One day last week I went shopping for myself out of desperation to be comfy on my off days. Fist on the list: these cheapo men's house shoes/moccasins from Academy. For some reason I have been really wanting a pair! I wear them around the house with socks. They have zero padding or arch support and I don't care. And for $8 I consider them thrifty, since they are lined with flannel and made of suede.
All the women's styles had bows and/or fluffy fake sherpa inside them. ugh.
I went to my fav thrift shop and found a bonanza of blue jeans! Five pair of jeans in my size and in great shape! A couple of them will be "working in the yard" jeans. The others I can pair with a sweater and clogs while I am out running errands. Jeans are so expensive nowadays...these were marked $6 or less apiece AND the lady gave me a senior discount after tsk tsking me that I hadn't come on Wednesday when all the clothes were marked 50% off.
I also found 3 long sleeve shirts - one flannel, one corduroy, one broadcloth. I love that you can roll up the sleeves and usually I look for men's thrift store shirts so that I have more sleeve to work with. With my stylish moccasins I paid less than $30 for all of the above and now I am cozy comfy on my days off! What about you - done any thrifting lately?
