Today I am thankful for thrift stores. Thrift stores have always been fun to look in with so many amazing things to find there. However, since I've been married, and money has been tight, they have also been a wonderful resource for clothing, and other household needs/wants. Howard has been pretty much exclusively dressed in hand-me-downs and thrift store purchases; it is very rare for us to have to purchase something new for him. I also get a lot of my clothes from the thrift store, mostly skirts, tops, and sweaters, as jeans are something for some reason almost never fit me right used. My husband is big and tall, so items for him are harder to come by at the thrift stores, but we still look, and sometimes can find great deals. I have found him a couple of coats, two brand new pairs of shorts with the original tags still on them, and quite a few shirts. I have also purchased frames and books for $0.50 a piece on several occasions, and even a nice lamp once. Shopping at the thrift stores is fun, but it has also saved us a LOT of money over the years, and for that I am truly thankful!
