The midwest is experiencing an unseasonably warm spring (as in, temperatures 30 degrees higher than normal), and I realized that all of the shorts I have for C are a size too big. ARGH. Um, weather, didn’t you know that I don’t want to spend money buying C more clothes that he’ll only wear for a short period of time??!!
Enter the consignment shop. I bought C two pairs of shorts, one sleeper, and one two-piece set of pajamas for $16. SIXTEEN DOLLARS. Ok, seriously – how did I not find out about this sooner?! Our local baby consignment shop has onesies for $1.50 (or 10 for $10!), sleepers for $4.50, shorts for as low as $2.50, etc. And they’re mostly name-brand items! Unless there’s a specific item I want or a huge sale at my favorite name-brand store, I have found my new go-to place for anything that C needs.
People, you have to check this out. It’s awesome sauce.
