My daughter and I went thrifting last night at Goodwill. I came home with an entire outfit and a pack of gum for a total of $32 (that includes tax). The outfit included a pair of Ugg-style boots, a pair of Hue jeggings, a Paper + Tee plaid shirt and a below-the-tush Liz Claiborne warm/thicker cardigan. All in great condition with hardly any wear. I’m pretty sure the cardigan alone (or the boots) would have cost at least $32 new.
I actually paid a little more than I normally would at a thrift store. I can get pretty tight when shopping used, especially donated used, but I just got my income tax refund so loosened up a bit, lol. A lot of people are complaining that Goodwill’s prices are getting outrageous and I can see their point, but we can still save money, especially if we shop the tag sales. The cardigan I bought last night was originally priced at $9.99 but it had an orange tag so I got it for 50% off. Red tags were only .99 cents. I unfortunately didn’t find anything I wanted with a red tag.
I really enjoy the variety in thrift store. I see so many unusual things, sometimes finding treasures. Two times I bought a pair of designer boots that I paid less than $10 for and sold them on eBay for $75 and $90.
Do you like thrifting? If so, what do you thrift for? Do you save a lot of money by thrifting? What’s the most unusual thing you’ve found at a thrift store? Would love to hear your thrift adventures and comments! Please comment below.
