Thrifters Anonymous Link Up! Week 1

Thrifters Anonymous

So for years I have loved shopping, but not just regular, go into a store and shop...that was just too easy in my mom's eyes. We were not wealthy so we got creative. Most kids rejected thrift shopping, but for me, it was an adventure. Over the years I have really acquired a technique that I love sharing with all of my friends and this is my attempt to share it with all you lovely ladies...I also want you to share your steps, techniques, and secrets. Everyone has their own way of conquering a store and ALL ideas and techniques are needed when you venture off to your favorite one.

You can be an experienced shopper/thrifter or an amateur, the hope is we will help each other! I am going to make this a weekly series where I will share a step with you to help you in your quest for amazing finds. I named it Thrifters Anonymous, because it sometimes feels like I need to be around those who are as addicted. You know what I am talking about folks...have you ever tried going to a thrift store or any store for that matter with someone who has never been? It is soo hard and you then realize that there are certain types of people who really truly get it and together we form a unique club...If you are one of those individuals who feels overwhelmed, uncomfortable or wish you could find the things that everyone finds, than this is a perfect place for you, and if you are like me...let's share our tricks to help these folks out!

I can't wait to meet all of you and find out some new tricks to make thrifting more efficient, effective, and well let's face it... I just don't want to feel like the only crazy loony tune sweating and racing to the next rack, spending hours upon hours searching for that perfect treasure.

So every Sunday we will meet back here and reveal our thrifting techniques, secrets, or even just a find you have discovered recently. It doesn't have to be a thrift store, I am just talking smart finds. Finding sales and knowing how to save money on items others are paying full price for. I know that there are so many out there who are doing something similar, so let's bring in some fresh ideas to really help each other out! I was thinking of doing some sort of link up but for now I will start small...just leave a comment with your advice, sales, favorite stores, where to find coupons, etc... you get the gist right? Make sure to leave the  link for your blog or name of your blog so that we can follow you on your journey. Ok well we will see how this goes and tweek it if we need to. Thanks for all of your support I have such great feedback and it only makes me want to continue to explore because this is a learning process for me too..I am no EXPERT...I could use some advice too :O)
