54: How Consignment Allows Us to Be More Mindful and Sustainable with Mimi Shea


Do you find that you have many items in your home that you no longer use?

This is so common! Many times we purchase things for ourselves or our children that are only worn or used for a small amount of time.

In this episode, I am talking to Mimi Shea about being more mindful and sustainable with our purchases.

Mimi is the owner and creator of Wee-Sale Children’s Consignment Sale, She-Sale Ladies Consignment Sale and the owner of local franchise Caring Transitions of Annapolis.

In Today’s Episode, We Discuss: 

  • The sustainability aspects of consignment
  • How consignment extends the life of an item
  • Why less is often more
  • How often you should go through your items to purge
  • Recommended categories to sort items into
  • Tips for cycling children’s toys
  • Places you can sell your items
  • What you should recycle versus what you can sell

I hope you gained a new perspective on the consumer mindset in this episode with Mimi and got inspired to shop pre-owned and sell your items!
