Thrifty Style

This Sparked Me!

I went thrift store shopping and was amazed by the enormous amount of holiday items out on sale. You should check out the bargains before they get away. This is a great way to find handmade crafts, books (cookbooks), toys, and clothes to keep or give away.

Remember to wear good walking shoes to check out every aisle.

    Bring a set amount of money you plan to spend so you dont over spend picking up just a few items at each sale.

    Yard sales are really good this time of year, since people are needing money so much, they sell LOTS of things. Don't pass up good ones. I use the REVERSE Search on People Finder and get the Phone numbers and call ads so I KNOW what they are selling and what NOT, so I don't waste time driving to sales where they have nothing I really want. I then know where to go first to get items I'm looking for. Saves lots of time and money on gas.
