Savvy Shoppers? This one is for YOU!

As a Mom, I know how pricey it can be to raise kids. After I had my first son, I realized I couldn't always buy top name brand clothes or brand new items for him. It wasn't feasible to purchase things all the time, especially only having one income, from my Husband. I found a few local kid resale shops and I was hooked. My kids grew so fast. They had an entire closet full of clothes before they were even born! I can't count how many times I'd grab something, only to find out he no longer fit it. Tags and all, he never wore it and I had to get rid of it. The local resale and consignment shops really helped me get through buying (and selling) new and used clothing items and kid toys for the kids. Once Upon a Child was one I went to often.

My sister had always told me about a company called Just Between Friends. She had nothing but great stories to tell as well as great deals! If you haven't heard of Just Between Friends, check out their website. JBF had been featured on Good Morning America and other channels explaining their concept. The founders, Shannon and Daven have really wrapped their minds (and hearts) around this program which has been able to help many parents, grandparents and others. 

If you'd like to get involved or attend a sale, be sure to check out their schedule. They may be coming to a city near you. For those in the San Diego area, they will be in La Mesa in October. I just signed up and am very excited. I am constantly clearing out my growing boys' closets and I'm sure Grandma has plenty of toys to get rid of too. With the recent finds my sister shared with me, I'm excited to see if I can find things for my own boys.
