“One man’s rubbish may be another’s treasure'”- Popular Tales of the West Highlands
Most of the time I am to busy cooking, working, and cleaning up after a screaming toddler to go to a nice store and spend a pretty penny on some home wares. Usually I can gather what I need from being open minded over positive manifestor, but sometimes a little trip to pop some tags always turns up a #thriftwin.
Here are a few sure fire ways to find deals if your looking to gather some amazing thrifted goods.
- Check out Estate Sales and Antique Stores for Furniture, Dishes, Curtains, etc
- Friday and Saturday are the BEST for good deals if your hitting up garage/yard sales. Great for Kids toys, mystery finds, clothes, small tables, lamps, etc
- Check Free Stuff On Your Local Craigslist. I have gotten Printers, Landscaping materials, firewood, tables, plus odd and ends.
- When you travel, set time out to thrift with your friends. Try out the local thrift stores BEFORE going to Goodwill, they tend to be a bit more pricey in the thrift market. Not only is it a great bonding experience somebody always finds the dopest shit. We all have that story.
- Check Ross! Then TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and Home Goods.Ross is going to have SOME things for reasonable prices, like kitchen utensils, dishes, kids shoes, and holiday wears. I say, “I got this at Ross.” at least once a day.
