What’s a good way to stay on a budget, look hip, and make some extra cash in a recession? Consignment shops! Yes, you heard right. Second-hand treasures are the new thing.
Who wants to pay full price when you can pay less than half?
Seriously, we can all use a little extra cash in our pockets right now. Recently, I’ve gotten into this whole thing. Okay, so the other day I found a necklace that reminded me of Jackie O. To give you an idea of what I’m talking about check out these two pictures below:
Who can beat that? I spent $4 on two shirts. In total, I spent $27.
I also just became a consigner. This is what you become when you give some of your old stuff to the consignment store. They sell it for you and you get a profit. It’s a pretty sweet deal. My shop gives me 50% of the profit. Not bad for stuff that was sitting in my closet vacationing in dust. If your still interested, check out this search engine. It shows you local consignment shops. You have nothing to lose, except clothes and items you don’t use anyway.
Are you already familiar with the consignment store craze? If not, do you see yourself checking some out?
