Fashion Friday Children’s consignment

June 19, 2009


This week $20.00 or less fashion trip features gorgeous grabs for the kids. I am a huge fan of Polo, Gap, and Gymboree. I rarely ever buy any other brand of clothing for my children. I love these brands for their quality, fit, and durability. They also have fantastic resale value. This week I embarked on a place in our town that sells children’s clothes, toys, and maternity wear. The Goodie Bag is a wonderful place to earn a little cash for  your children’s outgrown clothes or to spend a little cash on “new to them” clothing.

My twenty dollars bought

  • 2 Ralph Lauren Polo button down shirts
  • 1 Gap button down
  • 1 Gap t-shirt
  • 1 gap skirt
  • and 1 Gymboree sweat outfit

I  grabbed two complete outfits for my little girl and 3 shirts for my son… That works out to less than $3 an item. I enjoy going to consignment shops because the clothes are sorted and they are checked for quality.

Tips to spend less on your children’s clothes-


Buy a size ahead at the end of the season. (I all ready have all my son’s winter clothes brand new with tags from the gap for less than 60% of their retail cost)

Go to the outlets

Head to TJ Maxx and Target

Go to the department stores at the end of the season and use  their coupons!!!

Make a list of what you need to buy for each season- carry the list to remind yourself to search

Here is my winter must have list for my little guy-

3 pair of PJs

9 pair of underwear

3 pairs of jeans

1 pair of khakis

2 pairs of chords

1 Sweat outfit

3 Sweaters

2 Sweatshirts

5 button down

4 T-shirts

1 light jacket

1 heavy coat

1 rain coat

1 pair of sneakers

1 pair of rain boots (we love our rain boots and you can wear them in the snow since we have so little snow here)

Would be great to buy but not essentila

Snow boots

Dress shoes

For My little Gal-

3 pairs of PJ

3 pairs of jeans

4 pairs of leggins

*** I buy all the above essentials first and then I will buy other items if I get a good deal. I also have the list ready for the grandparents.
