do you shop at thrift stores?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I went today and got my boys some nice name brand clothes for less than $30. I spent 100$ total (at the buckle & penny's also) and got dh 2 shirts, and a pair of jeans. my oldest 2 pairs of jeans and 3 shirts and my baby a pair of jeans, overalls, sweatpants and a shirt.

I think I got an amazing deal.


eta- my only thrift store buys were a pair of joker brand jeans (with tags) an element shirt (with tags) 2 more longsleeved (old navy) and carters overalls, sweats, and a onsie for baby. It was $23 and some change. 


the rest was brand new but I think it was still a good price for everything.

I sure do :) intact I bought my ds his iron man costume at savers the other day. It was the complete costume including mask for only $10! Yeah I think it did good. Plus it was brand new in a sealed bag.

Sometimes but not often. They never have nice boy clothes. If I had a little girl I definetly would!

I love shopping thrift stores and consignment stores.  I hate spending full price for new stuff and at the thrift stores / consignment stores I can get the good quality stuff that I would never be able to buy brand new.

No. I don't like to hunt for the good deals. I prefer to just go in a store, see what I like and have the right size right there.
