A friend recently asked me if I would be open to receiving some of her used baby girl clothes. Thankfully, she asked me via social media so she couldn’t see just how overly giddy I was over the mere mention of free clothes. I casually answered, “Well, I’ll consider it if the items are in good condition/not hideous.”
I went all caps-lock on her and was like, “HECK YES, I’M OPEN!!”
The truth is, I love deals and steals. Love them. I love new clothes, I love new shoes, I love accessories and makeup and hair things and shopping in general. But, when you combine the added thrill of getting a good deal into the shopping experience, I go a little nuts-o. I actually find joy in a midnight Black Friday excursion. TO WALMART EVEN. I’m a deal hound. I realize this and I’ve come to terms with it.
With the advent of Baby Girl in Black, we have some clothes shopping to do. I could be super cheap and just make her wear her brothers’ hand-me-downs that say, “I dig dirt” (because she could and probably will) or “Boys are awesome” (because she’ll probably agree with that statement at some point in her life). Plus, she most likely won’t even know she’s wearing clothes until she’s at least two or three years old. The problem lies in the facts that I very much care, I have a deep internal need to buy things and my pulse is only steadied by buccaneering deals as I buy these things.
Fortunately for crazy people like me, there is a local event that comes around a few times a year called Weecycled Wardrobe (sane people are welcome, too). It’s a giant consignment sale and they have EVERYTHING. Seriously. An abundance of clothes, shoes, strollers, toys, baby carriers, breast pumps, cribs, swings, activity mats and any other baby and young child related thing your deal-loving mind can manufacture. Praise the money-saving Lord (I mean, I feel like he’d be thrifty at least).
Here’s their blurb for the May event:
“WEEduse, WEEuse, WEEcycle! Come shop from over 25,000 spring & summer items at Weecycled Wardrobe Kid’s Consignment Sale, May 3-6, in Stafford, VA. Our prices are 60-80% off retail!
