Consignment Sales coming

In our area we have a group of women that have been doing a large children's consignment sale for years. They do 2 a year, one in the spring and one in the fall. I have found that it is a great opportunity for me to sell some of the better clothes that my children cannot wear and use the money to buy things that they need (that I don't make) with the money. So basically there is not much of an out of pocket expense for things like shoes and such. It works pretty well. So the spring consignment sale is coming soon and I will be little by little getting things ready to take up there. They are pretty strict about the condition of the clothes and how they are hung and tagged, so it is a lot of work. It isn't so bad when you start early. Anything that does not sell at the sale is donated so that is nice also. I get a little money, spend it there and the rest is donated. They also of course, have toys and such so this is a great way to get rid of things that the children no longer use. I know for our family it is a great way to save money on buying things that the children need. Children's shoes are simply so expensive and they just don't wear them for very long. They could easily be the biggest expense that we have as far as clothing for the kids. So these consignment sales are a great thing for us. Hope you can find something like this in your area. God bless.
