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! 🙂
