Today I took advantage of my day off and stayed in, watched the Inauguration coverage, and went thrifting. I went to Family Thrift Outlet where everything was 75cents today. I bought about 12 items, all of which came to about $9.50! Yes, just under the budget! *fist pumps*
Here are some of my items:
I needed a few work pants, so I went searching. I found four pairs from brands GAP, The Limited, Issac Mizrahi and another random brand I hadn’t heard of. I was glad to find solid brands at such a low price. The only problem now is that I will have to hem most of the pants due to the fact that I’m short and I wear mostly flats.
I liked the pattern on this shirt.
Something about this shirt screams retro bowling league to me, but I like it!
Found a mini-skirt to go with my bright tights!
My sister has a super comfy movie sweater that I’ve been jealous of. This XL sweater does the trick.
Not pictured are a silk floral skirt, a blue and white trim blazer (for my mom), and a tan blazer (for my sister).
Total price: 12 items for $0.75 = $9 (plus $0.50ish in tax)
A day and money well-spent, wouldn’t you say?
I made a deal with myself and my closet that for every 2 new items I bought, I needed to donate one thing. It looks like I’m going to have to toss out 4 old things. Yikes. I’m going to comb through my closet. I’m sure there’s a pair of daisy dukes crying out for a new home.

One day I’ll learn to thrift like you. One day.
Actually, I’m going thrifting tomorrow! Wish me luck!
Good luck! Patience is the key. The store was randomly assorted and I almost left empty handed. I took a calming breath and went over aisles I’d already been to. The second time around, I found stuff.
