Today my wife got a phone call from a friend who just visited the local children’s consignment store. She informed her that they were having an end of summer clearance sale on all their summer clothes. Since we have two small girls my wife decided it would be a good idea to at least go take a look and try to scout out some leftover deals.
The consignment store was offering a deal where you could stuff a bag full of clothes and only pay $15. I thought it would be a pretty good deal if the bag was a decent size. I’m all about saving money so I gladly watched the children while she went to scope things out.
About an hour and 20 minutes later she returned with her bag full of clothes. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that the bag was a decent sized bag. She actually crammed exactly 40 articles of clothing into the bag. All of the clothing was name brand clothing and looked new. So she bought the clothes for about $0.38 each. The best part is that everything she bought was something she would have probably purchased anyway. Sure it’s mostly for next summer but you just can’t beat a sale like this!
If you really want to save some money in the clothing budget check out consignment stores. Most of them only buy back clothing that looks new so there is still plenty of wear left in the clothes. Most of the clothes are also top name brand clothes, so you can be stylish and still save a lot of cash!
