I don’t know if it’s just Minnesota or not, but we have these sales called JBF which stands for “Just Between Friends”. It is a completely organized sale for strictly kids stuff, and it’s AWESOME. I can’t even remember exactly how I found out about them, but I am so thankful that I did!!!! It’s a handful of women that organize it and they do a great job! You can consign your items…name your own price and then they take a percentage [i will have to look into this after baby #2 or 3!] and you get the money after the sale!!! It’s a great thing and Daddy P & I reaped the benefits last night! They have a presale open to new moms [have had and/or adopted a child within 12 months] and expectant mothers the night before the sale opens to the public. I have been able to get in on that presale for all of the sales I’ve been to so far. Once my ticket to the presale gets too old [coming up so soon *tear*], I am going to have to volunteer or leech on to one of my other friends that have had a baby or are expecting!!!! Call me Leechy! 😉 No, but in all seriousness this sale is something that I completely look forward to. We managed to grab on to 2 big bags full of goodies for little B for under $60.!!!! I can honestly say this would have cost us over $300 [at least!] if we were to have bought everything we found at full price. And yes, this stuff is used but we are careful to pick the gently used stuff and we both have a great eye for the best prices!!!! It’s always interesting because you can usually find the same thing at a reduced price as everyone picks their own prices!!! Alright, I’ve completely raved over this and now I’m done. LOL
In the same breath, I’d like to gauge just how
cheap frugal I am. I absolute LOVE me a good sale. It actually like gives me an adrenaline rush. Am I totally weird?! Haha. I also love garage sales and thrift stores, and yes, the JBF sales! Anyway…. I’m not sure if y’all know about the site Zulily.com but it’s a “deals site”. I hope you all are also aware of Baby Half Off and Babysteals, I follow those daily!!! I have also gotten a few things off of both sites and they are completely legit! 🙂 Anyway, I get a daily email from Zulily.com and today it was some holiday items and I wanted to check it out as they looked pretty cute. It’s always fun to grab a cute onesie here and there! Anyway, so I check it out and these onesies are on sale for $31.99. I guess these things retail for $52. Um, does anyone else get drop-jaw from these prices for a onesie???? I don’t think they’re even that cute… check it out.
What do you guys think???? I think these are ridiculously overpriced. Or… am I so overly CHEAP???! Tell me the truth!!!! 🙂
Alright ladies… [and any stray men that haven’t lost complete interest] … back to work !!!! I have a nasty desk that needs to be organized and swept. Gross.
Happy Thursday All!!!! Weekend… we’re almost there!!!!
