It probably comes as no surprise when I say that I am a thrifty gal. I hate paying full price for anything, especially when 9 times out of 10 you can find that same item for a discounted price if you were to dig around. This applies to clothing, food, electronics, appliances, vehicles, and more. Just about everything, in my opinion. While your second option may not be an exact duplicate of what you initially wanted, I tend to think of it as the better one because not only were you patient in your search for it, but you also paid less for it. To me, that’s what shopping is all about.
On this particular day, Geoffrey and I went to three different stores for our deals. We started out at JYSK where we bought many items that were on sale, then to the local Salvation Army, and finally to Value Village. I came away with some amazing purchases from the later two places, including a silver and antler serving tray for $2.00, a large woven and framed racoon picture for $3.00, and a vintage dress for $7.00. These were documented on my Instagram, so if you would like to see what they look like, you can follow me here. The only thing that would have completed my thrift store outing would have been a trip to the dollar store. However, there’s always the next time.
