Thrifty Thursday Tip!



Thrifty Thursday is here already!  Today is not a find but a tip- When in doubt, put it in your cart!

An item at a thrift store is typically a rare find and you probably will not find it another day or even within 30 minutes of seeing it.

I add everything I lull over to my cart and then before purchasing, I go through each item and make my decision to buy or not to buy.

I learned the HARD way.  Sigh, I spotted a beautiful condition vintage red wagon...  decided to think about it and walked away.  When I went back ten minutes later- it was gone and in someone else's cart!  
No wagon for Kalia :( and an important lesson for me!

Do you have any regret stories?

  1. I refer to this as the Moscow Rule of Shopping. Pretend you are in a foreign country and if you don't put it in your basket right now you will never be back to get it. Shopping is so brutal.Lost out on a Lanvin handbag that way.

  2. I love this! You're so right :)
    At first I was confused until I read the part about this taking place in a thrift shop.

    Thank you for popping by from SITS :)

  3. It's not exactly the same thing, but just today I has to pass up a dresser at a tag sale that was free because it wouldn't fit in the car. It was in pretty bad shape but I had a vision. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
