I am bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. I’m burning the midnight oil, but I’m still buzzing from the great afternoon I had today… I finagled a VIP Pass to the Green Jeans Consignment Sale in South Park, and I just got myself one heck of a new wardrobe!!!
I’ve been working to get my clothes ready as a consignor for this sale for weeks. It was a lot of work, but after going on my rather extravagant shopping spree, I’m glad I’m put in the effort. Perhaps, I’ll make enough to throw a little dirt over that $268 hole I dug today.
I don’t often spend much money on myself, so it seems kinda like a big deal to me. But, let’s be honest… for 22 items of clothing, I think I made out like a bandit! I did the math for you… Yep, that’s $12.18 per item. Not bad right? Now, consider that I bought brands like Theory, AG Jeans, J Crew, Anthropologie, Banana Republic and Ann Taylor and it makes it sound even better!
Get this… I went and looked up each item to find it online (or it’s equivalent) of what it cost in the stores. Wanna know the total? $1,690.45. Which means, I saved $1,422.45 and $64.66 per item. Hard to argue with that, right? So now that I’ve convinced you that consignment sales are a good deal (duh!), here’s an even better reason to hit the Green Jeans Sale this weekend…
True, it kinda sucked when I dropped off the clothes to consign and things were picked through and turned down. But, when I was on the flip-side and doing the shopping, I was really glad that Cindy and Dana (the gals that run this show) so carefully made sure that every item was up to snuff (brand and quality-wise).
Wanna see my finds?
|See that pink and white stripe top? It’s Theory and retails for $245.
