A Conversation for Tips for Saving Money

Shop at Charity Shops

Post 1

Almost all charities operate shops where they sell used items donated by supporters. Housewares, books, clothing, toys. You name it. Spend a little time shopping several of these places and you will soon discover the one(s) which have quality merchandise at extremely low prices. I paid US$10 and US$7.50 (this latter one was a half-price sale at the Salvation Army), for two suits which must have cost US$375 to US$500 new (and both looked new when I bought them). My two cream colored dress shirts cost US$3.50 each. My neckties regularly cost US$1.00 (except when they are on half-price sale). Similar bargains abound everywhere. Be selective and don't buy unless you need the item and it's a real bargain.
