National Thrift Store Month – Make it Happen!

We have a National Prune Month.

We have a National Noodle Month.

We have a National Bread Machine Baking Month.

So why not a National Thrift Store Month?  Reusing and recycling second-hand goods from t-shirts to teapots is a wonderful way to make sure we are using our resources wisely. So much junk is produced each year and our society has become wasteful–buying and throwing away items that are barely used just because we want something else.

Thrift stores also provide people with jobs and most thrift stores are non-profits or support charity organizations.  They ensure that millions of pounds of clothing and household goods do not end up in the landfill every year.  And you know what else?  They are fun!  That’s right…shopping in thrift stores is fun. You never know what treasures you’ll find at prices that are far below regular retail prices.
