I know that whenever I can, I hit up my local Goodwill. And when I travel, I always search out the nearest Goodwill–especially if it’s in a college town. Those are the ones where you can find the best stuff that college students have left behind!

Need a Halloween Costume Cheap? Check Your Local Thrift Store

October 26, 2010

A few weeks ago I got a package from The Savers stores’ PR team with a Snooki wig in it. Well, actually it said “Jersey Shore Girl,” but one look at that “bump” in the hair and you knew exactly which Jersey Shore girl this was. (My daughter had fun trying on the wig with her friends, taking pictures and posting them on Facebook. However, none of them actually wanted to use that wig as part of their Halloween costume.) Seems that this gal from “Jersey Shore” is supposed to be one of the hot costumes for Halloween 2010,...

Martin Luther King Monday has become a day of service in many parts of America. This national holiday, which honors the civil rights’ leader’s birthday and is held each year on the third Monday of January, usually means a day off for school children and workers alike, giving them a chance to give back in one way or another. If you haven’t signed up to help a good cause today, here’s one way you can help: make today the day that you bring donations to your local church thrift store or soup pantry, or good causes with retail locations,...

10 Tips for Thrift Store Shopping

Now that we’ve embraced frugal living, I’ve learned to fall in love with thrift-store shopping. It’s a love that I’m passing along to my own daughters, ages 11 and 13, as I wrote about in this back-to-school shopping post. And when I say thrift store, I’m not just talking about a clothing collection in a church basement (though you can find some rare gems there, too). What I’m thinking are consignment shops, resale chains like Plato’s Closet and well-known stores like Goodwill. Recently, I was reading a piece over at the Simple Mom blog on thrift store shopping tips....

For many years my primary income came from writing about weddings.

My last (to have been published) wedding book is called Tie the Knot on a Shoestring: Its subtitle is “Save big $$ while celebrating your special day in style.” There are two reasons that I’m bringing...
