From the time I found out I was pregnant, I started accumulating items in the house. Friends and family loaded me up with gifts at my baby shower, I got hand me downs from other parents, and then there were all the additional items that I went out and bought because I just had to have them for the new baby. As Alex grew, I boxed up the things he grew out of and stashed them in the basement and garage and kept accumulating new items. It is amazing how much stuff you can accumulate with kids, and there are always more things that you “need.” Kid’s stuff isn’t cheap.
Got a full house? What do you do with all that stuff when you are done with it? You can have a garage or yard sale, but my experience has been they are more work then they are worth. I make more money working the same time on the computer then sitting in my yard trying to sell stuff. Consignment sales are a great option, but they only take place certain weekends, and if the stuff doesn’t sell you still have to deal with it later.
There are several family consignment and resale shops around Portland. Consignment and resale shops are a great place to get rid of some of the baby and kid items your kids have grown out of. Some shops buy items right away while others put the items on consignment and once the items sell, you get some money or store credit towards items that your kids can use now. Consignment and resale shops are also a wonderful place to buy the things you need for your kids including clothes and toys.
