My kids reverted to yelling at our GPS while traveling home from a recent road trip to Nashville. I love Nashville, this is where Charity did my hair and told me about her sweet man JR and her baby Daisy. Anyway, my GPS has outdated maps, I need to pay 50 bucks and download new maps into it, but I'm in denial. We had lovingly named this GPS Cynthia, and man does she wish she could change her name. Inside this car is like an episode from the Rug Rats when Angelica would get mad at the babies. "You dumb babies," Angelica would yell; this cartoon character was the most self righteous three year old on television. My kids are now yelling at poor Cynthia who really doesn't know any better...or does she. Maybe it's another conspiracy to drive me crazy.

Here are some important Consignment Do's and Don'ts:
DO consider the Quality of the Item. Consignment Shops are not dumping grounds for everything you and your children have outgrown. The clothes must be in excellent condition. The toys as well.
DON'T bring your winter coats to Consignment Shops in June. Don't bring your old Halloween costumes in February. Focus on what's in season. Now.
DO be realistic about pricing. Even if the tag is still on it. Even if you never wore it. You are not going to receive the original price or close to it. Consignment shoppers are looking for Bargains.
DON'T forget about adult-size apparel. Many people assume that baby/children's goods are the only items that sell on Consignment. Not true. Many women shop for bargains for themselves and are looking for good-quality apparel in consignment shops.
DO consider maximizing your profits by using an on-line Consignment Shop. While many consignment stores take commissions of up to 40-50%, on-line Consignment Shops often charge much less.
