It's cold in Atlanta. Well let me correct myself... it's cold in the morning and it's colder at night, which can only mean that winter is right around the corner. So what does that mean for us fashion forward females? Resolve: WE NEED ACCESSORIES! I am not talking about jewelry (even though that's easiest way to transform any look). I'm talking about hats, gloves, and scarves. Think of these items as your new add-ons to your already fabulous thrifted jewels. Now is the time, if you haven't done so already, to start looking for your thrifted outer coat accessories.
Thrift Tip: It's always great to go rack by rack, but if you want to have the best thrifted outer coat accessories, go to that section first. Since it's typically the smallest category in any thrift store, you want to be one of the lucky ones to thrift the good stuff. This section is usually sprinkled throughout the store. I have seen it near the register or in a small metal bin hovered over a random rack, but even I, the thrift store guru, have trouble locating it at times. If you're having issues finding this section, ask an employee. They are always willing to help and they know the thrift store like the back of their hand.

I have two topics of discussion. I promise to make it short and sweet!
Topic No. 1: My Thrift Store Run
So I finally had a chance to spend some time in one of my favorite thrift stores last weekend and I SCORED BIG! I did my usual scouting of the clothing racks. Of course, I found a lot of the current fashion trending apparel. This trip, however, was a little different. I found myself actively searching for some home appliances. What I saw was truly a sight to see. Not only did they have rugs, chairs, books, and bicycles, but they had what I needed the most... A VACUUM! I even bought some bathroom decor.
Topic No. 2: The Nifty Lifestyle
As sad as it makes me to even write this, but what I'm about to say is true. Thrift stores/ consignment shops/ vintage boutiques can't provide us with every necessity needed. We have to go to the grocery store, gas stations, and sometimes even the Pharmacy's (i.e. CVS, Rite Aid, etc), but guess what... You don't have to pay full price. I have been going crazy in CVS lately. I signed up to receive emails for my ExtraBucks CVS rewards card. I was a little apprehensive initially because I thought they were going to spam my email account with useless emails. However, the opposite happened. Literally, it is like getting money in the mail. I have gotten free soap, free paper towels, free bath needs. I just got an email saying I can get 30% off my next purchase. Not to mention the fact that I already have some ExtraBucks on my CVS card which is CVS money. A great way to save even more is to pair these already insane deals with coupons found in your local newspaper.
Taking my lead from the free stuff I have gotten from CVS, I entered my email address at the Redbox Kiosk. I have been getting some random emails, but a lot of the emails have promo codes that all me to get free movies.
So what is The Nifty Lifestyle? SAVE at all cost!
Don't believe anything I wrote. Pictures Posted tomorrow! I just had to share my thrifted thoughts for today.
To promote frugal yet creative and trending fashion statements.
