16 Thrift Store Tips for Shopping Secondhand — The Honest Consumer

Try DIY projects

If you’re feeling creative, thrift stores are a great place to find items that you can upcycle or repurpose into something new and unique. Repurposing is not only a fun hobby, but it also reduces waste and gives old items a new life.

Shop with a purpose

It’s important to have an idea of what you’re looking for when thrift shopping, whether it’s specific items or styles. This will prevent you from making impulsive purchases and help you stay within your budget.

Don’t be afraid to negotiate

Thrift stores often have flexible pricing and are open to negotiation. If you find an item that is priced higher than what you’re willing to pay, don’t be afraid to ask for a lower price.

Consider online thrifting

Online secondhand shopping is a great option too! There are so many apps and online stores dedicated to thrifting! I personally use Poshmark and Mercari. We have a great list of online thrift shops! You can even shop my Poshmark closet.

Thrifting is a fantastic way to save money, reduce waste, and find unique items. With the tips mentioned in this guide, you can make the most out of your secondhand shopping experience.

Hopefully you’ve learned some tips to shop more sustainably and save money!
