Us fellow thrifters had a discussion over on the Facebook page the other day about when we find time to thrift. Some people sneak into the thrifts on their commute home and some stop in if they have a few minutes to spare before picking up the kiddos at work.
For myself, I found that I had about 10 minutes to spare yesterday between a run to the bank and a Dermatology appointment. Hmmm? What's a girl to do with that extra time?
I ran into a Goodwill thrift that was along my route and breezed through shoes, purses, housewares, and then very quickly through my size section of tops. This cute little number was poking out of the rack:
A Limited tunic top in an awesome pattern! I rushed to go try it on and there were no fitting rooms open, ack! Oh well, I found a mirror and whipped it on over my Lite Brite t-shirt. Stunning! It was blousy in all the right areas and would cover my tush if I chose to wear it with leggings. $3.59, sold!
So, when do you find a few extra minutes to sneak away and thrift?
nice! i usually plan my thrifting adventures...but, my best sneak off and thrift adventure was right before a job interview...was very nervous...but i didn't have my kids with me and i did have about 20 minutes to waste...arrived at GW which was about 2 minutes from my interview location...found a beautiful pyrex casserole with lid! made me feel like a million bucks for my interview.ReplyDelete
I too grab minutes to thrift where I can, during lunch hour errands, in between appointments and early on Saturday morning before the teenagers roll out of bed!ReplyDelete
Oh I wish I lived close enough to a Goodwill to sneak away every so often! Mine are way too far away to just stop in. :(ReplyDelete
On my day off I have to go grocery shopping. It doesn't hurt that I can make a big loop of it and hit 4 or 5 thrift stores too. It's great that I get to do this when my husband is working, so he doesn't need to know that it takes me four hours to get the groceries.ReplyDelete
