Thrift Store Shopping?

There was a great post by Simple Mom in my reader this morning titled, 12 Tips for Thrift Store Shopping. I’ve never been much of a Thrift Store shopper. My brother in law is and finds great stuff. My sister went and purchased snow pants for her entire family one day at a thrift store. But I’ve never had much luck… aside from the VCR we bought for $7 last year. 🙂

So I thought I’d ask our readers, “Do you thrift shop? If so, where do you go? How often? Do you go with something specific in mind, or just to look?” There are three thrift stores (that I’m aware of) within 3 miles of my house (I’m in Boise)… maybe it’s time for me to delve in? Seeing racks and racks of clothes overwhelms me and it feels like a tedious task to search through hundreds of items, just to find that “great find”! Help me out here ladies… my five year old needs a new pair of church pants and I’m thinking I may go on a hunt.

What are your thoughts and experiences?
