Thrifty Confession #2: I Can Look Fabulous for Less Than $2.00

Friday morning’s exploits find me taking my daughter to an audition on Milwaukee Avenue. Fifteen minutes and Jordan’s fabulous audition was complete. This left us with a lot of time to kill before I needed to hightail it back south to pick up my son. So I pulled out my trusty smart phone to see what new thrift experience could be found in this neck of the woods. You know I have to feed my DAILY thrifting jones. I have to admit this is new territory for me as I am rarely on the north side. My phone generated several thrifting possibilities so I  picked the one closest to my location. Off we went to 2500 North Milwaukee Avenue. I pulled up to the front door excited to go in and start my treasure hunt. One hour later I walked out with a baby blue 9 West wool coat and a grey Bromley Collection coat for $.90 a piece. Yes the decimal point is in the right place and no I am not missing a zero. I got 2 fabulous coats for less than $2.00. I have definitely earned my moniker today.  Ahhhhhhhhhhh addiction SATISFIED! Make sure you check back tomorrow for my next thrifty confession and fabulous find.

    I’m not a shopper period but I can really see your point. If the value is there why not partake? Value is not found in labels, it’s in knowing whether the product is safe and fits your needs.
    “There is no shame in the game if the need and purpose fits the same” lol
