25 Items for $6.25!

Where can you go and buy 25 items of children's clothing or toys for $6.25? Kidz Kaboodle Children's and Maternity Resale in Tacoma!

Apparently, my friends and I are some of the last to know about this great find. Kidz Kaboodle is a consignment-type store. The last weekend of every month they do a quarter sale on their "items simply not purchased for resale due to a small stain, missing button, or just being too faded."

They open at 10 a.m. and the line is already long with anxious mothers. According to the owner who I spoke to and other experienced mothers, it can be somewhat risky to your physical being. Tables are filled with clothing and customers are left to weed through them. I could tell the mothers who had been there before...they're fast and know what they're looking for, so watch etiquette is left at the door!

I left with 25 great items of clothing, many name brands. I washed all of the them and they looked even better! It's a great way to stock up for this season and even next summer. If you have the time, go next door to their actual store and find super sales on even nicer items.

Oh, and one last thing, don't forget your big black garbage bag or giant blue Ikea bag, you're going to need it!
