I Spent $50.00 At The Thrift Store And Here’s What Happened

If you were to ask a group of my friends to describe me using the following sentence… “Kaylin loves ______ “, 3 out of 4 people would respond with “thrift stores”. What can I say?! I’m cheap but I like nice things. It’s a horrible combination. However, with thrift stores, I get nice things that people get rid of at half the retail price! Yes. Please. Check. Mate. It still blows my mind that people don’t shop at thrift stores. Yes, there are sketchy ones. Yes, there are some nasty things in them. And yes, I wash my hands thoroughly after being inside of one. BUT! GUYS! The deals! The savings! The thrill of the hunt for something great! I love it all. If you aren’t a thrifter, let’s go together sometime. I’ll change your mind.

So we are in a season of change right now with our family. And by “season of change”, I mean we are having to change our spending habits. A lot. And that’s okay. (Makin’ big moves, y’all.) That’s another post for another day. However, we all needed some new things for summer. We headed to Flagstaff for Memorial Day Weekend and I knew I wanted to hit up the thrift stores. (My happy place.) Savers was having 50% off on Sunday for club card members, so we set out in hopes of scoring! Here’s what we got…
