Saving money on baby clothes

So, I absolutely love a good deal! When I find one I get what I call a "Savings high"! You know, the feeling you get when you know you are stretching your money a little bit further and doing better to serve your family while being a good steward of the money that God gave you. That feeling :)

Well I get that feeling every time a new season rolls around. That means it's time for Consignment Sale Shopping! I was introduced to a local consignment sale a while back from a friend that I work with and it was love at first sight. All the name brand, barely used clothes at a fraction of the price. It couldn't get any better than that.

The local consignment sale that I shop at happens twice a year and I can typically get my daughter's entire winter/summer wardrobe for around $75. Considering that I typically make that much when I sale her clothes/toys there you could say I get her wardrobe for free. It doesn't get much better than that!

For more wonderful ideas visit We Are That Family for more Works for Me Wednesday.

P.S. I know it's Tuesday when I'm writing this, but I have to get up and go to work tomorrow. Sue me :)


  1. I too love consigning, however it gets extremely hard once they get older. Now I'm back to buying entire wardrobes! NO FUN!

  2. Welcome to WFMW! I have never bought an outfit for my daughter b/c she gets tons of hand-me-downs and grandmas seem to fill in the rest:)

    I'm so glad to hear you praise the Lord in your post.I'd also like to invite you to my blog on Wednesdays as I review a chapter a week of the book "The Power of a Praying Parent."
