My name is Suzanne, and I am a thriftoholic.
A couple weeks ago I made the "this seems like a good & unrealistic idea" decision to go the remainder of 2012 with only shopping for clothing, minus pants & shoes, from Goodwill/thrift stores. You know what, for kicks and giggles let's throw in panties (that's for you Reba) and unmentionables into the exclusion mix.
I can honestly say that I'd be ok if I went the rest of the year without purchasing underwear from Goodwill.
I felt rather proud of myself after proclaiming this to my twitter friends. Plus it means I can go shopping TONS more. Because spending $20 on 5 things is like not spending any money at all. Even if you spend that $20 2-3 days a week.
Free expense... just like gas and groceries.
So stay tuned friend/s, 2012 just got a little more exciting. Bargin hunting for clothes is great, especially when I work in an area where people buy and donate nice clothes... all the time.
During one of the many trips to my favorite thrift store (remember, free expense) I found this little number. I made the silly mistake of passing on her during my first visit but after good friends reminded me how foolish I was, I returned and brought her home.
Or something like this:
Be sure to check back in 4-6 months for an update on the project.
