I have a new hobby and it’s driving me to distraction. It’s affordable, fun and trending. When I recently lost 100 pounds, my closets were bare. I could not afford to buy new clothes to support the weight loss, so I had empty hangers from one end of the closet to the other. But then I began THRIFTING. Now my closets are overstuffed with brand name shoes, purses and a stunning new wardrobe courtesy of Goodwill, Plato’s Closet,
St. Vincent De Paul, Salvation Army
and Value World. (All unconventional shopping experiences in their own right.) I
love the fact you won’t see my new outfits coming and going on someone else.
It’s a unique closet chosen especially for me featuring the things I like, that
are akin to being, one of a kind, because they’re vintage. I love it. Everything was purchased at bargain
basement prices. Shoes for $2. Purses for $3. Shirts, pants for $1.99. And
blazers for $4. The thrill of getting something for next to nothing is exciting,
you have to admit. But this goes beyond that, it helps those less fortunate.
People who are disabled and poorer than me. Recycling clothes is an admirable endeavor
and I’m on the front lines doing my part to help. What about you? Have you ever
thrifted? If your answer is no, why not?

It pays to know how to stretch a dollar.
