I don't keep things around that we don't use. All my kids' clothes are passed along to a friend whose kids are girl-boy-girl, just like mine. If it doesn't go into my Bargain Fair bin, it goes to a local thrift store. So when I got an email from the women who organize a large kids' consignment sale twice a year, asking if I'd like to consign, I didn't have much.
All it took was one facebook post to my friends, asking for gently used toys, clothes, and gear, and I have 3 van loads of things to get priced for the sale! I no longer have a family room, and my husband is ready to call Hoarders! I have so much that I've invited people to come shop a pre-sale in my home so that everything will fit in 2 vans.
See all those clothes? There are 2 more loads in the laundry room to be washed!
We have more big stuff, too, that we really hope to sell before the sale!
(It's even migrating to the living room!)
We are shown time and time again how blessed we are, and we thank God for giving us such wonderful friends to go through life with. To Tonya, Jessica, Mindy, Shelby, and Brandi, thank you for going through life with me, and for cleaning out your homes to help us bring our daughter home!
And now I can't wait for March 5, when I'll be done pricing everything, and when all this stuff heads to the consignment sale!
