I love consignment sales at churches. Especially half off Saturdays that some of them have….
Mount Paran does some great ones. http://www.all4kids.com/
As does Moms of Multiples.
I have found cloth diapers (prefolds) for 10 cents each. I have found socks for 25 cents. A bike for 10 bucks and training wheels for 3.50. I have gotten books, games, toys, swings, bouncers….You name it!
Typically garage sales usually yield cheaper stuff, but you do have to hunt harder. So if you are looking for something specific, children’s consignment sales are good.
I try not to bring all 3 kids (sometimes there are stroller restrictions). If its a mad house you will be happy they aren’t getting stepped on. Also if you can bring a friend to help you search. Let your husbands watch them:)
I was inspired to write this out after reading a new consignment list at the Atlanta With Kid Travel Blog.
