30 Ways In 30 Days – Shopping Aware - Day 27

26Consignment

I have found an amazing thrift store by my house, I went in there a few months ago and spent $80.  For $80, I got a pair of jeans, several dress up jackets, cute tops (about 3) and a cardigan.  All of these items were also brand name, such as Anne Taylor, Banana Republic, Polo, White House Black Market and Express.  To me, brand name is not about status, because none of these brand names are displayed on the outside of the garment, it is about quality.  I find that brand name lasts longer and tends not to fade as quickly when compared with other brands of clothing.  It is simple, you purchase your new clothes and put them in the wash!  Like New!
