This Week’s Thrifty Finds

I have a new hobby…um, okay, obsession: consignment sales & thrift stores & CraigsList, oh my!

Phew. The first step to getting help is admitting you have a problem, right? =)

What a great problem to have though! I’ve gotten so many great deals in the past few weeks. I just have to share them with you!

Here are just a few of my favorites:

1. Radio Flyer Steel & Wood All Terrain Wagon $35 (retails for $149.99!!)

Baby A LOVES her new wagon!

2. Vera Bradley Diaper Bag $20 (newer syles & patterns retail for $99-$135)

Cute pattern & lots of room in this diaper bag for both Baby As!

3. BabyBjorn Potty Chair $2.50 (normally retails for $29.99)

Not sure if we’re ready to potty train but at least Baby A has a cute chair!

4. Ergobaby Carrier with Newborn Insert $100 (normally retails for $135)

Not the biggest discount but it was hardly used & the pattern I wanted.

Retail price of 4 baby items: $413.98
Price I paid: $157.50
Total Savings: 61.5% off retail!

All the items listed were purchased at a local church consignment sale & on Craigslist. I encourage you to check out some church sales in your area! And be offer cash and same-day pickup on Craigslist finds. The Ergobaby carrier was listed for $120 and had been listed for over a month. I offered $100 cash & pickup the same day I emailed. They came down in price to sell quickly!

So, tell me

-What has been your best consignment/thrift store/Craigslist find?

-How much did it save you off retail price?
