If I could I would keep my kids toddlers. It is my favorite age. If I did that certainly they would wear out their clothing. But alas, my girls won’t stop growing, and they grow out of my favorite little outfits long before they wear them out. (And long before I am ready to give those cute little outfits up. Sigh.)
The same goes for toys and gear — especially with my second daughter. With my oldest, she always had age-appropriate toys. But Sissy has never had an eye for baby toys, she has always wanted big sisters toys. I mean never. So all of those baby toys I saved from her big sister just collect dust.
As part of my Project 365 Declutter, I am determined to cut down on the clutter in our house. The biggest cause of clutter in our house is toys. While I don’t mind the toys that get played with regularly, the toys that are just in the way getting tripped over or taking up valuable shelf space have got to go!
But what to do with all of those toys — all of those expensive toys?
I have talked about my favorite local consignment sale — Boutique for a Week — before. And if your home is as cluttered with unused toys as mine is, it’s time to register as a consigner for the spring sale.
What is Boutique for a Week? It is a week-long consignment sale where hundreds of moms (and dads) from all over Central Florida bring thousands of their kids’ outgrown clothes, toys, gear, decor, etc. to sell.
From nearly new to brand new with tags, you never know what you will find as a shopper at Boutique for a Week.
Seriously, local moms do yourself a favor, clean out the closets (and floors) and consign your outgrown baby and kids stuff with Boutique for a Week. You will get cash for your stuff and declutter your space at the same time.
For those of you who are not local, there are consignment sales like Boutique for a Week all over the country. Check out Consignment Mommies to find a consignment sale near you.
Consigners earn 65% of their sales and have the ability to set their own prices.
Don’t have time to tag your items? For those who are short on time, but still have a lot to sell, take advantage of Valet Tagging. This service takes all of the leg-work out of pricing your items by having Boutique for a Week volunteers price and tag your items.
The next Boutique for a Week sale begins March 12. Registration is now open for the sale. In past sales registrations spots have filled up, so register now!
Once again, I will be consigning at Boutique for a Week. In the past I have made between $120-$150, which is a great result to cleaning out closets!
So register and mark your calendar — I hope to see you at Boutique for a Week.

I just got an email about a week boutique….not sure if it is the one but Ill have to check. I have 5 kids so I have a ton of stuff we dont use anymore that I could really use the space for other things. 🙂
This is awesome, in RI where I am originally from, they have a huge consignment sale similar to this. Glad to see there is something like that here!
I am on a constant mission to declutter! We don’t have a lot of space, and I can’t stand tripping over things that do not get used, I love consignment because it saves me so much work and recovers some of my expense!
I will def be doing this! With 3 kids we have tons of cleaning out to do!

I have never been to Boutique for a Week but I’ve been to other local consignment sales. This one sounds great & I put it on my calendar to check it out.
