Better Budgeting: Thrift Store Coupons and Sales

Thrift Store Coupons and Sales

Money Saving Tip of the Month (featured column)
submitted by Susan

Whether you occasionally shop at thrift stores or have never stepped into one, after reading this month's winning tip you will certainly know how to do it right!

*  *  *

Treat the thrift stores you go to as if they are Macy's. Get on their mailing and email list. Participate in their coupons.

When you go in the door, ask "What is on sale?"

Sometimes everything with red tags might be 75% off, or anything with a green tag 50% off, it varies from store to store.

Examine cleaning recommendations, etc., to make your decisions.

Last Chance Thrift Store had a buy one sweater and get the second one of a lesser price free. I ended up with four nice sweaters for under $ 12. Total. They are nice sweaters in great colors I will wear for years.

Put the money you have saved towards a bigger item in your budget.
