In the month of October, my challenge will be to find $1000. Mondays thru Saturdays in October, I will have ideas to help you find $1000 too. On Sundays, we’ll meet here to catch our breath, and let everyone know how we’re finding our $1000.
Wednesday is my favorite day of week and not because it’s HUMP day–it’s 50% off day at my favorite thrift store.
I have nothing against retail stores. I shop at them regularly, but I love to shop for clothing for myself and my girls at a local thrift store, especially ON WEDNESDAYS.
I’m trying not to bring unnecessary stuff in to our house, but I head to the thrift store at least one Wednesday a month to look for the needs of my family. I regularly find brand name clothing in like new condition at a fraction of the retail price.
As part of the 31 Days to Find $1000, October is a “Needs Only” month, so today’s challenge is to search for your needs, especially clothing and household items, at thrift stores.
Some of my favorite finds:
- Calvin Klein jeans that FIT LIKE A GLOVE. Seriously, they are the most awesome jeans ever. They retail for $40-50, but I paid $2.50!
- Keen shoes for my daughter that retail for $50, but I paid $2.50.
- K Swiss Classic leather sneaker for my other daughter that retail for $40, but I paid $2.50.
- A brand new girls’ winter coat for $3.
Do you shop at thrift stores? Do you have a problem buying used? Let us know in the comments.
