds at Datenight app) has designed a great system to trade in (or buy) the gently used items you need, without wasting any time. “Shop” for fall and winter jackets and snowpants (ugh), skates, shoes, outfits and more. If you just want to trade clothing in for Babysitting credits on the Datenight platform, you can do that too (bonus). They’ll start the search for what you need within the community. If you find it first—great—cancel. If they do, they’ll drop it off. Orders are fulfilled in a first-ordered-first-served basis and priority is also given to those participating in the trade-in program. When they have your gear ready, they’ll arrange a drop-off.

Go here to place your first order.
