Man I got made a very happy lady today. I was looking for a Christmas dress for dd so I was shopping consignment stores in my area. I came across a bundle of diapers in a clear box labled "swim diapers". Well, I looked in the box and they had a whole bunch of cloth diapers and covers in there!! I got 3 classic prorap size M covers for $.99 each and a couple size small bumkins knockoffs for $1.50!! Can you believe that? Jeez what a deal. I need to go there more often to see if they mislabel more stuff. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br>
Oh yeah, I also found the cutest dress for dd and it was only $2.50 and then I got 3 onsies, 2 sweaters, one kimono shirt (brand new, usually very expensive), 2 shirts for me, 2 sleepers, pair of jeans, and the diapers and the dress for only $30! I did so good today. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Wow, great job. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> Reminds me that when I started cloth diapering I asked on Freecycle for cloth diapers and a really nice lady gave me a huge box of them and I didn't even really know what I had. It was well over 300.00 dollars worth of cloth. Windpro AIOs, Bumkins, cashmere diapers, microfleece liners, boxes of paper liners, bummis covers and totes...it was an amazing gift.

You lucky girl! When I asked our consignment store if they ever carry cloth dipes, they looked at me like I had three heads. Obviously, I live in a very non-CD friendly area.

LOVE finding a great deal! Congrats!! I went to the best baby store yesterday, and was just hoping they'd have some fluff, but of course not.... They had EVERYTHING else though. I wanted to give them a few tips on getting some beautiful slings, fun fluff, etc. Oh well! They're loss, I guess. I keep going to these stores and consignment shops thinking I'll find a fluffy treasure, and have about given up hope, so thanks Kathryn for renewing my hope!! I'll keep searching!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> Enjoy your stuff.

Yeah, this store said the same thing. They said they were "swim diapers". <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/eyesroll.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="roll">

There are a few consignment shops like that around here. It's so annoying to go in and they still expect you to pay more than wal-mart. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:

<a href="http://www.freecycle.org" target="_blank">www.freecycle.org</a><br><br>
Most communities have them. Someone posts something they are giving away for free and all people have to do it pick it up. Others also post things they want to see if someone has one they are willing to give away.<br><br>
I just got some free old tires I am going to be using in my garden in spring.
