12 Months of Thrifting: Shapes

Welcome to the 12 Months of Thrifting Challenge! The goal of the challenge is to help you add a “dash of thrift” to your outfits using 12 themes that you can easily find at secondhand stores.

Thrifting a Game

Now that we’re adjusting to the new school year routine, it’s time to take on this month’s 12 Months of Thrifting prompt by taking the kids to pick out a game at Goodwill. If you’re not a big thrifter, you might be surprised to know that thrift stores carry an excellent variety of games for the entire family.

Thrifting a play outfit for kids

Happy back-to school-season!
This month’s prompt for the 12 Months of Thrifting challenge is to focus on finding a play outfit or two for the kids. If you have children going back to school, this is a great time to head to Goodwill and cross some things off your list.  If your little one isn’t in school, it’s a great time to stock up a few play outfits for fall.

Thrifting a backpack

This month’s 12 Months of Thrifting prompt is to thrift a backpack for the upcoming school year. I took my niece and nephew with me Goodwill Akron to shop for backpacks that we can fill for a couple of families in need of school supplies this fall.

Thrifting Books for Kids

Before I became a mom, I would venture off to the children’s book section at Goodwill to buy books for my niece and nephew. Now that I have a little one of my own, I’ve been slowly building the nursery library with books from Goodwill. Besides the fact that books are incredibly affordable at 50 cents to $1 per book, I love the process of finding books at Goodwill.

Thrifting a dressy outfit for kids

As schedules start to fill up with spring holidays and summer events, it’s always a great idea to have a few dressy outfits on hand in advance so your family isn’t scrambling to find something for your little ones at the last minute.
