Updated: Save money, make money at upcoming kids' consignment sales

Note: If you have information on additional sales, let me know in the comments section, and I'll add them to the list.

Once again, it's time for spring consignment sales in the Triangle -- the perfect chance for parents to save money on spring and summer clothing for their kids.

The sales are a great way to make a little money on the clothes your kids have outgrown and then turn around and save again by purchasing the next size up from other Triangle families.

In addition to clothing, many sales also offer toys, books, games, bicycles and baby equipment. Clothing sizes range from newborn to juniors. Some sales also offer maternity clothes.

Most sales offer early shopping days for volunteers and sellers, and many offer discounts in the final days of their sales.

Here's the beginnings of a list of Triangle sales:
