Thrift Store Junkie

This Sparked Me!

I LOVE shopping at thrift stores but found that my collection of clothing & other things was growing too big for my house. So now, every time I shop at the thrift store, I donate. For every item I purchase, I donate an item.

    I love this....last year I made a goal to 'give away' 1 item a day for the whole year. I was able to give away 417 items...most of them to a few local thrift stores. I really like to donate to Value Village because they take those items, re-sell them at a great value price and then turn around an donate the profit to local charities....it's an all around great thing!

    That's an excellent idea! I'll have to try that.
