When you need to update your wardrobe or purchase some new furniture, thrift shopping is a great alternative to spending at expensive stores.
Most secondhand shops sell lightly used designer goods well below their original prices. And although there are certainly some items that you want to avoid buying used, thrift stores have plenty of great things to offer. Plus, many of them partner with deserving charities, which makes thrifting a win-win situation.
