This last week I had an interesting conversation with a close friend.
“Does shopping at a thrift store REALLY save you any money?”
True, it is hard not to walk out of a thrift store with SOMETHING since everything is so cheap!
I decided to bump the blog up a notch and start breaking down what an item cost @ the Goodwill in relation to the costs at a different retail establishment. I’ve also started a tally on my Goodwill purchases this year so I can show overall value saved (or spent?) during this challenge.
I’ve just started messing around with the format of the spreadsheet… but it could (and probably will) change a bit over the course of this year.
I’m interested in YOUR OBSERVATIONS, COMMENTS on this subject thrift-public!
Do YOU think that shopping at the thrift store saves you money? $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
