As They Grow

Need to get rid of your kid/baby clothes, toys, games, furniture, books, sports equipment, and everything else related to baby?  Stroller, carrier, bumbo, boppy, diaper bag, hair bows?

As They Grow is a city wide consignment event that lets you do just that.  You pick your price, tag your clothes, drop it off to them at the location, and they put them on racks and sell them!  It’s truly brilliant the way they set up and run everything.  It will be in mid March this year and really crept up fast!

I didn’t sell anything last year, but went to buy clothes and made such a killing for all 3 of my kiddos.  I saved so much money and bought lots of cool toys and books to give as Christmas presents to my kiddos.

If you don’t want to sell, that’s okay too!  Just go and buy and enjoy the great deals!

Maybe I’ll see you there!  Last year I ran into like 3 people from my previous ward.  I am totally going to beat them to the 5t-6 sized clothes to get my kid a nice Sunday suit! You know who you are! *wink*

There is another consignment event tentatively scheduled for July put on by another local group.  They are still trying to track down a location.  From what I hear, As They Grow is much more organized and just plain better for what ever that’s worth!

Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree

Well, not exactly. Last night I went to THE CHILDREN’S ORCHARD because a friend told me about their “$5.00 bag sale” that ran from 6-8pm. This store is one of those places where you can sell your kid’s gently used clothing and toys and buy gently used items for much cheaper than retail prices, even when the clothes are new and still have the original store tags on them.

So they passed out grocery sacks and you were allowed to grab and shove as many clothing items into the sack and only pay $5.00 for the entire bag when you were done. You just had to make sure the handles touched when you were holding the bag closed. The clothing items had to have the green tag though… I unfortunately had to empty my bag and start over upon learning the “green tag” rule, but I still make off with some great deals!

I found some church clothes and shoes, patriot ensembles, little rompers, and just plain cute stuff for the boys. They were in great condition too! Some items didn’t have the green tag so I had to pay the full price, but when all was said and done I spent $19 bucks and some change and got quite a few outfits that they can wear now and grow into. I am so excited for the size 2T church outfit I got for Mikey, because he had the exact same outfit in a size 6-9 months. This means I just might have boys matching in a few Sundays!! I call it their heart breaker ensemble- black pinstriped pants, white buttoned down shirt, red velvet vest, and a matching black necktie. I’m thinkin Christmas pictures might be formal this year =o)

So I want to know more about these type of places in Las Vegas and especially when stores offer these changing of the seasons/clearance/clear out sales!! Anyone know of any? My husband has to remind me often though that a person can go broke on a good deal…. I will admit I am getting better at not buying just because it’s on sale, but I might as well stock up for the next year and buy items when they’re dirt cheap!!! I do have self control. I do have self control. I do have self control!
