Thrifting

Today the girls and I went to a new thrift store in the area. I am trying to be a super frugal person and so I think I should shop primarily at thrift stores for clothes and other household things. However, in general I don't really like them. They are too much of a treasure hunt for my tastes. Same thing with places like tj maxx. It just seems like more work than it is worth.

Strangely I love antique stores and shows. I am trying to figure out the difference. I think it is the clothing aspect. I like looking at furniture and decorations and what not but not so much clothes or shoes.

Speaking of clothes... There are some things that I think should not be purchased second hand - under garments in general but thongs in particular. This store had a whole aisle of thongs - one side for women the other side for men. The thought of it still gives me the heebie jeebies, I wish I had taken a picture. As my mom would say different strokes for different folks...

Funny that you posted about this because I was just thinking of hitting up the thrift store for baby pj's. I really don't like thrifting, but there are some decent places over by me that I don't mind popping into for a minute. I have really come to like TJMaxx and Marshall's, especially for baby clothes. It took me a while to like it for shopping for myself. I think once I finally figured out what racks were for my taste/size, I really started to enjoy it more. You can't deny the great deals!
