We are getting close to another change of season…which for moms means a big change of seasonal clothes for all the kids. This can be a HUGE time commitment but also a huge financial commitment. There are so many reasons why I love buying gently used items. My top three favorite reasons are
1. The PRICE
2. The variety
3. It cuts down on waste by reusing instead of tossing and remaking
Fortunately there are also so many different places to find great gently used kids items. You can shop resale stores such as Other Mothers and Goodwill or shop garage sales in your neighborhood. You can even trade with or give to other families that you know. In Arizona (and 13 other states), there are also Kid’s Closet Connection Sales. These are like a combination of garage sales and resale stores. Kid’s Closet Connection sets up consignment sales for a weekend at a select location. These sales usually take place March through May (just in time for the seasonal change over). For AZ, there is one coming up on March 13th in Glendale with ones in Scottsdale and Goodyear to follow (sorry we missed the Chandler one for this year).
Glendale, AZ – 67th Ave 1.75 miles north of Loop 101 – March 13-15, 2013
Scottsdale, AZ – NW corner of Thunderbird & Scottsdale Rd – April 18 – 20, 2013
Goodyear, AZ – McDowell 1/4 mile N of I-10 – May 9-11, 2013
Check them out on facebook for more information including pre-sale times for First time moms, Foster, and Military as well as 50% off days (usually the last day of each sale).
Have some of your own kids items that you want to sell? You can do that too. Just click on the specific location that you’d like to sell to and find the “Sellers” arrow on the right.
