Do you shop in thrift stores? If we didn't live in NYC where bed bugs are rampant, we'd shop at thrift stores a lot more, but they're still a great place to take donations when we're doing our own spring cleaning. We discovered this room over at ThriftyChicks.com. Everything in it except the mattress and bedding was found at thrift stores.
The Thrifty Chicks blog is inspirational, and the editors have a real knack for finding great things in thrift stores. They even share some of their tips here. They've also created a petition on Facebook to have a National Thrift Store Month.
In these tight economic times, why not see what thrift stores have to offer before buying something brand new?
