Here's another post in our consignment sale season review! Zion has the insider scoop on the Mothers of Multiples Spring Sale. I checked it out last year as an outsider. Here's what I thought: http://stircrazymomsofdurham.blogspot.com/2013/03/chapel-hilldurham-mothers-of-multiples.html Both of us agree...it's a great stop to get everything you need for your kiddos.
If there is one lesson that having kids has ever taught me, it would definitely be "how to save money". I am elated to tell you all that the Mothers of Multiples for Chapel Hill/Durham will be having there bi-annual yard sale. Baby/Kids stock GALORE! I am a member of this club, but even if I were not, it would still be worth attending. Let me give you a glimpse into my world of consignment shopping.
With my first pregnancy I took $60 and bought an entire spring/summer wardrobe for boy/girl twins.
Since this is the spring yard sale I always stock up on swim gear- swimsuits $1, swim shoes $1-$3 and boys trunks $2. What a great deal!
Last year I purchased an outdoor crocodile seesaw for my kids for $5. That is still their favorite toy to play with outside, and for that cost it was worth it.
Last year I had a hard time finding water shoes for my daughter in her size. I managed to find a pair of lime green crocs, that were like new. I paid $2 for them and they lasted the entire summer as water shoes and a good "hurry up and put these on so we can leave" type of shoe, lol.
One more for the road...I missed out on a pair of red tricycles that sold for $5 each last year. You can bet your bottom dollar that this year I will not miss out!
My tips for you: get there as early as possible for the best prices. Bring cash, and bring a bag, basket or cart to carry all of your items. See the info below for more details, and check out the pictures of the merchandise for sale.
