using thrift stores to buy things
Salvation Army thrift stores are awesome
This hub is designed to educate people that you can find quality name brand items both new and used at thrift stores.
The Salvation Army have thrift stores all over the USA and they stock items both brand new and used that are donated from people or retails stores etc, you can do a google search and find out where the nearest store is to you.
I love saving money and to be honest I never thought about shopping at a thrift store until I tried going to one and now that is where I do the majority of my shopping, and it is simply because they have the same things that you would buy from a retail store for literally pennies on the dollar.
If the thought of shopping at a thrift store repulses you, like it used to me, just look at it this way, many of the thrift stores items are brand new - name brand clothes etc. that are donated to the store and are no different than buying them from the store retail.
Another thing is for example, right now at the thrift store they have around 30 nice coats, some used and some brand new priced anywhere from 2 dollars to 10 dollars, my point is this, if you can buy a nice new coat now in the summertime for 2 dollars DO IT, save that money, because when winter gets here, those same coats will be 15 to 30 dollars.
Thrift stores have a huge variety of merchandise, they literally have everything a retail store has except groceries.
They have clothes, books, furniture,bed & bath,movies,toys,shoes,jewelry,heath & beauty aids
dishes, everything you can imagine and more.
I never thought I would say it but I am a bargain shopper and I am proud of it.
I hope this hub helps you find a deal ;0)
