I found this store. They didn’t find me.
And I’m obsessed.
For Christmas, my uncle gave me a Target gift card.
You may be thinking that I did a haul not too long ago and are now judging me for my materialistic ways and lack of money savings.
But any shopaholic knows that buying something with a gift card isn’t really spending money and it’s a gift, hence I’m justified. That was easy logic.
Thank you, Tio, for the gift card. Now let me show you guys what I bought!
Today is Martin Luther King Junior day. Lucky students, employees, and city workers got the day off.
By pure luck, my entire family got the day off from work, school, and bible studies. And a follow-up question, bright and sparkly, presented itself: So what are we gonna do?
We’re the Koontzes. We hike, and camp, and go to the movies, and eat junk food, and go thrift shopping.
Overwhelmed. I was overwhelmed. I’m still overwhelmed!
The truth is I had work for seven hours Saturday morning and didn’t feel like spending the rest of my now-free Saturday stuck at home. My family said there was a sale at the thrift store. I couldn’t believe we were still lounging about the house! We all got dressed, I put what I thought was around ten dollars of tip money in my wallet, and we sped on down to our favorite thrifting spot, eyes wide, lips licking, and rubbing our hands together in excited anticipation.
Last Saturday, I went to – get this – Sacks ThriftAvenue in Hemet, CA. Isn’t that awesome? It made me “aww” aloud. I think it’s really clever.
Even when I saw the board, “Five dollar bag of clothes. Limit three pairs of jeans, two purses, two pairs of shoes, belts. $1 for the bag.” (This is from memory, so you know.Don’t rely too much on it.) Still, I wasn’t planning on buying anything. Honest to goodness.
