Have you started back to school shopping?

Do you ever go to thrift stores? or rummage sales. I went to thrift stores and got my son three south pole tee shirts, a south pole hoodie, and 3 dress shirts, a vikings shirt, phillys jersey, john deere shirt with the tags still on. I also got my daughter new snowmobile jacket worn very little, and 4 skirts with the tag still on as well as 34 name brand shirts some with tags still on, all aeropostale, billabong, hollister, two arizona at rummage sales, and thrift stores

  • I haven't started yet but my mom has. She told me she has already bought my girls some jeans and is currently at the store right now buying them more!

  • I've never been to a thrift store. I do most of my back to school shopping on tax free weekend which here in NC is the first weekend in August.

  • Not yet, but I did go to a thrift store yesterday that had just gotten a big donation from one of our upscale stores in town. I got 15 pairs of brand new capris with tags still on, for just $22.00.

    Will probably do most of the grandkid's shopping on tax free weekend.
