One of the best ways we are making our money go farther is by taking advantage of the Kids Exchange Consignment Sale.
This mega-sale occurs once in the summer and once in the winter and is where we get the majority of Ella and Ezra's clothes. I pay on average $2-$3 per item...including shirts, pants, dresses, bathing suits, etc. I am always able to find "like-new" brand name items from the Gap, Carters, Old Navy, Janie and Jack, and The Children's Place.
They also have just about every other baby and child accessory/need/equipment that is out there...highchairs, pac-n-plays, strollers, cribs, toys, nursing pillows, blankets, shoes, dressers, car seats, toys, toys, and more toys.
Did I mention the toys =)
The sale is going on today thru Sunday and is held at the NC State Fairgrounds. You can find out all the details by clicking here.
This year I was able to get all of the kids summer clothes...and of course, a few toys =)
The favorites include a pair of Barbie roller-skates for $2...
