Frugal Father's make for Frugal Daughter's

Frugality is the practice of acquiring goods and services in a restrained manner, and resourcefully using already owned economic goods and services, to achieve a longer term goal

So like many, I like to shop a lot, and with a new baby on the way well it makes the desire to shop so much harder to resist. I grew up with a very frugal father, I appreciate him for it because I don't just go out and buy anything I think is cute. I like to find good deals, and when you find a GREAT deal, it can be very exhilarating. I love to garage sale but I work most mornings so find that option unavailable. Well, what's the next best option? Resale stores.

I have been buying things for our up and coming addition since the day we found out he was going to be a boy. I find when it comes to deals, you have to start looking early and don't be in a rush to find something. Allow yourself some time to find what you are looking for, and most likely you can find either the exact item or something very similar for a good price.

One of my absolute favorite resale shops is, Love Child Style Exchange. Formerly known as Buffalo Kids and also a former employer of mine when my daughter was just a baby. I think of this shop more like a resale boutique. With adorable clothing displays, great CLEAN atmosphere, wonderful staff, and best of all....great prices! You just can't go wrong here.

Here are the awesome deals on bigger items I have walk away with so far:

I paid $80 cash for this gorgeous travel system in perfect condition.(Original price: 199.98)

I paid $40 cash for this swing, I couldn't even find any type of wear that showed this was even used.(Original Price: 139.99)

So if you are in area, I suggest you stop in a visit this wonderful resale shop.
