Save with the Changing of the Seasons

The following Everyday Savings Tip comes from, Jaime:

With all of the warm weather her in Ohio, I’m sure I’m not alone in working on changing out clothes in my children’s closets to adjust for our higher temperatures. Here’s a savings tip to focus on while druding through this project.

Take the clothes and shoes that your children have outgrown to your local consignment shop. I like Once Upon a Child who pays cash on the spot for items they wish to buy from you. Then, use the cash that you have received to help purchase new clothes for your children.

Sometimes, depending on what I find, I’ll use that cash while at the consignment shop to purchase the next sizes for my children to get even more bag for my buck. Other times I’ll save the cash and wait for the next sale at Kohl’s with a 30% code and cash back! Happy spring and savings!


While Jaime’s tip mentioned Spring, with Fall being here this is a great way to help purchase the seasonal items for your family too!

    How do you get the cash back at Kohls? I bought over $100 in teh store and am still waiting for the cash back. I asked the clerk how we got the cash back. The clerk told me they would mail it to me and that was a year ago. Of course I don’t shop there anymore.
