ALEXANDRIA, Va. (WUSA9) -- This weekend is Virginia's tax free holiday.

One way to get more bang for your buck is to shop consignment.

Megan Podolsky from 529 Kids Consign in Old Town Alexandria joined us on Wednesday with some secrets on how to shift through what's actually worth your money.

"You can save easily 50% to 60% off department store prices and this is on great quality brands," said Podolsky.

A few child models showed off the clothing available at a cheaper price. Note: You want to make sure the clothes meet your child's school's dress code.

529 Kids Consign is alsodoing a big back to school event on August 23 where everything you need for your children's wardrobe from umbrellas to backpacks to hair bows to their attire.
