Visit Your Local Thrift Store For Mud Run Clothing
Members Were Sparked
I am getting ready to do my first Mud Run, a type of race that is becoming more popular. I have been going to my local thrift store to search out shoes and clothing. Since I know that the items will be tossed once the race is over I am not feeling guilty about buying 'special' clothing and I am supporting a local business (which also supports our local food pantry). I found a pair of Nike's for 50 cents!

I buy all of the clothes I can at the thrift store. I just had a baby, so I buy my jeans at the thrift store for 6 dollars. I also breastfeed, so I buy shirts used as well. I have found all of the baby clothes there, and last week found six baby outfits for 15 dollars. With three kids and a limited budget, the thrift store has been a true lifesaver.
It takes energy to go through all those unused items in your home...which means while you are doing it you are burning calories!...take the items and either have a garage sale or donate them...(included are some suggestions)....which ever you choose, your home will look better and so will you!!:)
