Are you a savvy shopper looking to save a few dollars? It seems every day a t-shirt is covered in paint or a hemline is just a little too short. Either way, I am running out for new clothes at least once a month. A budget-friendly and eco-friendly option is to visit our local consignment shop.These unique stores offer families a way to purchase gently used clothing without breaking the bank. Consignment shops also allow for you to make money by giving clothing a second life. Every store has selling rules (dates, number of items and payback features),so make sure to check each store’s website for complete details.
