Spend some of that inheritance dear, stop with the thrift stores, get something nice. Ever since my mother passed I have heard this countless times from countless people. Thrift store shopping still seems to carry with it a stigma, some sort of deprivation. Not for me, in fact it brings with the the high of finding a treasure. Toss in that it goes easy on my budget and treads lightly on Mother Earth, it seems like a win win situation. So even though our financial life is a bit flush lately (something the self-employed know is cyclical, with downs ahead) I am sticking to my frugal ways. Here is my latest favorite find. Just under $5 and I wore it this past week thanks to the winter that simply won't stop giving.
Here's to frugality, something I choose each and every day.
