Shopping Children’s Consignment Sales and Stores in Colorado Springs

Shopping Consignment in COlorado SpringsCSMB2
Most people believe that there are only four seasons of the year: summer, fall, winter, and spring. I, however, know that there is one more season, the season of consignment sales! As my absolute favorite of them all, I keep a mental paper chain counting down the days till the start of this annual highlight.

Before I hit the sales, though, I always do some prep work. I call it putting on my “consignment game face.” No, you won’t find me bulldozing other women to get to the bargain tub of Lego’s (well, probably not anyway). But you will find me with my cheat sheet notepad that has a list of what my boys already have, what they need for their current size and the next size up, and what would be nice to have (but that is not a necessity if the price isn’t right). This keeps me from becoming the token “Consignment Crazy” who attends every consignment sale. You’ve seen her, right? The woman who frantically piles clothing into her bag because she can’t remember what is in her kid’s closet and wants to buy fifteen more pairs of 4T jeans “just in case.” (Or maybe you ARE this lady?) Gasp!

So take inventory of your children’s closets, grab a friend, and let’s go save some money!

Megan has called Colorado Springs home since 2008 when she and her husband of twelve years moved here after serving for two years as Peace Corps volunteers in the beautiful country of Macedonia. She spent her time in Macedonia teaching in a village school, working alongside college professors at a university, and having long, luxerious coffee dates with some of the best people she has ever been priviledged to know. Megan's educational background is in Secondary English Education, and most of her working life has been spent teaching English to junior high students, a grade level that she absolutely adores. Starting this year, she has stepped away from the classroom to explore the world of Communications, and she is excited to be serving as the Strategic Communications Coordinator for a local charter school. When Megan isn’t working, she enjoys spending time with close friends and family; however, her introverted side is just as content being alone on her front porch with a good book and a hot (often re-heated multiple times) cup of coffee. Her interests also include writing, scoring deals at garage sales, and trying (but usually failing) to be creative with her sewing machine. Megan’s boys keep her on her toes with their crazy antics and energetic spirits, but they are always quick to settle down if it means snuggling up to their mama and reading, a pastime in which she happily obliges them.
