How to Save on Back to School Clothes - Consignment Sale Shopping Tips

Get Ready For School with Just Between Friends + Giveaway

I’ve shared my love of Just Between Friends and the Fort Worth sale MANY times on my blog – and yes, again it’s that time of year. I missed the spring sale because we were on vacation – so I am really looking forward to shopping this sale! I have my shopping list ready and it couldn’t get here sooner!


Our school plans for Lennox are a tad up in the air but I know there will be some essentials that I need to shop for, as well as some extras. Although the sale falls after the start of the school year, it is SO hot here in Texas right now, all the kids will be wearing summer clothes for quite a bit – so you mine as well wait to shop for fall clothes until the Just Between Friends Fort Worth sale!

For those of you who are not familiar with JBF Fort Worth – Just Between Friends is a large network of children’s consignment sales – with my local Just Between Friends being in Fort Worth. Just Between Friends Fort Worth is Texas’ LARGEST children’s and maternity consignment sale! The fall sale runs September 2nd – September 13th at Fort Worth’s Will Rogers Memorial Center – Amon G. Carter Exhibit Hall. See full schedule for more details and public shopping times. Bonus – if you are a first time parent or grandparent, you can shop early! Just go here to register for the first time shopping pass – registration ends September 3rd.

How to Get Ready for School with Just Between Friends

Make your list: The #1 thing you need to do before you head into the sale is have a list prepared – whether you write it down or keep it in mentally – you need to have one. It gets a bit overwhelming in the sale if you haven’t attended before – so keep that in mind as well! I always write my list down, as I know i’ll forget something!

Figure out your priorities: Does your child need shoes the most for school? Uniforms? Clothes?Sports equipment? Figure out which is the most important and head to that area first! You can save SO much money no matter what you shop for – but if you are like us and have a child who wears a uniform – there are huge savings to be found at the JBF Fort Worth sale. 

Earn Money = Saving Money: Do you have a pile of clothes from the last school year that you no longer need? Why not consign it at JBF Fort Worth and earn some extra cash. That cash can be used to buy clothes for this year or even supplies! Selling your items does not need to break the bank either, here are some tips on how to consign on a budget!

Volunteer! This isn’t exactly related to back to school but you really do get the BEST deals and BEST selection by volunteering and shopping EARLY! The more you volunteer, the earlier you get to shop, the more deals there are to be found! I always volunteer and encourage others to as well – it really is the best time to shop!


Other than what I mentioned above, I have a number of other posts with lots of tips on how to make the most out of your JBF and Consignment Shopping trips! Here are a few of the most helpful posts:

    I used to head straight for the shoes. Now my daughter has moved into adult shoe sizes, and I’m a little lost about where to start.
