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!

  1. Let’s not forget electronics! Some of the best electronics gadgets I have came from a thrift store. One that I use daily is a Fisher cd player. I bought this over 10 years ago for $5. It was an older model, but still in it’s original package. After getting it home, I emptied the box to see what my small investment included. I was shocked when it appeared that it had never been out of the box… ever! From the protective plastic on the digital readout, the factory packing, and even the unwrapped batteries it came with! It was like grandpa had gotten it from the grandkids but never had use for it. Treasures like this are rare, but always a welcomed addition.

  2. Went for a specific item, a walker for my Mom. Had several to choose from and the one I chose was discounted even further at the register. I had no idea.

  3. I will shop at both ARC and Good Will. I love buying books there, although Good Will has much better organization of their bookshelves.
    I’ve found great deals on collectible teapots and teacups, and I always buy a package of random greeting cards.
