Thrift Store Shopping
Long story short, we haven't gone clothes shopping for Ryan in about 3 years or better, and he was in some serious need of clothing. His four pair of jeans were holey-er than Sister Christian.
So, we headed up to the Goodwill store. For about $60.00, we were able to get him:
(3) pair Levi's jeans
American Eagle shirt
Calvin Klein shirt
Fender (as in the Guitar) shirt
(2) cargo shorts
(3) athletic shorts
The Levi's would have cost more than $60.00 new by themselves. I don't really know retail clothing prices, but I figure we got a couple-hundred dollars worth easy.
I was able to find a shower curtain rod I needed for about $5.00, and cute pair of Minnatonka Moccasins with beading for about $3.00. I didn't need those, but I wanted them.
Shopping Thrift Stores can save you a boatload of money on alot of things, from clothing to home decor. Most of the things are in perfectly good condition. Some things are in *clean-up-able* condition, like the shower curtain rod I bought had some smears and smudges of something on it. I didn't overthink what kind of nasty it might be, and washed it good with a bleach cleaner wipe. Good as new. We looked and these poles are almost $12.00 new at Walmart.
