Things I Wish I Had Known Sooner #5: Consignment Shopping

#5  As we start to think about fall and re-stocking our kids wardrobes, I want to share a little money-saving tidbit…Consignment sales are your friends! There is no shame in buying used!  Now, of course, there are some things you have to be careful with because of recalls, like cribs…and used car seats are a “no-no” because they could’ve been in an accident!  But as far as used clothing goes, I am ALL about consignment sales! As kids grow older and wear threw clothing more, selection can be a bit limited, but for babies and toddlers you can typically get things that are practically brand new!  The advantage…they can come at a much lower price than retail. Plus, as your kiddos outgrow their clothes, you can consign them and use the funds to clothe your children for the upcoming year! Now beware, just because it may be a consigned item doesn’t necessarily make it a bargain.  Check labels and have a rough idea of what you could get brand new items for in store. If your kids are hard on clothes, look for brands that last and tend to hold up to lots of laundering. In my experience, Gymboree has been a great brand to get used.  They have usually held up rather well and look almost new upon my purchasing them.  Most of the time I can get Gymboree items for a fraction of what I would have paid brand new.   At the right price, I’m usually happy with Osh Kosh, Baby Gap, and Carter’s as well.  Being the bargain shopper that I am, I love consignment sales! Let me just add too that I only purchase items I love…Just because its a bargain doesn’t mean I HAVE to buy it.  If I’m going to purchase it its because I love it and think it will look adorable on my girls =)!  So happy consigning and happy shopping!

    First off I want to say terrific blog! I had a quick
    question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was curious to know
    how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.
    I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting
    my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are lost simply just trying
    to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!
