Since moving back to GA, I've shopped at a huge consignment sale in our area. This sale features baby, children, and teen clothing & shoes, bedding, tons of toys, books, games, movies, etc. With 4 little grand blessings to buy for, its a lot of fun to go look and find them goodies. I usually have a list of sizes and what their moms want for them ~ and after I cover the essentials, I get to throw in some goodies when I find them!
This sale I got my Cutler boys a little tykes picnic table, several outfits for each for the 3 of them and pajamas! I got Aiden a little tykes basketball goal, outfits, and jammies. And our house got 4 new to us Vegie Tales CD's for the little guys to watch when they visit. Amy and I got 2 scrabble games for the letter pieces....we found some cute projects on pinterest to do with them. The 2 games cost $5 total. I also found Will 2 nice pairs of cargo shorts for the summertime.
The basketball goal and the picnic table were the 2 things I really wanted for the boys. Robert, Thomas, & Alvins backyard is fenced in, so their table is going outside for spring/summer fun. There were 6 basketball goals ranging in price from $10-$15, and one stuck in the back for $2. It was an easy choice! The $2 came home with me, we have to buy a ball to go with it. Walmart has some smaller size sports balls for kids so that's where we will go.
Since I volunteered at the sale, I earned some $$ credit for time "on the job", so out of pocket, my cost was $20 for all that I got!
I found the boys incredibly cute stuff. I found Robert some size 4T jeans that appear to have never been worn for $1 each, he got 3 pair. They love Cars, so they got car jammies, I even found Alvin some to match his big brothers! Aiden is into Toy Story right now and I found him a cute toy story shirt and 2 pairs of jammies also.
Consignment shopping is the way to go for little ones. They outgrow their clothes long before they wear them out (usually), so its a great money saver.
Its definitely worth seeking out these sales, especially if you have lots of littles to buy for!
Now, someone needs to have us a grand daughter blessing cause all the girlie stuff is adorable!
