thrifting is addictive

I have decided that it was time that I take a break from the thrift stores – they are so addictive!!!! 🙂

I have been to one yesterday and another two today. It is just a great feeling to be able to see all the interesting items and purchase them for affordable prices.

I have purchased from thrift stores so many things over the years, including blouses/shirts, purses, cardigans, pots/planters, porcelain plates for planters, sewing materials, small furniture, frames, decorative items, and many more. I am in love with the idea of having great items and saving money while also helping others. I also love the fact that I do not (usually) buy things that I would not love, use, or need. Yet, I figured that it became my favorite past-time activity, and since the prices are so good and items are so nice, I keep buying.

I do not want to buy anymore. I have a great wardrobe supplemented by thrift purchases. I have around 30 pots/planters already. It is like I am hoarding them now.

I have everything I need right now.

I was once proud of re-purposing and re-using items that I had. Not anymore. I now keep buying from thrift stores.

Time for a decluttering activity, donating what I have extra, and focusing on re-purposing items.

Wish me luck! 🙂

  1. I just plain need to declutter, even though I have not been to any thrift stores! It’s amazing how it piles up. I’ve been taking on small areas the past few days and cleaning them up. It’s better for me to do it that way than to try to clean a huge area at once!

    1. I admire that plan. My case, however, should be all at once, otherwise I will not finosh it 🙂 the last time I did declutter was a few years back. It was an amazing feeling, which I am looking forward to. Of course, I should not think that will be an opportunity to “fill” the space again 🙂

  2. I am totally guilty of being a thrift shop addict. I go through each one carefully when I have time (we have 8 on our main street, less than three minutes away!). That being said I do buy now only to replace something or to fulfil a need. And if something is being replaced, then the replaced item does need to be taken, well, to the thrift shop XD Some of them accept worn out items as they become rags, which saves textiles from being put in the bin.

    1. I fully agree with you about donating the things that I do not use/need anymore – this is one of my aims now (I am sure I will love decluttering my home and then donating items so that others can make use). You have access to many thrift stores!!! I would lose myself in them :)))))
