Based on the earning report that I just saw for the consignment sale from this past weekend, I broke even on clothes for my boys this spring and summer.  In the past I assumed that people spent money on clothes for their children, and while that is sometimes necessary, I have found that nearly all of my boys’ clothes can be purchased at consignment sales at which I am also selling clothes.  Even if I only sell $50 worth of clothing, that is more than sufficient to buy consigned clothes for both of them if I shop carefully.  With the exception of blue jeans (which rarely make it through a boy without holes!), I’ve never had anything on the “need” list that wasn’t met at a consignment sale.

Now if I can just conquer the temptation of the aforementioned sale emails…
