Yesterday was Pick Up Day the smaller consignment sale. I’ve got my stuff back & my money and I still haven’t decided what I think about the sale yet.
I ended up with 130 items at the sale and I had 75 items left. So I didn’t even get rid of half my stuff. I averaged about $1.55 per item which is better than if I’d tried to deal with a yard sale but I generally average a little higher than that.
I’ve still got some nice stuff left. I’ll likely try to sell some online and there is a possibility that I’ll try a couple of local consignments shops but truthfully I don’t really like either of them (and rarely make more than $10-$15 a month when I have my stuff there).
The Money : $85
$85 is good money but I’ll admit to being a little disappointed with the total. I had been hoping for about $150 and a lot less stuff but it is what it is. I have less stuff and I have $85 that I didn’t have last week. $85 will still make a nice size extra payment on one of credit cards and it will get us a little closer to being debt free.
Between the two sales, I’ve made $655.62 on the kids outgrown clothes and spent $125.50 on clothes that fit them now and some clothes that will fit them later. I definitely came out ahead.
