Never Throw Away – Today is National Consignment Day!

National Consignment Day

Fall has Begun

This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure for more information.

Fall has officially begun.  The air is cool and crisp.  The leaves are starting to change colors and fall.  The scent of wood-burning stoves fills the air.  Along with these wonderful things, fall prompts me to dig out the sweaters, long pants, coats, and boots.  My husband and I have pretty much everything we need for fall, minus a few items, however, our growing 2-year-old, does not.  This prompts me to make a few shopping sprees to our local consignment or thrift store(s) soon!

Standard BAGGU Reusable Bag

The BAGGU National Consignment Reusable Bag shown in the pictures below was provided to me to help spread the word about #neverthrowaway, #National Consignment Day by The RealReal.  You can purchase the BAGGU Reusable Bag here

This bag is great!  I love the rust color, especially now as we are going into fall.  The bag holds 50lbs (approx. the contents of 2-3 plastic grocery bags) and weighs less than 2 oz.  It fits comfortably in your hand or over your shoulder.  The bag is 100% Ripstop nylon and is machine washable.  It is machine washable (YEA!) and ethically made in China.  Order your BAGGU Reusable Bag so you can be more sustainable and thrifty!

Bring out the Fall Clothes

Since I am currently pregnant, I may need to pick up a few items for fall.  I really enjoy shopping, but really enjoy shopping at consignment and thrift stores.  I do like the rush of finding a great deal on a name brand item, for sure!  It is nice to be able to find something that someone else no longer uses or needs and get some great use out of it for me or my family.  This is a great way to be sustainable, not to mention save money (or make it) through consignment.

Sustainability & Consignment

Dictionary.com defines sustainability as: 1. the ability to be sustained, supported, upheld or confirmed.  2. Environmental Science. the quality of not being harmful to the environment or depleting natural resources, and thereby supporting long-term ecological balance.

I have purchased from local consignment/thrift stores for a number of years, and have also sold (& donated) some of my items through them.  I enjoy doing both, although shopping is my favorite (ask my husband!).  Sustainability is very important for me, especially as our little family is growing.  It makes me feel like I am getting a great deal while at the same time not being harmful to our environment.  Consignment is a great way to do both!  Consignment means being able to feed my need to shop and getting very high-quality items as well as being able to be sustainable!  Two birds, one stone!

I feel that not only is shopping at consignment shops enjoyable for me, it also helps me feel like I am doing something good for society by recycling things that are still good and saving them from being thrown away!

 

The RBAGGU Reusable BagealReal is an online consignment shop for luxury items.  You can find high-quality name brand items for a fraction of the price than you would find at the retail stores.   If you enjoy consigning to make a little extra money (and saving things from landfills (WIN, WIN) check them out to get top dollar for your high-quality pieces.  Also, if you enjoy getting name brand items for bargain prices (who doesn’t?) The RealReal is a great place to shop!  Get out and start shopping at your local consignment/thrift stores if you don’t already do so.  Stay sustainable and thrifty!

    • Hi, Mariah!
      Thanks so much for stopping by. I am thrilled to be helping to spread the word about National Consignment Day. I love shopping at consignment/thrift stores (way too much)! I need to do a major purge of clothes and other items that I have that I don’t use. I think that would be a great post as well to go right along with this one. I donate most things I don’t use/need anymore so others can get some good use from them. Blessings and I hope to see you again soon!

  1. Awesome! I love shopping at consignment/thrift stores! Half of my closet is probably previously owned things. So much cheaper and you get things no one else has, instead of the same in-season stuff everyone wears.

    • Hi, Kendall,
      I totally agree! Most of the stuff in my closet at this point is from consignment/thrift stores as well. I do a little sewing, so if I find something great I can do a little work on it if it isn’t exactly what I need. Yeah, WAY cheaper and that is so true, you get cool stuff that makes you stand out! Thanks so much for stopping by to read and share! I hope to see you back soon! Blessings, Sara

  2. Yes! Never pay full price for clothes!. We have 4 thrift stores in our little town but no consignment stores that I know of. I really like the local (not chain) thrift store. Every year they give back over $150,000 to our local churches.

    • Hey, Jen!
      Thanks for taking a look at my post! SO right! Clothes at retail are so, so, so over-priced! I agree. I love the thrift stores as well. The consignment stores are really nice too. That is awesome that they give back so much to your local churches every year! Thanks again and I hope to see you again soon!

    • Thank you, Naz!
      You are most welcome. It is very important to me to reuse and also to take care of our planet at the same time. We are supposed to be good stewards of what we have, so I think this qualifies! Thank you for stopping by. I hope to see you again soon!

    • Thanks, Cassondra!
      Yeah, buying new for a lot of things is a big waste of money to me. I totally agree. I have way to much fun at consignment/thrift stores! Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you again soon!
      Blessings!
