This afternoon I met up with a friend to shop the half-priced portion of a consignment sale going on this weekend. I was actually going to be participating in the sale, but the time to get everything ready was too short, the location too far away, and we had too many things going on.
I do have to say that for me, shopping during the last couple of hours paid off really well. I was able to pick up two shirts for Paul at half price. For Matt, I got overalls, a sweater vest and polo, and two shirts. All of this for about $24, and they were good brands like Talbot Kids and Gymboree.
And I got a Mariner's backpack for a dollar. (I know it was a promotional item, but I didn't have to collect the milk products for it.) I was really pleased with what I found.
