Episode Summary

Daddy Brad visits, Little Green Beans, a consignment store for maternity and baby gear in Austin, Texas. He and owner, Sharon Monroe talk about the savings that can be had by shopping at consignment stores vs. buying new at retail outlets. With a special appearance by our own Preggers, Danny and Miranda! Maternity and baby clothes aren't used for long periods of time. The use cycle of a lot of baby and maternity gear is often much much shorter than it's actual lifespan. When gently used (if at all used) items find their way to consignment stores, you can usually save at least 40% off new retail. It's not only a great savings to the buyer, but parents can also make money! Little Green Beans for example, prices items at a fair market value, and then when an item sells, they only keep 50%, the other 50% goes to the consignee. Little Green Beans also offers personal monogramming for any item in the store. And because children come in all shapes and sizes, and clothes that fit properly are sometimes hard to find, they also offer affordable alterations. Reduce, reuse, recycle and being otherwise green and eco-friendly means keeping items out of landfills whenever possible. Shopping, or participating in a consignment store for the items your family needs for your children is an easy way to help the environment, as well as help yourself and other local families save money.
