If you’re an avid thrifter or garage-sale-hopper then you know the importance of having a buddy with you to make your shopping trip more successful. If you’re thinking of taking your first trip to the thrift store than a highly recommend getting a thrift buddy. Your thrift buddy should be someone who knows you well and someone you know equally as well, respect their opinion, work well with, and is as enthusiastic as you are about finding deals. For me my thrift buddy is my mom. If you’re lucky enough to have your own mother as your buddy then you know what an asset you have. My mother is never afraid to tell me the truth about something, but in a way that makes me listen, she keeps me on track, and gets just as excited when we strike thrifting gold. I’d like to think I offer her the same qualities.
When my mom and I are out looking for clothing items we utilize each other by separating to cover more ground, offering each other our opinions to make wise decisions, and utilizing overall teamwork to make the process as easy-going as possible.
Who is your thrift buddy and how do you two help each other out? What other ways does your thrift buddy help you out?
Thank you for stopping by, and happy thrifting to you.
