Hello, Fearless Folks, this post is so late. It was meant to read “Hello Summer” but because of the timing of the publication, I had to edit it a bit … enjoy these bright and fun photos.
Samnie Coleman, a good friend of Fearlessly Living and the creator of Thrift_Ventures, will be taking over the creative post for this month. She is a longtime thrifter and was ecstatic to share some of her ideas with all of you fearless folks, ENJOY!
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.
By the age of 15, I already knew how I wanted my life to turn out. I had a plan; a timeline.
- Graduate high school by the age of 18
- Graduate college by the age of 23
- Become a doctor by the age of 27
- Married by the age of 29
- Buy a house by age of 30
