Thrift Finds August 25th

We went two times to the Dayton Goodwill, the last time being the 25 of August. I wanted to share 2 items I found on these trips. The first are a pair of Converse for my 10 year old son. They are in amazing shape and were 5.99. I picked them up because of the condition and that they are the size Keaton is wearing right now. Not to mention Batman!
Next is a Cynthia Rowley purse in my favorite color. The color is what caught my eye first in the thick group of pocketbooks. I liked it's overall look and figured it was worth picking up for it's price of 5.99. I'm definitely going to be wearing it in fall and winter.

 If anyone has a thrifting board, post your link in a comment.  I'd love to follow!

New Year Thrifting musings part 1

Happy 2014! 
This year will be what I consider my third full time year of thrifting.  Full time being thrifting 2 or 3 times a week year round.  Almost all my clothing, books, childrens toys, childrens clothing and home decor are found at our South East Tennessee Goodwills.

Years ago when we lived in NY and my eldest children were toddlers, I would thrift just as often at a Savers and a Salvation Army location.  This was mostly for ebay reselling and to outfit the kids in Gymboree and other great resellable brands.  I rarely bought for myself.  I could have, but was between sizes so often with pregnancy.

It wasn't until my last pregnancy in 2011 that I started turning to thrift with regularity.  I do still pick up items to hold for resell but my focus is more on now what we need and will use
