Being the last of three daughters, I was used to hand-me downs. Brenda passed them to Janet who forwarded them to me after a few detours to some girl cousins. I guess that's why getting secondhand is no big deal to me. Even my prom dresses were someone else's first!
I love to get quality things at bargain prices. So when you don't find me at home or in my office, you might locate me in one of the consignment stores or thrift shops in my area where I always find extra clothes and such for my grandkids at ridiculously inexpensive prices.

I love thift shopping. I have the luxury of having a job that teaches money management. One of the things I stress is looking for avenues to save money, this includes thrift shops. I shop all year round at our local thrift shops, especially for books. I can pick up books for 69 cents that I can keep or write in. Often we swap books between friends, sometimes we don't get all of the series so I have to shop for it at my local thrift store.
With so many people cleaning their closets out now, it's a great place to look for new clothes or just new pieces to mix or match with my current wardrobe. I don't purchase shoes, socks or under garments from a thrift store, but otherwise, everything is fair game!
