do you buy cloths at thrift stores?

I never have, but as i need cloths more and more- and have no money- I have been thinking about it. Can you find anything good to wear at a thrift store. I don't even have enough for ross or other outlets right now.

  • I buy 80% of all our clothes, household goods and decor at goodwill. I think it depends on the goodwill in your location. Mine is awesome and gets donations from department stores.

  • I don't. I wore that when I was a kid and hand me downs from my brother and sister. I'm done with that.

  • Absolutely! But lately, I have found better prices at JC Penney and Kohls on clothes on clearance. Lots of our household decorations are from goodwill. I don't shop at the children's consignment store in our area because they are over priced. Try JCP and Kohls!

  • I have bought clothes at thrift stores in the past and at ross and at resale shops. You can find decent stuff at thrift stores and at goodwill if you look.... and there is nothing wrong with it. And hey, there is nothing wrong with just going to check it out and if you don't find anything, oh well, at least you looked, right?

  • I love thrift stores. You can run into some really awesome new or almost new stuff. Just might have to do a little digging to find the real treasures!
