5 Reasons to Thrift:
1. Support a Good Cause
Ever wonder where the money goes when you buy from a thrift store?
Most thrift stores support various charities or even have their own.
2. The Thrill of Thrifting
Thrifting is like a giant treasure hunt. Many thrifters shop for the
thrill of finding a diamond in the rough. Simply put, thrifting is fun.
3. The Rare and Vintage
There are so many things you find thrift shopping that would just never be
possible to pick up at your local Wal-Mart or Target. The most obvious example is
vintage items which are often donated and picked up by lucky thrifters.
4. Save Money
Why spend $30 on a shoes from Target when you can buy a pair for
$4.75 at Goodwill? Thrifters find all kinds of ways to save money on
everything from clothing and shoes to books and office supplies.

and pocket the change.
