Saving Money on Kids’ Clothes

This morning I took my semi-annual load of stuff to sell at a children’s consignment sale.  This sale has been such a financial blessing over the years.  I discovered it almost 7 years ago when my oldest children were 3 and 1.  This sale is HUGE.  The owner has 2 sales per year: one for […]
