So I brought an entire clothing rack worth of clothes plus a stroller and 3 boxes of other items to a consignment sale. I get 70% of the profits, so I figured it was a good deal. What I didn't realize was that I had to put everything out where it belonged. And things had to be hung on the hangers a certain way. That part sucked b/c 3/4 of my stuff needed to be re-hung while I was checking in plus dealing with safety pins on pants. Thank goodness 2 of my friends were there b/c I had the twins with me and didn't have room in the car for their stroller. If I do this again, I am definitely planning better!

Not sure yet. I can't go to the actual sale b/c we are running a little low on funds thanks to the IRS. My friend was there for the consigner pre-sale and said it was starting to get busy. Hopefully most of my stuff sells! They send the checks out next week so I guess I'll find out then.

Yeah, we did. DH does contract work on the side so we owed about $1200. We got that letter saying we would get $2100, so hopefully we get that soon!

I didn't do our consignment sale this year..... I just didn't have the time. I am passing on stuff, and have started to organize a bay-wide yard sale for May. I thought I'd try to just haul it out into my front yard instead of all of the way accross the city. Last time I barely paid for gas with what I sold.....
