I am a frequent shopper at Salvation Army thrift stores. They reward me for my patronage. I wish other thrift stores would do the same. At the Salvation Army stores in my area, they offer a Super Shopper Club card. Basics of the card are for every 10 dollars you spend, you get 1 stamp on your card. Collect 10 stamps and you can redeem your card for a $5 bag full of clothes.
I have been holding onto my full card for several weeks now. The past few times I have gone to the Salvation Army, I have not found many clothing items, at least not enough to justify the $5 bag. I did not want to waste my card! Today my patience paid off. I stuffed all of the following items into one plastic shopping bag, normal size.
Gifts for Others:
– 1 shirt for my cousin, Wendy
– 2 shirts for my cousin, Bess
– 1 blouse for my Mom
– 1 blouse for my friend, Katie
– 3 dresses, 3 bibs, 1 hat, 4 bloomers, 5 pants, and 11 onesie outfits for my future niece
Clothing for Pete:
– 2 t-shirts
Clothing for Cason:
– 1 pair of shorts
– 2 onesie outfits
Clothing for Me:
– 2 tank tops for exercise/work-outs
– 7 short-sleeve blouses
– 1 pair cargo shorts
– 1 skirt
All of those clothes for $5! Awesome! If you have a Salvation Army thrift store in your area, find out if they have a Super Shopper card program. If you are in the Florence, Alabama area, the locations in Florence and Sheffield both honor the cards. I love the fact they have some type of frequent shopper program and I wish other thrift stores would do the same.
I went to the Blue Door Thrift Store on Tuesday. I do not frequent this thrift store that often (it is on the other side of town), but I try to stop in about once a month. I bought several items, but the best one was for my baby, Cason. I have been looking for a walker/bouncer exerciser for him for the past few weeks. I have seen many, but most have been very dirty and/or missing several pieces. I came across a Graco Lights and Sound Walker and it was in fabulous condition. There was a mommy-to-be looking it over as I spotted it from a distance. She took a few steps past it and I
calmly walked swooped in for it. $15 and it was in great condition! Yes, I was giddy with excitement and could not wait to get in home, clean it, sanitize it, and try it out with Cason.
He L-O-V-E-D it!!! Check out a few of his pics in his new apparatus.
Found anything good at the thrift stores lately? I would love to hear about it if you have!
