TIP: The Best Shopping Days are Upon Us

From now until late February, thrift shops will be flush with merchandise. As consumers spend the last few days of the year cleaning out their closets in search of tax deductions, you will likely have the best selection in the next few weeks than at any other time of year. The more people donate, the fuller the shelves and racks become in your favorite thrift shops. The more the racks overflow, the better the shopping for you and me.

In addition to everyday items like clothing and household goods, you will probably see an abundance of holiday decor, toys and furniture, as folks make space for the gifts they received (or bought for themselves) during the most recent holiday season. So if you have the storage space, stock up on seasonal items you can use next year, as well as special items you can tuck away and give as gifts.

Pay pennies for new-to-you clothing and housewares

Imagine being able to buy pricey, but gently used, name brand outfits for your kids from Abercrombie & Fitch, Hollister or North Face for a small fraction of what they cost new. You'll even spot furniture, silver and glassware for your home for less than a meal out. Or find something for yourself from Chico’s, J. Jill or Lilly Pulitzer and pay for it with the change from the bottom of your purse. Those are the kinds of deals to be had at thrift shops.
