    Thrift Shops and Bargain Hunting Finds

    in Lifestyle

    Do you shop at thrift stores?  Do you like to find a good bargain?  What makes one "feel good" about finding a deal on something at a store?  Why is it that we dig into the details of getting a "good deal" on things we buy at a store but often overlook what makes us "feel good" in our daily living?  Why are prices so high and what can we do about rising prices in all industries?  


    Do you like to find deals so that you can spend your money on entertainment?  Why do we spend so much money on entertainment?  Would you travel thousands of miles to see your "favorite" entertainment?  Today, I will help you see why you might want to look for bargains to change your life!  

    P. S. - I love to talk in metaphors and give you analogies to take your mind beyond its last thought or following another's thoughts!  You rock!

She always found designer clothes, unique vintage pieces, and some of the hottest trends for only a fraction of the cost in retail stores. When she would tell her friends how much she spent on an outfit, they began to ask her to shop for them and style them for special occasions.
