We do most of our thrifting at our local Goodwill store. A lot of Goodwill stores run a "Color of the Week" sale. At our store, with this special, clothing with the color of the week tag, is $1. Today, we were able to get to get two pairs of Old Navy of jeans for $1 each.
Sometimes they'll have a sign on the door or in the front of the store that tells what the color of the week is. If you don't see one, ask an employee at the register if there is a Color of the Week sale (some GW's don't have these) and find out what they color is and what the sale means. It may mean clothing is $1 or it may mean that it's 50% off.
Keep in mind that not all clothing will have the same color tag. For example, the color of the week at our store this week was orange. Most of the jeans have blue tags, but we found these jeans with orange tags. You just have to look. When you thrift, you have to do a little more work to find something than if you went to a "regular" store, but to us, that's part of the fun. It's like a treasure hunt to find the best deal you can.
Stop back by here tomorrow for our 2nd addition of It's New to Me.
