    I always try and go to the thrift store before I go to the mall. Stores such as Plato’s closet always have great deals!

    We have our own hierarchy. We start at the cheap thrift stores, then hit the more expensive ones like goodwill, then on to consignment, then Walmart/Target, off-price stores (Marshalls, TJMaxx, Ross), non-mall department stores, smaller priced mall shops, then at last the mall department stores.

    Unless we are in a huge rush for something, we usually don’t, make it past Target.

    In my area we have Goodwill Outlet stores that you pay by the pound.
    Most of the clothes and items have never been in one of their retail stores. You have to “dig” through the carts to find the diamonds, but they are there! I have found beautiful high end outfits. Before I started working full time I would go to the outlet store, buy beautiful clothes, take them home and wash, iron and re sell at 2 stores in my town. One year I made over $3,000. It is very addicting.

    I think my wardrobe is 50/50 2nd hand/new and alguthoh I am not the most stylish person on the planet I would say most people wouldn’t think my clothes scream thrifted! I tend to buy high quality items second hand, clothes I wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford, and don’t buy just because something is in fashion, I just stick with what suits me in classic cuts. The only problem with this approach is that my clothes are sometimes a bit old for me…!! Maybe I should be a bit more adventurous!
