The best bargain you will find in a thrift store is, without a doubt, jeans! Not only have the prices for these clothing items increased tenfold in the last few years, but they have continued to be high ever since the 2018 inflation. Believe it or not, the average price for jeans back then was $168.
For a fraction of the cost, you can find high-quality, even brand-named, used jeans. Depending on where you live, they can go as low as a tenner! To make matters even better, despite being pre-owned, a lot of these jeans have already gotten away from their uncomfortable fabric stage; having been worn and washed before, the fabric is way more forgiving now. Just keep an eye out for the best deals!
