I love to shop. It is true.
I love window shopping, I love shopping with a purpose and I love shopping simply for no reason at all. Growing up my grandmother use to take me thrift store shopping every summer. I loved the hunt and especially loved getting things for a great deal. When I was living in NYC I hardly ever went to thrift stores. Occasionally if I was out around town and happened to run into one I might have stopped in. But in general I rarely ever found the time to go "thrifting".
I know thrift stores are not for everyone. That is okay. There is nothing wrong with wanting to spend one's money on nice, new things. However, if you can find simple ways to save money and help save the earth, try buying that ice cube tray or that new coffee mug, or that pair or jeans at a place where you can feel good about where your dollar is being spent and your contribution to the environment. Plus I guarantee you will have fun at a thrift store if you just take a moment to look at all the amazing things that people have donated.
Until Next Time. Buy More and Consume Less! (p.s. try thrifting)
