I`ve found this store where you could buy branded clothes for several dollars. The only problem is that they have been worn by somebody else before. Today I bought 3 dresses for 20 bucks, if new I`d have to pay more than 500. I feel that I`m already obssessed by the second hand mania. Tomorrow I`m going again. And I will not confess to anyone where I do my shopping. Do you find it nasty?

I get a lot of clothes from my sister. I know she's clean so it doesn't gross me out.

We do 80% of our shopping at thrift stores. We will buy clearanced out items occasionally.

I only buy 1 new pair of jeans for myself and I will wear them until I need new ones. As long as I'm dressed and they look nice I don't get all crazy about brands.

I buy most of my clothes from thrift stores and I don't feel one bit sorry for it. I clean everything I buy before I wear it, so I'm not worried.

No but my kids do.  Second hand stores just don't have my style and no one gives me hand me downs.

Not if you find a good thrift store. I know several that sell very lightly used clothing practically new and they wash everything before hand you will rarely find anything wrong with them.

I also trade clothes with several family members as well. my little sister, my SIL, even my aunt

No, lol. Sometimes I buy second hand, other times I don't. I dont usually go in the stores unless I have something to sell, but of something catches my eye for my children or I, I will buy it. Not shoes though or personal items like bathing suits.

Yep.  I don't consider myself " too good for 2nd hand clothes " I find it pretty awesome considering the money you can be saving.  I buy mostly for the kids because I can never find anything for myself, however.

i have a lot of hand me down clothes...i didn't buy them, they were given to me.  the main reason i wear them is because i just poot around the house all day, so wearing pink & orange plaid shorts isn't a big deal (yes, someone really gave me a pair of pink & orange plaid shorts!!).  if i have to go somewhere, i will wear clothes that i bought new.

I don't personally, but I don't think it is nasty for others to wear them. If I did buy second hand or when I had maternity clothes handed down to me I washed them first.
