Rise In Interest In Thrift Shopping

As someone who has always loved thrifting, I am loving seeing more people see the value in it.

To me, and to many others, it is a great way to feel good about the purchases you are making. That you don't need to spend all your money to showcase your personal style, to find things that you feel great in. Even with furniture and home decorating, I love finding those pieces that surprise you and make your home uniquely you.

You see it all over TikTok and other social media sites, people showing off their awesome secondhand finds.

As the conversations against "fast fashion" (check out the r/ethicalfashion Reddit thread) brands and its negative effects on the environment continue, more people are turning to thrifting to reduce their carbon footprint.

Things To Keep In Mind While Thrifting

It's easy with such lower-than-retail prices, to get swept up in the impulse-buying. However, take the time to consider if you really either need the item(s), will actually use them or if it's just going to sit in a pile with other procrastinated DIY projects you MIGHT, someday get around to.

There are plenty of people and families out there who do still rely on thrift stores as their means to get clothing they need, home supplies, dishes, etc.

Also, if you are shopping secondhand as a way to help the environment, great! Just make sure to buy pieces you will use and not just end up in a landfill.

That being said, good luck and happy thrifting!
