The idea that either of my own children would own only seven outfits made me feel taken aback for a multitude of reasons, namely that I might be a wee bit addicted to buying them clothes. I can't seem to help it! They are both so cute, have nearly opposite senses of style and I can't bring home something for one without getting something for the other...
Before you get too far thinking that I'm out spending a fortune on my kids' wardrobes, here's my secret: I buy nearly everything at a fraction of what it would cost in the store or at all the mall.
That's right! Instead of spending far too much money on overpriced apparel that will be worn for one season or toys that will be passed over when the next fad comes around, I fully say no to wasting money and say yes to Just Between Friends Milwaukee.
If you have never attended a Just Between Friends event before, you're missing out. These nationwide consignment sales help families and communities across the country save money and make money by providing quality items at bargain prices for kids.
No matter if you arrive to shop with designated purchases in mind or simply want to browse to beef up your child's closet or pick up gifts for birthdays, the holidays and more, JBF is a not-to-be-missed sale for everyone. These bi-annual events provide exactly what you need for the upcoming season, whether that be snow pants, soccer cleats, a Halloween costume, dolls and accessories, a jogging stroller or more.
I spent quite a few hours at the JBF Milwaukee sale this past spring and still can't get over the pure enormousness and variety of what was available at rock bottom prices. Every age, every color, every style, every everything!
Need any of this?
Or how about some of this?
There is just no reason to buy retail when these bargains are waiting and I, for one, am giddy with anticipation for the upcoming fall sale. If you're within driving distance to the Milwaukee area (if not, you can find an event near you), then mark your calendar because you're not going to want to miss this!
