One way to support a green living lifestyle is to recycle. Have you thought about the impact you can make by shopping at thrift stores? I used to be weirded out by the thought of it, but after reading other blogs about it, I’ve gotten over it. Plus, I really am motivated by saving lots of money!
I went to my local Goodwill store today to pick up a few dishes to make a cake plate like the ones I’ve seen pinned on Pinterest, but I got distracted when I took a quick peek at the blue jeans.
I found a pair of Raefella jeans for only $7. At my store, every Sunday they change the color of the week. And today the color was blue. These jeans had a blue tag so they were an additional 50% off!
Then I was so close to the blazers (which I love for work.) I can’t believe I found a Michael Kors blazer for only $5. Now, I had to make an outfit so I went to the sweater rack and the shirts.
I found a pink sweater for $2.50 because it was on sale. Wow!
I put this outfit together for only $10. All name brand items!
You won’t believe what else I found!
I found a Micheal Kors blazer for $5, Rafella jeans for $3, Ralph Lauren shirt for $3.50, Jones of New York jeans for $7, a Talbots sweater for $5, a suit for $10, a Liz Claiborne sweater for $5, another pair of jeans and a scarf. All of this at a retail store would cost about $500.
I only paid $42 for my entire shopping spree! We are talking quality stuff here. I never did get the cake plate supplies… Oh well, I’ll just have to make another trip another day.
In the past I would have been ashamed to say I shopped at Goodwill, but now I am proud. I save money, plus I am helping a charity, and I am keeping these clothes from being thrown in a landfill. I think it shows financial wisdom too!
Have shopped at thrift stores? What is your best find? How do you think this supports living green? Join the party and link up your thrifty finds.

Let’s help 50,000 families become Eco-Friendly for Earth Day!
(post updated for April 2012)
For the Shaklee Family, every day is Earth Day. But this is a great time of year to tell our environmental story, and to teach how easy – and thrifty – it can be to make a difference for yourself, for your family, and for the planet. One healthier home at a time.
Consider this: one family deciding to convert to our non-toxic biodegradable household cleaners keeps the equivalent of 5,000 bottles of conventional “ready-to-use” glass cleaner out of landfills. What would it mean if 50,000 families did the same? A great big thanks from the planet, and from people all over the world who share this wonderful home we call Earth.
In honor of Earth Day, for the month of April, Shaklee will be offering everyone a world of savings, some great ways to make an impact for the planet, and a nice way to make a healthy living too.
