Saving Big with Consignment Sales {and a Just Between Friend's Fort Worth Giveaway}

I think saving money is on the minds of most moms. We work hard to budget, meal plan, and save where we can. Kids do their best to ruin these plans. They just. keep. growing. And they need stuff. Not as much as some would leave you to believe. But still, lots of stuff.

The best way I've found to keep kiddo costs under control is Just Between Friends Fort Worth. JBF Fort Worth is Texas' large children's and maternity consignment sale. It is a massive, one stop shop for all your clothing and gear needs!

I've always known that I save money shopping at JBF. This is the first time I've done a real analysis. I kept track of the items and prices of everything I bought for my 4 year old daughter (size 4t) at the fall sale. 

I spent $53 on 5 tops, 3 pants, 2 pairs of jeans, 2 dresses, a pair of tights, and a jacket. This includes many items from GAP and a Mini Boden top!

Comparing these items with similar items from the same brands, the cost adds up to $263. That's a savings of $210 or 80%!

Now, that's full price retail. When I buy items at the store, they are generally on sale. So let's for sake of argument assume I bought everything at the store at 25% off. It would still come to $197.25. JBF still scores me a a 78% savings.

The $53 bought about 75% of my daughter's winter wardrobe. We had her heavy winter coat from last year. Several tops were bought for her as presents. And, I make a lot of her church and everyday dresses. Even if I would have needed another couple of tops and dresses I couldn't see having spent more than another $15 for a complete winter wardrobe!
