Consignment Sale Success!

I had a very successful day at the consignment sale yesterday, and I am so excited to share my finds with you!

I feel really good because I didn't get carried away and stayed right on budget for clothes for my girls. I also found some equipment that we really needed and easily saved us over $100 on those items alone!

Here are the clothes I got for my girls. I paid right around $100 for everything pictured here.

This is close to an entire summer wardrobe for my 2 year old, plus a number of items the baby needed to fill in her hand me downs. It also included 3 pairs of shoes! Here are a couple of my best bargains:

The flowered Baby Gap Sunday dress was $5, and the Janie and Jack capri set was $7. On Janie and Jack's website I found similar pants for $34 and similar tops for $28! And this set was in perfect condition.
The equipment that I got included two Kidco hardware mountable stair gates for $20 each and edge guards for our hearth for just $2!

I also bought a little scooter for my two year old. It was just five dollars, and I thought it would be the perfect thing for when the weather gets warm. I didn't even think she knew what a scooter was, but she immediately put her foot on and started scooting! Then she said, "Mommy, you can try," and instructed me to, "put my foot like this . . . ." :-) She was so excited.
My consignment sale finds are much more interesting than my grocery shopping this week, so I'll just give you the totals so you can see how I'm doing in the budget for the month:
CVS - $5.10
Harris Teeter - $18.10
Target - $9.13
Walgreens - $7.33 & $23.50
Refund from Wegmans - $4.39
Total spent this week: $58.77
Total spent this month: $169.27
Total left in budget: $210.73

  1. Awesome, Liz! I went to the consignment sale in Manassas last weekend and got some great deals, too! Also, thanks for the heads up on the Gap/Old Navy 30% off coupon. I was able to get some great deals at Old Navy this weekend. I'm not sure I'm satisfied w/ the quality of Old Navy's clothing, but I'm going to give them one more try.


Thanks for commenting. I love to hear your feedback!
