Since we'll be limited on income because of our move to KC (especially at first), I'm interested to know of any THRIFT STORES - CONSIGNMENT SHOPS - for inexpensive kids & adult clothing and also furniture & household items.

Any recommendations for where to shop? Thanks :)

Any other advice on how to cut corners or pinch pennies will be appreciated too :) Thanks!

What can I do next?

As far as Thrift Stores I've had pretty good luck with Major Thrift off 47th and Mission road.

I like Children's Orchard for resale baby/kids clothes. They do bag sales a couple times a year where you can fill a bag for $5 and it's a great deal because they try to keep nice clothes and name brands in the store so you end up getting nice clothes for a fraction of dept store prices. You'll probably have more success finding clothes for your youngest, mine are 2T and 4T and I've found the older they get the less selection there is. There are several locations throughout the KC area and I do believe there's one in/near Gladstone where you'll be.

Another great place is called Cargo Largo in Independence,MO off of 35th and Noland Rd. They acquire their merchandise (food,household,clothing,furniture,personal items,garden,etc!!) from damaged,lost,unclaimed freight shipments. They do "tote day" where you buy a $5 tote and whatever you can fit into it you get 25% off on those specified days. I've got 3 totes because I always found more than could fit in just one :) They have a website too

Hope this helps!

Hey M.,
There is a really good thrift store right down the street from Midwest Seminary. It is Goodwill at the intersection of Vivion and N Oak. There is also another one north on N Oak called DAV, it is one the West side of N oak. Actually there are quite afew goodwill/ thrift stores right off N oak whether you go north or south. I frequent them since i hate spending alot on my kids clothes when they outgrow them in 6 months.
Let me know where you all are going to be living and I can get you directions to quite a few consignment/ thrift shops.

I highly recommend the Children's Orchard for children's clothing/equipment. There are a few of them around (Independence, Lees Summit, and Blue Springs for sure). Prices are extremely low and the quality is great. They don't accept anything that isn't in good shape. They carry sizes from newborn all the way up to 10 or 12 (I can't remember which), so it works even if you have older kids. Since kids outgrow their clothes so fast, it's a great place to go to shop for them. And when they outgrow them, you can sell them back for cash or store credit. They also carry items such as strollers, cribs, infant bathtubs, diaper bags, etc. and a wide array of toys. They have some new clothing and toys as well as shoes, hats, and so forth. The selection obviously varies by location since what they sell is what people have brought to them, but they frequently have sales that are well worth it. For example, a few weeks ago they had a bag sale that included all resale clothing in the store. They gave you bags and everything you could fit in a bag was only $5. It was great. I stocked up for my son and only spent $15. Anyway, I guess that's enough rambling. I can never say too much about the Children's Orchard. I don't know how I got along before I knew about it. It's a great place to shop!
