How To Thrift! Best Thrifting Tips For National Thrifting Day!By The DivaGals | August 17, 2022 | Food Fashion Style
Divas, August 17 is National Thrifting Day! Thrifting or second-hand shopping isn’t just about finding a sweet deal at a thrift store, flea market, garage sale or charitable organization shop. Reusing and repurposing clothing and other items keeps them out of landfills, reduces carbon and chemical pollution caused by production and lowers water consumption.
So how can you make your mark on National Thrift Day? We’ve got some great ideas below!
Hit Your Local Thrift Shop In Person Or Online
If you’re asking yourself, “Where to thrift,” we say start at your local thrift shop! Many towns have second-hand stores where you can start your thrifting journey. And then there are the major charitable organizations like Goodwill (where you can also shop online!) and Salvation Army which offer second-hand and brand-new items at amazing prices. You can also find amazing second-hand items online at sites like Poshmark. Read our article, “How To Thrift Shop Like A Pro” for our best thrifting tips!
