Not every Thrifty Thursday will literally be about thrift store shopping, but today it is! 

Memorial Day I got some great deals and supported a wonderful organization by shopping at the Salvation Army Thrift Store. 

There was 50% off all clothes at Salvation Army!  (They also have a big sale on the 4th of July!) 

Don’t knock it till you try it people! 

My haul included: 2 men's dress shirts, 2 skirts, 2 woman's blazers, 3 sweaters, 4 blouses, 1 romper, 1 bracelet

I am proud to tell you that

I got 15 items for $26! 

This stuff is quality too, not junk!

So what's the trick?


Go to a good location. 

Sometimes learning thrift stores takes some time. 

On Memorial Day we were in the Lake Orion area and they had some amazing Salvation Army’s. 

Know what style / what colors you are looking for. 

Be you, don’t feel the need to go, “vintage,” if that’s not you. 

Shop with a budget! 

I know we are thrifting, but if you spend a dollar on something you will never use, that is a wasted dollar. Be smart about it.

Where do you like to thrift?
