Consignment Shopping Tips

Consignment Shopping Tips - We are heading into the consignment shopping season. Prepare yourself to find tremendous bargains with IKC’s top consignment shopping tips.

First, you want to be prepared. You will need to take some time to do a little bit of prep work. Take a look at what you have for the next few months for each child. Then make a list of what you might need. You can even trace your kid’s feet on a piece of cardboard and take it with you to the sale.

Many times people don’t think about gifts they might need throughout the year. At the IKC sale, we get plenty of brand new items. So, get some birthday and Christmas gifts crossed off your list.

Next, you will want to dress for shopping. Make sure you wear comfy clothes and shoes. You should plan on spending a couple hours at the sale. It’s not the sort of thing you run in and out of. If you don’t have to carry your purse, don’t. Put your cash or credit card and driver’s license in your pocket. Hands free is the way to go.

Consignment sales are so fun to go to with girlfriends. So, if at all possible, leave your kids at home. Come find bargains and save your family a ton of money. If you have properly assessed your needs, you won’t need your kids there to check sizes. If you do need to bring them, make sure you check the sale’s website to see if there are times when kids and/or strollers are not allowed.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Obviously, we’ll have more on this story throughout the day and well into the night…

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.

100-calorie Packs Diet

100-calorie Packs Diet - Did you know recent studies show chronic dieters tend to consume more calories when foods and packages are smaller? Consumer behavior was observed in the study regarding "mini-packs," 100-calorie food packages that are marketed to help people control calorie intake.

The study revealed that one group that over-consumes the mini-packs is chronic dieters - individuals making a conscious effort in trying to manage their weight and food intake.

This shows that the distorted perception of small packages may actually undermine dieters' attempts to limit calories.

Consider this: Consumers perceive the mini-packs to be a generous portion of food - numerous small food morsels in each pack and multiple mini-packs in each box - while on the other hand, consumers perceive the mini-packs to be diet food. For chronic dieters, this perceptual dilemma causes a tendency to overeat, due to their emotion-laden relationship with food.

In a series of focus group studi…
