We don't do those but Pea and I yard sale and go to the farmers market every saturday while daddy sleeps in. Oh and the post yard sale should be coming up sept 15th! I am putting in leave for that day because it's always without fail that I get tasked to do something or I have to work on a saturday and I almost NEVER get to go.

We love consignment sales and shops! We're ready to begin our winter wardrobe - we've got some, but we need to round out some as well. There is a big sale coming up towards the end of September here and another in October.

I sold some of our stuff at one about a month ago. Sold the swing, rock and play sleeper, a play mat and a bunch of her clothes and made 140 dollars! That money is going towards a new convertable carseat. There is another really big one coming up that I may go to and shop. There are several consignment stores around that I go to also. I hardly ever buy her new clothes, I am too cheap!

got a really good sale coming up. good thing, because Willow is in 12 month now and all her winter clothes are already too small!!!
More fundamental than religion is our basic human spirituality. We have a basic human disposition towards love, kindness and affection, irrespective of whether we have a religious framework or not. When we nurture this most basic human resource – when we set about cultivating those basic inner values which we all appreciate in others, then we start to live spiritually. - Dalai Lama

I love shopping consignment sales! I will only hit the half price day though, I am that cheap! I keep saying that I am going to put my stuff in one of those sales one day, but I never get around to it! Maybe next year!

I don't go garage/yard sale shopping, but I do visit Once Upon A Child or thrift shop once in a while. Ya never know whatcha gonna find! I mostly browse around and occasionally buy something.

We take all of Sebastian's clothes he outgrew to MIL's house, I think she saves them for whoever has a boy next within close family and friends.

Love yard sales or really consignment sales! I just sold a bunch of Mason's clothes at a mom to mom sale at a local church. I think I ended up spending more than I sold though!!

Thank you Julka for my beautifully, perfect siggy!!

I love going to consignment stores and garage sales. A lot of Caylyn's clothes are from these places.

I just scored all this for $15.00

Way to go Jacklyn! I have a $40 credit at the store I consign with. I dropped off another load of stuff today so I got an additional 15% off if I bought anything. I bought a large sleep sack, a uniform skirt and shirt for my 11 year old and it came to $10...but I didn't have to shell out a dime..just used my credit! Love it!

Ive never done consignment or garage sales... i have done once upon a child twice though lol.. i bought clothes that had the old price tag of like 30 dollars on it for 5 dollars but i dont do the other stuff. My kids have too much clothes and then when Im done with it I donate it to goodwill because I know somwhere other ppl have way less than I do.

******Thank you Julka for my beautiful siggy******

My favorite sale often has clothes brand new with tags, so I LOVE shopping it. I was going to sale this year, but then found out our family had plans that weekend

I love to yard sale! I haven't put anything on consignment in awhile. The local children's consignment just moved closer to us, so I might make my way over there. I belong to a couple clothing swaps, so we haven't really bought anything new in awhile.

This is an old article, but you can at least see how it works.

I have never really bought anything at a yard sale but we have an awesome children's consigment clothing store here. More than half of their items still have the original price tag on them. Loveee it I actually just joined a site where I got a voucher for $20 worth of infant clothes from this store for $10 so we will be grabbing Gav some winter stuff from there.
