Out with the Old, In with the New

So I've been busy the past few days tagging clothes for an upcoming consignment sale. I love consignment sales. It's a great way to make a little cash from some of your kids old clothes, and to find some great deals for their new wardrobe. Talk about being green!

If you are wanting to consign some of your kids clothes it can be time consuming but I honestly enjoy the process of sorting through their clothes, hanging them, and tagging. If this isn't for you, you can always look into consigning your clothes in a consignment store (although they usually only offer a 50/50 split instead of 70/30 split, it can be worth it for some though) I've been able to get hangers for free from some stores (ie: kmart and dry cleaners) so check there before buying new. Or sometimes people will post free hangers on craigslist too. Also save the hangers from any clothes you purchase for the next sale.

If you are wanting to shop at a consignment sale, go early if you are looking for something specific. But if you are really frugal, wait until' the 1/2 off sale, that's what I do;) Most consignment sales offer a 1/2 off sale where many of the items are reduced by half! Then I can buy twice as much! ha!

Here is a great resource to find Kid Consignment sales near you:
