Have I mentioned lately how much I love a bargain? No? Well...I LOVE a bargain. So when I discovered Wallet-Friendly Wednesday, I thought this was a great way to see how others are saving money, and to share my own money saving tips as well.
So today, I am going to share with you my recent trip to Plato's Closet! My husband does not understand my love of secondhand shopping...he doesn't understand why I just don't buy new...but this is why:
How much do you think all of this would have cost new? If I had to guess, I'd say over $100...afterall, the shorts and purple top are from American Eagle which is not cheap. And the floral button up on the right...still had tags on- $20! And how much did I pay for all of it? About $28!!! Wow! On top of Plato's Closet's already amazing prices, our local store also offers a 15% military discount on everything but clearance! So, why would I pay over double the price!? That's why secondhand shopping is so wonderful. Yes, in some places you have to search a little harder for the better finds (Plato's Closet only accepts recent styles, good condition clothes so it's pretty easy there), but for the money saved, it's certainly worth it!
I am super excited about our local store's amazing upcoming deal- everything you can fit in a bag from their clearance section will be just $10...I will be there at opening ready to get the deals! My wardrobe is still in desperate need of an overhaul so what better (cheaper) way to do it...lucky me, I am small (small clothes means I can fit more in the bag!) and I am a master at packing...rolling clothes to fit excessive amounts in a smaller bag!! I hope to have a lot to show from that trip soon!!
So, do you love consignment shopping as much as I do? Any great recent deals? Any other great money saving tips to share!? Feel free to join in the fun:
