According to the Oxford Dictionary thrift is “the quality of using money and other resources carefully and not wastefully:…”
Thrifting was an embarrassment to me, I felt ashamed when my mother would take my siblings and me to the Goodwill or the Salvation Army to shop for clothing and other household needs. Today, thrifting is not only exciting it is the financially responsible thing to do. Took me some time to come to the realization but when I did there was no stopping me. I now take pride in my thrifty ways. My mother would jokingly say for birthdays and holidays she will get me a Goodwill gift card, I loved the idea.
