Being Eco-Friendly and Cheap by Buying Secondhand Clothes

Confession. Apart from buying food,  I am a cheapo. Especially when it comes to buying clothes. I simply cannot bring myself to buy a piece of cloth that costs over $10, regardless of the name printed on the tags. Thankfully, there are stores out there that allow me to shop for cute outfits without the added guilt of buying it. Any thrift store I see, I want to check out their clothing merchandise. My favorite place to visit is Goodwill’s . Armed with additional seasonal discount coupons (sad….. I know), I love to take my friends and browse through the rows upon rows of awesome clothes. If you look through the mountain of clothes, you will occasionally find a nugget or two of gold.

My little nuggets of gold (only some not all)

My little black dress = a whopping $1!

– An awesome pair of Banana Republic Jeans for a cool $2!

– Aeropostle Jeans for $1

– Cute boots for $2.50

– 4 designer dresses totaling in a whopping $7 dollars

– A pair of designer high heels for $7

– A Northface sweater for $3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (gasp!)

My point being, you can always look good and be cheap at the same time.

I soon realize that my frugal habits not only keep my pocketbook happily full but I am also practicing eco-friendly shopping habits. By buying secondhand clothing from local consignment store, not only am I supporting my local area, I am reusing perfectly good clothing that is well made and fabulous to wear. I am practicing one of the three founding principles of green living (recycle, reuse, and reduce). So join me in saving planet Earth by looking cute and sexy in secondhand clothes!
