Today's topic is what's going on inside my crazy OCD head! It's something that I enjoy and I feel like I can save money with.
I started thrifting my sophomore year of high school and I had no idea what it would mean for my life. I would check the local thrift stores back home usually once a week and that was that. It was just something fun that I could do to pass the time before work.
Then, through high school and college it was something that was SOOO much fun for me. I bought lots of neat things that I would take home and decorate with or wear and people would always comment on what I had. I would be so proud when I had only paid $1.00 or .50 cents for something.
Now, it's something fun for me to do to de-stress. Hence the above picture.
I remember taking a WinterSession class @ Ole Miss last year and I wrote a paper about thrift shopping. My teacher loved it and wanted me to send a copy to a certain department to put on their website about recycling. I just couldn't bring myself to do it but I do feel that it is a great way to re-use things and not spend as much money in the process.
Just a few of my purchases, over many years.
