 Are you?

Will you purchase clothing from yard sales? Thrift stores? Consignment stores?  Do you get them from Ebay, FreeCycle or Craigslist?

 

National Thriftshop Day

When : Always August 17th

National Thriftshop Day is a day for a real bargain.

"Thriftshops" is an old term for stores that sell items deeply discounted merchandise. It's not always the highest quality, but the price is right. You know these stores better today as discount department stores and dollar stores.

Watch for sales and specials today at Thriftshops in celebration of National Thriftshop Day. If you are a storeowner, create a sale around this special day, and watch your August sales sizzle!

Yep. I almost never pay full price for clothes and shoes. I buy whatever I can second hand.

I absolutely will get clothes second-hand. I don't usually go out regularly to shop for stuff at yard sales or anything, but have, and will again.

I use freecycle from time to time and I don't mind going to consignment sotres as long as they don't price used items as much as new items.

I do all of the above.  And I have no shame in saving a bunch of money doing so. It is also better for the planet.

I shop consignment as much as possible for the kids clothes. I try to get stuff on sale. I don't think I qualify as thrifty, though.
