hrifting is not always done out of necessity. In fact, I bet many of your friends are thrifters and you don’t even know it! I went through most of my whole adult life completely clueless that these stores even existed. I wonder now how I could have even survived shopping retail sales. I cringe even thinking about it! The prices were still 100% more of than the thrifted version. I remember the day my husband paid $50 for two “common brand” outfits for my then one-year old daughter, Amani. I purchased over 10 of the same brand, in gently used condition for $2.50 each – some still had the tags! Why would we ever again go to that store? The fact is, no matter what your income, every little thing adds up!
