Just Between Friends Consignment Sales are Back!

The following is a sponsored post. Thank you for supporting our family and our blog! As always, all opinions and words are entirely my own.

Well, this is clearly becoming a regular thing!

I just did a search for previous posts that I've written about consignment sale shopping, and let's just say that I come across as kind of a consignment sale fanatic. And rightly so!

Here is how it works for normal families:
Mommy and Daddy bring home a baby. After two or three years, a second baby is born. Baby #2 wears and uses everything that Baby #1 has already grown out of. Essentially, Mommy and Daddy can buy one wardrobe for a girl and one wardrobe for a boy, and be pretty well set for any number of children they have, just picking up a few incidentals as needed. (I'm the oldest of six, so I saw this in action growing up!)

Here is how it works for our family:
Mommy and Daddy bring home Baby #1, Baby #2, Baby #3, and Baby #4 at the same time. There are two babies of each gender. Mommy and Daddy have to buy four new wardrobes every time they need a new size or a new season starts because everyone is the same size.

Can you see the $$$ just floating away? Completely unaffordable. Completely.

So I use consignment sales to keep our kids in clothes, shoes, birthday and Christmas gifts, coats, learning activities, books, movies...goodness, just about everything. And I start to get a little excited about this time of year because:

Consignment Sale Season is Starting!

If you haven't tried consignment sale shopping, you HAVE to put this on your bucket list.Whether you have one kids or quads like me, it is an excellent way to save money (50-90% below retail!) without sacrificing quality (everything is checked for condition). I've even convinced both sets of grandparents to do their Christmas and birthday shopping at consignment sales too. More bang for the buck!

So I'd like to invite you to join me at one of my favorite consignments sales: Just Between Friends!

  1. Between area consignment sales and consignment shops, my daughter rarely gets anything brand-new! Books, clothes, toys, potties... We love gently used. My best friend had twins last year - I taught her how to shop a sale and now we've add the multiples sale to. The list as well. We do 3-4 sales a season. Best deal? $1 on shoes - looking like they've never been worn!
