Thrifting 101: My Thrifting Philosophy

Monday, June 1, 2015

I thrift mostly because:    

  • Because it's therapeutic
  • It’s my personal escape
  • For the thrill of the find
  • I also thrift to support great CAUSES!

The more I thrift shopped I began to pay more attention to the cause behind thrift shops* I asked myself what is the thrift shops’ purpose for existing? In other words, who do the proceeds benefit?

Is it for a good cause?  A cause that does good by using their proceeds to fund causes such as

  • Battered Women
  • Hospice
  • Victims of Home Fires
  • Orphaned Children
  • Women/Men in addiction recovery
  • Disabled veterans- **I'm a veteran **
** I make a conscious effort to shop and donate to thrift stores that fall into any of the forementioned categories! 

What is your thrifting philosophy?


  1. Thank you for sharing this info! I really never considered that my thrifting could actually contributing to charitable causes!!

    1. Hi Kyndall,
      Yes , as I began to thrift more I wanted to be sure I was shopping at places that used the proceeds to help those who need it the most. Thanks for your comment.
