I love thrifting too! I would totally rather spend my money on my daughter than on new clothes for me - but sometimes they are necessary. You've also got me inspired to throw a swapping party....now I need to think of friends that wear the same size as me! Thanks!


Great ideas! Some other things that I do--
-Avoid buying clothes that are "dry clean only"--though I understand there are eco-friendly dry cleaning processes these days, I'd just rather not deal with the hassle. It helps that I have a job with a casual dress code.
-Cut down on the laundry loads by wearing clothes (or using towels) more than once before washing (but as you can understand, with a very active boy at home, this is not always possible!)
I would love to know which thrift stores are your favorites by the way.


Great tip about not washing clothes after every single use! I sometimes spot wash my boys' jeans to try to stop the wear and tear from constant laundering.

For thrift stores - I love Better Than Ever on Grand Ave. for myself and I tend to find good boys clothes at Once Upon A Child.

I've created fun patches for holes as well as ruffles to lenghten my daughters jeans in the past.

These are some of my frugal sewing posts:


Brilliant idea... I want to find a clothes swapping party!
