Today's topic is something I am passionate about and that is thrifting. I love a good thrift store and if you don't, you are missing out. Today, I plan to give you some of my favorite tips to make the most of your thrifting experience. I also may convince you along the way that thrifting is the best way to add character and personalization to your home.
I haven't always been a thrifter. I think it's something that has grown on me the more I've done it. I also have the advantage of working from home which affords me the luxury of time. Thrifting does take time. You have to be committed to the process and understanding that sometimes you'll have a winner day and sometimes you just won't.
I think the biggest desire I have in thrifting is to make my home unique. Where there is nothing wrong with home decor items purchased at stores, I have found over time that the pieces I use over and over again in my vignettes, mantel displays, and decorating have been one of a kind finds. Not only do these items tend to have a story whether its something you know about the age or make of the item but they are something you won't see when you visit your friend or neighbors house.
Another good reason to thrift is to save money. Thrifting is an economical option to getting the look of your dream home without breaking the bank. It's much easier to get a high end look for a fraction of the cost if you are willing to get a little dirty!
Lastly, thrifting is not only good for the environment, but many stores are run by organizations that help people. I can save a treasure that would be thrown in the trash and financially help someone who needs it.
What do you think? Are you convinced that thrifting may be in your future?
