Before about a month ago, I had only made purchases through consignment stores, but after thinking about it for a long time, I finally took some of our unneeded things to a local consignment shop to sell and today I have almost $35 that they owe me! Woo-hoo!
My favorite part is how easy it is. We just take in the stuff, and they sell it. Even though we did have great success at the one garage sale we did before moving, this is way easier, especially since we don’t have as much we want to sell right now.
Speaking of selling….we’ve also had good success with craigs list when selling (and buying) bigger things like cars, washers, dryers, and even a microwave.
But back to the consignment store….the same one we’re selling things at we’ve made plenty of purchases at recently….like our little printer for just $10!
And these snow boots for the kids for $3 per pair.
And literally just in time (it was just starting to snow) I got Gracia an Old Navy coat for $9 from the same store. Her previous coat’s zipper had broken. I’m so thankful we got her this new one right before the big snow. We also picked up a pair of jeans for Little Dude for $6.20.
