A Cowboy's Life: How to Shop Consignment + Giveaway

How to Shop Consignment + Giveaway

5:00:00 AM

As a mom to one boy whose day is not complete until he gets completely dirty, I prefer to not spend a fortune on clothes for him. Because of his love for all things dirt, I like to shop consignment sales (specifically Just Between Friends) so I can get cute clothes, but for a fraction of the price of retail stores.

But shopping consignment can be a little overwhelming for newbies. With so many rows of clothes, toys, shoes, etc. it can leave your head spinning! Here are a few shopping tips to make it easier and to find the deals you are looking for:

Don’t rush – Make sure you have plenty of time to search through every rack. There are so many items, you will need time to look at each one.
Make a list – Go through all of your kid’s closets and write down a list of what you need to purchase and the sizes.
Bring a bag – You will need something to carry all of your items in. You will need your hands free so you can search through the racks.

For those of you not familiar with JBF, let me fill you in.
