Things You Should Never Buy New

Buying “new” is a default for many of us. We’ve been conditioned to go to the store, walk down the correct aisle, and purchase what we’ve come for. Yet, a trip to your local thrift store may prove to be just as effective. Keep a running list of the household and clothing items you need and make short frequent visits to the thrift store nearest you and discover how easily you find what you need. Plus, there’s nothing like the thrill of the hunt! When treasures appear, you can hardly believe your good fortune. As well, your wallet and our good planet will thank you for it.
