You can save money AND make money by taking advantage of consignment shopping! For clothing, here's a list of Ramona's recommended consignment shops:
Consignment shopping isn't just restricted to clothing; 2nd & Charles is building a store here in Charlotte at Tyvola Road and South Boulevard. The shop specializes in buying and selling books, CDs, DVDs, video games and more.
For sports gear, check out Play It Again Sports, which buys and sells used sports equipment.
