When dealing with a thrift store as intense as this one, our strategy is pretty simple. We start with the junior's section because that's typically where more of the current/trendy stuff is. Then we work our way around the perimeter of the store, always ending with the dresses (our biggest weakness).
Today the strategy worked maybe a little too well because by the time we hit the dressing room our basket was filled to the brim.
As usual, a few items didn't really work but we ended up liking an excessive amount and having to part with a few winners. That didn't stop our final haul from covering the majority of the dressing room floor.
There was a ton of awesome household nick knacks that I was dying to buy for Dani's apartment next fall. Unfortunately I had to think logically and remember that anything I buy has to somehow make the trek back to Colorado... and that I'd rather spend money on clothes.
