For parents, it’s hard to believe another school year has already begun and your kids are another year older. Kids grow up so fast it can be hard to keep up with their ever-changing needs, and even harder to do it sustainably! Every passing year could mean furniture outgrown, or new favorite colors adopted, or a desk that can no longer hold the weight of this year’s homework! But your local ReStore is here to help. With a wide and changing inventory of new and secondhand home goods, you can find what your family needs at great prices that support a great cause!
Building a Bedroom
ReStore is a great place to find fun kids’ furniture at a fraction of retail prices. Instead of scrolling through online retailers, bring your kids along to ReStore! Every trip to ReStore is a treasure hunt, and your kids can feel a sense of ownership over their finds. You can find fun toddler beds or space saving bunk beds for less than what you may pay for a simple twin bed frame elsewhere.
Unique and fun furniture may be a draw, but don’t forget that ReStore is also stocked with useful basics! You can find brand new mattresses, pillows, and sheet sets for unbeatable prices.
When your kids are old enough to want to personalize their space, you want to let their creativity soar without breaking the bank. That calls for a trip to ReStore!
Picking out a new color for their room is a rite of passage for kids. Find eco-friendly Visions Paint at ReStore, plus any and all supplies you need for a mess-free (or to be more realistic, less messy) paint refresh.
Then hit up the home décor section for small touches that can make your kid’s room feel like a whole new space. ReStore always has a large selection of art to choose from, plus lamps, rugs, and more!
Fun & Games
With ReStore’s constantly changing inventory, you’re sure to find something fun that matches your kid’s hobbies or interests. Are they the outdoorsy type? Find camping supplies for a night in the backyard under the stars. Prefer to stay indoors? You can always find craft supplies and ReStore is even currently stocked with video games. Do they love sports? Keep an eye out for discounted ping pong tables, volleyball sets, or even pool tables!
Bring it Back
When your kids graduate from bunk beds or child sized furniture, you can bring their old stuff back to ReStore to keep the circular reuse economy going. Cleaning out a whole room at once? Schedule a free pickup to make donating extra easy. Plus, you can also bring mattresses and clothes to be recycled at ReStore Oakland!
While it may sting sometimes to let go of pieces of your kid’s childhood, you’ll know that every item donated to ReStore goes towards building homes for other families to grow in.
