Women’s Money Week 2012: Consigning Clothes & Making Money

I am participating in the 2012 version of Women’s Money Week, which is all about encouraging women to speak up about money, take control of their finances, and reshape their financial futures. Women’s Money Week is a first annual event running from March 5th-11th, 2012 — coinciding with International Women’s Day. The organizers of Women’s Money Week have identified topics that bloggers like myself should be covering each day. Today is Day 1, and the topic is either entrepreneurship or making money. I’m choosing the latter, because in the past I’ve offered my Suddenly Frugal readers lots of ideas...

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).

Recently, I was reading a piece over at the Simple Mom blog on thrift store shopping tips....
