This is How I Do It: Shopping on a Budget
I love a good find as much as the next person. I love taking something that someone no longer wants and giving it purpose again. And I love doing it for next-to-nothing.
Which is why I do most of my wardrobe shopping at the Goodwill Outlet aka The Bins.
It’s taken a bit of getting used to. You never know what you’ll find. Broken mugs, mysterious smells, dirty socks. I wear gloves, the girls aren’t allowed to touch anything and you have to get into a zone to look through all that mess.
But I’ve also found all of my favorite jeans, unique shoes, a few vintage purses and brand name tops here. As I scroll through my blog and look at photos, nearly every item I have on was found at the Bins.
You can’t beat $0.89/lb.
As my brother-in-law likes to point out, “When it comes to fashion, you either have money or you have time.”
