Thrifting 101 {Cont.}

April 28, 2011

Guys Thrifting 101 was awesome, I am super glad it helped some of you guys out! I had some fabulous readers comment about some additional tips that I failed to mention, and thought I would pass them on to you guys!

Laura Lynn said: I would also add to take advantage of the thrift shop's sales - like the Sal Val's 50% off day and Goodwill's frequent shopper card. (The Goodwill even has a return policy.) And then just have FUN!

{Sooo sad that we have hardly any Goodwill's or Salvation Army's by me :(. But I do know that the store: Thrifttown by brickyard has sales ALL the time, and they offer coupons!!}
Sarah said: Another tip I have is to wear comfy clothes...for some reason it makes a huge difference for me. 

{Really I think this applies to life in general but that's just me ;). Being comfy is always a plus when your are digging for thrifted treasure!!}

Melissa said: Another thrifty tip is go outside of your "designated area". Look in boys, little girls, mens. You can usually find a gem may fit or that's miscategorized! 

{Ok I am just going to flat out say it: Melissa is my thrifting icon, LOVE her!! I have never thought of this before, I think it's totally genius! Thx girl!} 

Thanks so much for all your help guys! Have anymore tips that you think we have missed let me know. Good luck friends, and Happy Thrifting! Love, love.

ps: Have you been dying to ask me a question(s)?? Go HERE and ask away friends!

pps: You should for sure enter ;):


  1. also, at the Savers in Orem, they used to give you 20% off when you donated items. and they had a military discount as well. i loved that Savers.:(

  2. I think another tip would be to try and visit goodwills and thrift stores in posh neighborhoods. you're more likely to find high end treasures in these areas.

    Love all these tips by the way!

  3. Thanks for sharing all your thirfting advice. I've never been a big thrifter but I am so inspired to try it out.

  4. yes, i always look in little boys clothes! sometimes they have the cutest tees!

    Btw: my blog has been temporarily de activated by blogger bc it was mistaken as a spammer! Ugh, I know, but the link below leads to my temporary blog at steffysprosandcons.COM

  5. how in the heck did i miss the thrifting 101 post?!?! i live for thrifting!!! going back over my blog roll.

  6. Morgan, thanks for your kind words & the shout out!! I love the comfy clothes idea. If you're uncomfortable, there's no sense in doing anything, let alone digging for hidden treasures.

  7. Hey, your tips were great! And the extra ones are so right. They are Charity shops in the UK and they are no where near as good as the US ones. But I love to Charity Shop, it's great fun! I would also say to not always shop in the same area. Go to a more affluent area as their charity shops stock higher end goods but still at a good price.
