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.  🙂

  1. Um. I love consignment shops for myself. Is that bad? Last year I bought a pair of GAP shorts (pure white, perfectly clean), and an Ann Taylor Loft shirt with tags for $5.

    1. That’s awesome! No, that’s not a bad thing at all! 🙂 I haven’t found any really good thrift stores for adult clothing. Maybe there will be a good one wherever we move to this summer…
