I used to be great at second-hand clothing shopping...before I had my 2nd child. Now it's much harder to browse, and it does require a lot of time to dig up quality stuff. I especially miss yard sales, but it's too much hassle to get the kids in out in out of the car, ya know? Next summer when the baby's older, I'll leave them with DH and hit the yard sales alone.
I haven't tried buying clothing on ebay yet...only diapers and I do get great deals on those. I also plan to sell them after they've been outgrown. We have a new/gently-used baby consignment shop opening up here in town and I plan to buy/sell/trade there also. (We had one before and I was so disappointed when they closed).
As far as GOOD, I have another option opening up. DH is talking about selling the house and finding another. Maybe we can work some of this debt into our mortgage and just have one payment each month. I'll have to look into it. I've heard of people getting second mortgages for this reason, but I really don't know what I'm talking about until I get more info...
It will be good to move. I love this house but the neighbors are rotten! I can't believe how much unprovoked hostility they have shown to us and our pets. Until lately DH was talking about adding on to make enough room for all of us, but now we can think about just getting a bigger place (out of town so I can have my own garden, chickens, etc.) It will be a nace change.
