Fall 2019 Consignment Sales in Loudoun County, VirginiaFall 2019 Consignment Sales

Consignment sales are where some of the best deals can be found for children’s clothes, baby gear, toys, and more. You can fill an entire closet for a fraction of the price of purchasing new.

I realize that most my readers will be satisfied with sales in Loudoun County, but I’ve also posted a few that in neighboring counties that might be worth the drive for you. Before you jump in the car, please check out the sales’ websites for detail. Some have admission to the sale, others restrict children, and many have a half price selling period – all good to know.

Consignment sales are also a great way to make some extra money selling your gently used stuff. For example: that baby swing in the basement that none of your kids would sit in for more than a few minutes could bring you in big bucks. This list is also good to get you started if you’re thinking about becoming a consignor. Remember, busier longer sales might give your items more shoppers, but smaller sales give you less competition.

 

While not strictly a consignment sale, you can save big on children’s clothes, sports gear, books and much more at the 81st Annual Ladies Board Rummage Sale at Morven Park, Saturday & Sunday, October 19-20th, 2019.

 

How I Make Extra Money with the ibotta app


I really like the ibotta app as a tool for getting back a little extra cash from my shopping trips. The main reason I like it is because it is easy to use and I really have made some actual money using it.

How ibotta works:

01

Find Offers

Before shopping, check what offers are available where you are going. Most of the large grocery chains in our area are included. (Sorry, Aldi lovers. You can’t make extra money with ibotta app when you shop at Aldi.) There are lots of specialty stores and even some restaurants, too. ibotta offers generic item rebates, too.

02

Go Shopping

Buy the products you’ve selected. Don’t forget to use your store card and take your receipt.

03

Redeem Your Offers

Take a photo of your receipt. It’s easy with ibotta. You may also need to scan the bar code on the matching item. I love the distinct “BEEP” my phone makes when I’ve scanned the correct item.

04

Get Cash

Once you’ve earned a minimum of $20, you can choose how you want your payout. PayPal is one easy way to get your money.

As of publishing this blog post, I’ve made $440.79 buying things that were already on my shopping list.

Here’s what I want you to do . . .

  1. Download the ibotta app to your smart phone.

  2. Open an account. Attach store cards for stores that use them, like Food Lion.

  3. Earn your first rebate easy by entering my referral code TRJGMRJ and redeeming at least one rebate.

9/11 Motorcycles Ride Through Leesburg

America’s 9/11 Foundation annual commemorative motorcycle ride will come through downtown Leesburg on Friday, August 16, 2019.  The ride, which will begin in Somerset, PA, and stop at the Pentagon before ending at the World Trade Center site, honors the memory of the heroes, volunteers and victims who lost their lives in the attacks on September 11, 2001.

The parade of motorcycles is expected to enter Leesburg heading south on Business Route 15 around 1:15 p.m. and will travel down King Street through the historic downtown The motorcycles will proceed from South King Street to the Route 7/15 Bypass and onto the Dulles Greenway. 

The time the riders will enter Leesburg is approximate, based on traffic, road construction, and weather. King Street will be closed to traffic as the motorcycles pass through town. All King Street intersections will be closed to east-west pedestrian and vehicular cross traffic. The road closures are expected to last 30 to 45 minutes until the motorcycles are clear of town.

Where to Park:

Anyone wishing to come downtown, watch, and cheer on the riders as they pass through Leesburg are encouraged to arrive no later than 1:00 p.m. Parking will be available in several areas around downtown, including the Town Hall Parking Garage, the Church Street Parking Lot, and the Liberty Street Parking Lot. Spectators are asked not to hand anything to the motorcycle riders or passengers, for safety reasons.
