Guess what? It’s a new blog series; In What I Thrifted This Month I will be showing you… drum roll, please… What I thrifted this month! Or, in this case last month, since today is May 1st. First post for a new series and I have already failed. Bear wtih me, though.
Thrifting is not only necessary for me, I cannot begin to estimate how much money I have saved over the years by buying discounted clothing, it has now become a bit of a game. It is my form of hunting. Can I find the latest trend? Can I find those perfect pair of boots I have been lusting over, but cannot currently afford? Can I even make a little extra cash selling my own clothes? The answer is yes. I can and you can too. There is no reason why you shouldn’t try thrifting at least once. If you’re not into the idea of wearing someone else’s clothing, you can also score all types of goodies for your home at stores like Goodwill and the Salvation Army, or even your local flea market. Don’t even get me started on flea markets. My gushing over flea markets requires a whole other post.
Why would you let the perfect dress, or shoes that were made for you, but just had to go through another person first to get to you, sit in such close (and by God, affordable) proximately and be stolen by someone else? Remember my New Year’s Eve dress? Thrifted. My favorite boots? Thrifted. The blouse from Monday’s post? Thrifted. I could go on and on, but I will let the photos, and my future outfit posts, since it is a rarity when I am not wearing a thrifted piece, speak for themselves.
April brought me scores from Goodwill, Thrift Town, The Salvation Army, Freestyle Clothing Exchange, Buffalo Exchange, and, of course, Crossroads. I found so many brightly colored and patterned pieces for Spring.
*When I “thrift”, it includes consignment stores like Crossroads, Freestyle Clothing Exchange, and Buffalo Exchange, as well as what people consider the “real” thrift stores, like Goodwill and Thrift Town*
I was extremely lucky with shoes this month. I am always looking for shoes, especially boots, when thrifting. I love that they come worn in and scuffed up.
April Thrift Finds
- Goodwill: Three dresses, one blouse, two pairs of shoes
- Thrift Town: One pair of shoes
- Salvation Army: One paid of shoes
- Freestyle Clothing Exchange: One dress, one top
- Crossroads: Two dresses, three blouses, one pair of jeans
- Buffalo Exchange: One romper
Writing it out makes it seem like I have a problem. Actually, I fully admit that I do have a thrifting problem. A shopping problem in general, actually. Thank God for thrifting, or else I would also have a debt problem.
