If you follow moi on Instagram yesterday, you would have seen me post on the old Instagram of moi in some clothes from a “thrift shop” More namely ‘Save the Children’. I am surrounded by “thrift” shoppers and they always get these amazing things and deals. I don’t know why I haven’t gone into them more often! There’s a real nice one about a five minute walk from one of the places that I work at.
What I really love about Thrift/Charity shops is that the money is going to a different charity. Depending on where you shop obviously, some are for people, some are for your own countries, some help other countries, some help animals.
While I was waiting for a regular prescription, I decided to pop over to our local charity shop, and got a whole outfit for less then $10! I actually popped into see if they had a jar that I could have played with to make a “poison” bottle for my Wednesday Addams Halloween outfit.
Its been making me think though, since I went. What if I go to the more upmarket ones, I could probably find good gifts for Christmas? Even the little one near me had good enough stuff that I found a whole outfit, what if I took the time to actually look. I think of the stuff I have given to Charity for one reason or another, there’s something good stuff out there.
Who else is a “thrifty” shopper?
