San Mateo’s Largest Children & Maternity Consignment Sale-March 6-9th

Last year September, I posted about Just Between Friend's (JBF) Fall sale and I scored so many wonderful things from it!  JBF has 2 sales a year, a spring and a fall sale, this year's spring sale will be starting March 6th-9th.  Why try to drive around town looking for good garage sales with no guarantee they will have good quality children's items for sale.  Why not just head to JBF and know there will be tons of good quality children's clothes, toys, furniture, books, and even maternity items.  When I was at the last sale, there were items from newborn through size 14 in kids for both genders!  There was so much to buy and tons of things that I wish I had waited until the JBF sale to buy!  The exact same potty bench that I had for Kiggster at home and spent some pretty pennies on was on sale for less than half what I paid for and it was in excellent condition.  I got a lot of new (yup, even new stuff) items for Kiggster like an … [Read more...]

Just Between Friends: Consignment For The Money Conscious & Busy Individuals

Have you ever thought about having a yard sale or garage sale to get rid of all that excess stuff piling up in the garage...and sometimes throughout the home?!  What if you don’t even have a garage or a yard to host a sale?!  Too busy to set one up?  Well, I came across Just Between Friends, the largest children’s and maternity consignment sales event and they are definitely the solution for our family!   I had seen them in the years past but didn’t want to consign because I was too busy to get my things ready, price all my items, and bring them during the designated hours.  But last year, Just Between Friends in San Mateo (that’s the one closest to my home) did something different, they started a valet tagging program!  That sounds luxurious doesn’t?!  Well, for those of us that have little time to spare but lots of baby and maternity items to rid ourselves of, this was a great option!  Before we delve into … [Read more...]

Nursing Saga Part III- Nursing & Maternity Essentials: HOTmilk Review

HotMilk Sweetheart Nightie So the saga continues...if you haven't had a chance to read the Nursing Saga Part II: Helpful Resources or Nursing Saga Part I: Breastpumps, you can click the links to read them now!  You can't share about nursing and not talk about an essential nursing component...nursing bras and sleepwear!  I have to say, I always had a hard time finding good quality and supportive bras even pre-pregnancy but when I started nursing...it was even worse!  I had gone to different cookie cutter maternity stores and department stores like Nordstroms and Motherhood to try to find nursing gear and quickly realized that there weren't very many options out there.  I bought two bras from Motherhood Maternity and of course I was measured incorrectly in the store and both the bras proved to be super uncomfortable and not very supportive.  One bra stated it was "wireless" but what I realized was it did not say it was … [Read more...]
