Y’all, this Plenty by Tracy Reese dress was a dollar. $1.The blazer? $2. They retail $250 together, but cost me $3. Yep. Thrifting is one of my most favorite hobbies, and while I do also shop at big box retailers, I find thrifting to be the most rewarding. Never tried? Want to do more of it? Check out my list below!
Reasons why I thrift:
1) It’s good for the environment! Clothes in a landfills is a real problem across the world.
2) It gives back! A lot of thrift stores benefit local communities, give jobs to people in the community, and often recycle clothes they don’t sell.
3) It’s affordable! $1 dress above. Enough said.
4) Hunting for deals is a joy in (my) life! Finding a gem while thrifting is just a happy thing.
Thrifting doesn’t make your heart sing? No problem! Check out this handy dandy chart to see what you can do with your old clothes.
