Nifty and Thrifty
I have a confession to make…I love shopping at the thrift store. I was there on MLK day and they had a 50% off sale on EVERYTHING. I shopped like crazy! They have cute items in good condition. Why should I have to spend a fortune when I can get name brand clothes at 90% off the retail price. I don’t care that it has been used, I just run it through the washer or have it dry-cleaned. They have incredibly good deals on books and videos (for adults and kids), toys, bags, etc. I introduced my mom to the store a few months ago and she wants to go back when she comes to visit. I will definitely accompany her on that trip! Aside from thrift stores, I love freecycling. What’s better than getting something I want for free. I’ve received so many clothes, toys, movies, and other items I wanted that way. Recently, I got a webcam through Freecycle and it’s been helpful for Skype. :) In this economy, I’m not ashamed to say that I am saving a fortune and still making myself, my husband and my kids very happy.
