One of my favorite places to shop are the local thrift stores. I was excited when I read in the paper that a new Salvation Army Family Thrift Store just opened at 8310 East Washington Street. I decided to go over and check it out yesterday.
I found that the store was packed with merchandise and that the clothing was well priced. I was able to get all the items pictures below for only $12.
One of the keys to reducing your family's clothing bill is to look for items BEFORE you need them. If you wait until you need the item then you might have to pay full price.
I do not think my son's winter items will fit next year - so I went ahead and got him the next sized coat and snow pants. The blue coat is a very nice Land's End coat that I paid only $3.50 for the yellow coat was only $1.50. It is more worn than the other but will make an excellent play coat. The Snow pants were only $1.75
This tie is 100% silk and looks like it was never used. This was only$1.25.
Our VCR decided to start eating tapes a few weeks ago and so it was time to replace it. I found
one that looked nearly new for only $4. The top was a little dusty - but that was easily fixed. Thankfully it works great!
