How to Get the Most from Thrift Store Shopping

It isn’t all luck- there’s strategy involved as well.

If you are an avid thrift store shopper, then you probably have a system to how you do things. Perhaps you only go on certain days, you always drive the bigger car there in case you find some great furniture, or maybe you have an order you look through thrift stores in. Since thrift stores usually carry a huge variety of items -from toys to shoes to clothes to teapots to sofas- it can sometimes be overwhelming if you aren’t prepared and this goes double if there are quite a few things you’re looking for. This is why doing some planning beforehand is incredibly helpful.
