Since our move here, I've become an avid thrift-shopper. In the past, I've usually only gone into a thrift store when looking for a specific item that I really didn't want to have to pay for or when shopping with my Mom. Needless to say, the budget we live on here has taught me that if I can't find it at the thrift store, I may not need the item at all :)
Our local store is an incredibly well-run and clean place that I enjoy going. Plus, it is also the local food pantry, so all proceeds go to support those in our community. On the days I come into town, I usually stop by for a quick stroll through, whether I need something or not. Today when I was there, I was realizing that this was my new form of retail therapy :) In LA, I used to go wander at Target or Ross after work ... finding cute or useful things and decompressing from work. Although I don't really need to decompress from work anymore, it is still fun to have a place to wander through to see if I can find something fun.
