I almost hate writing this because thrifting is so freakin’ fabulous. But let me tell you, when Value Village tries to charge me $8.99 for a maternity shirt from 2003 I have to shake my head and wait around for 50% off holiday Monday. Feel me?
I mean, if it is really super cool, I won’t pass it up. Even if it is $8.99. But you better bet your britches that I have a 20% off coupon from a recent VV donation. Because, that’s right, you don’t even have to pay full price at the thrift shop.
Anyways, I’m hear to tell ya that sometimes the clearance rack can offer a better deal than the thrift store. Don’t believe me … check out the awesomeness below and you will no longer be a doubter.
Here’s my recent Old Navy adventure …
On most days it seems like kid’s tops range from $1.99-$4.99 at thrift stores, so you can see why this is a pretty super deal for brand spankin’ new!
And then, I was wandering through Target, because, obviously, and I found this for brother …
Old Navy and Target are where I usually find the better-than-thrifting deals. Sometimes Gap. Sometimes H&M. It isn’t guaranteed and you have to resist the temptation to splurge on the $34.99 dress that makes you look super hott, but it can be done!
A few notes …
- Clearance almost never trumps garage sales – those are always going to win. Especially since you can bargain there.
- The next 50% off day at Value Village is tomorrow – Monday the 25th! All clothing, shoes, accessories, and bed/bath are 1/2 off. WOOHOO!
