Thrift stores aren't exactly the first place I turn to when I want to go shopping. In fact, I think I have really only shopped at a thrift store a handful of times. The problem is that I get really overwhelmed sorting through a bunch of stuff I don't like. And sometimes I end up leaving with things that I think I like and then I get home and I feel just kind of "meh" about it. I usually just think it's easier to go to stores I know I like. But then, I get really envious when I see people find really great things for a steal at thrift stores and I think, "maybe I should give it a try..."
One such person is Mandy Anderson, the gal behind Mile High Thrifter. I am so excited to have her as a guest blogger today on My Boring Closet sharing the benefits of thrifting and why you should start right now!
I'm so honored to be Lacey's first guest blogger. My name is Mandy Anderson and you can find me at milehighthrifter.com or on Instagram and Facebook as MileHighThrifter. Within this post, I hope to inspire each of you to thrift, whether it's your first time or you are a seasoned veteran. I found myself drawn to fashion at a really young age and quickly learned that in order to indulge frequently, I was going to have to learn to how to pinch some pennies. Thats where thrifting comes in!
