I purchased a Groupon a while back to a local thrift/consignment store. I plan on visiting in a few weeks to see what kind of deals I can find. Until then, I continue to hit the Clearance racks. My theory is why thrifty when I can get brand-new clearance items cheaper than a thrift or consignment price?
The dress above was just $4. The running pants for our oldest son was around $3. The tank tops (for me) were just $2. The long-sleeve dri-fit shirts for the boys were only $6. I know I would NEVER find the clothes for our boys at a thrift store in our area and in like-new condition. And, buying them on clearance just makes more sense for me (and our budget).
I do think I could probably find a good deal on more items for me, and our home. When I go out, I plan to follow Bridgett's tips on thrifting to get a few good buys. I have seen so many cute things she purchased when thrifting and I'm amazed! Good thing she's coming with me when I go shopping! Until then, you will find me planted in the Clearance section at Target or Kohl's!
Have you had more success with shopping Clearance versus Thrifting?
Any opinions either way?
