Thrifty Thursday: Start Fresh


Thrifting is my jam!! I cannot wait to teach you simple tips and tricks to help you get the best deals possible. Since I’ve had to “penny-pinch” to basically keep my family alive and functioning, I’ve learned a lot about getting the best deal possible. There were multiple times that money was super tight for us, especially when I left my job to stay home with our first born, so I feel like I’ve become a pro in this area over the past eight years.

Of course a lot of the tips I provide will be for furniture painters and stagers, but don’t worry if you don’t paint or stage, this information is going to be educational for YOU too! I am going to teach you more efficient ways to hit-up:

  • Yard-sales

  • Habitat for Humanity ReStore

  • The Goodwill

  • Craigslist

  • Facebook Marketplace

  • Flea Markets

  • Auctions

  • Estate Sale

  • Tag Sales

  • Consignment Stores

  • Grocery Store Coupons

  • Trash Finds,

  • Clearance sections at big-box stores,

  • Etc.

I will teach you what to look for, approximately how much money you should spend on certain items, when to look for certain things throughout the year and so on. It’s going to be awesome and hopefully very helpful for you!!

Since this is my first ever #ThriftyThursdaysWithFallon, I am going to start by saying you need to begin in your own home before you go anywhere else. You may be surprised what you find in the boxes that you’ve had stored away for months! Typically my rule of thumb is, if you haven’t used or decorated with an item in 2 years (3 years max), and same goes with clothes, then get rid of it! Are you really going to use it now? Probably not. Be a blessing and give the items to someone you know, donate them to a local charity or have a yard sale.

Shop in your own closet first and clean out what you don’t use or need anymore….and let me know if you want to get rid of any your awesome wooden furniture. Hahaha. ;-) But for real, start going through your things so you can start fresh.
