Hubby and I decided that it was time to get rid of the baby stuff that was just taking up space. So I decided to find a consignment sale and sell everything. It was quite the process getting everything ready to sell. Baby clothes, strollers, swing, bouncy seats, play mat, etc. I signed up for a Saturday 9am volunteer shift. I was up until 4am the night, well morning before I was scheduled to volunteer and drop everything off. So I had a nice nap before going in. I was so excited to get rid of everything and a little nervous that no one else would want our stuff. The sale started a couple days later and I was able to see what sold at the end of each day. I'm not going to lie it was very nerve wrecking waiting. I was so excited to see that our strollers sold the first two days. All of our big stuff sold in the sale and most of the clothes. I still have a lot of clothes left, come on I was selling newborn-18m sizes. I've now signed up for a second sale, hoping to sell the rest of the clothes, starting in September. I learned my lesson with the fist sale, start and finish early. That way I can go through their rooms again and find anything that they no longer use and add it to the sale.
With the first consignment sale I went shopping for Emma. I bought her a "new" Fall wardrobe for under $80. Don't get me wrong I'll probably get her more clothes because I just love buying them clothes. Thankfully Emma is the only one in need of clothes, Addi should be able to wear Emma's smaller clothes. Emma was ecstatic when I showed her the clothes.
So here's the list:
: 13 new shirts (one in the wash)
: 4 pair of pants (3jeans and 1 leggings)
: 2 zip up hoodies, 1 sweatshirt (her favorite piece) 1 vest
: 2 long nightgowns, 5 sets of pjs
: Husker Cheerleader outfit
For Addi :
: 3 piece pjs
: Blue jumper with shirt and pants.
and not pictured: they each got a pair of shoes.
I am so excited for fall now and can't wait to see Emma in her new clothes!
