How to thrift like a Pro
It's no secret I like to thrift. I've been doing it my whole life. I followed my mom around when I was young, I made a lot my punk-rock clothes in high school from used T-shirts, and now, B and I have managed to furnish and decorate our house almost ENTIRELY with found items. Doing anything for a long amount of time will cause one to learn a thing or two. While I do not call myself an expert, I do pride myself on being able to score great deals while giving old items a new home. Awhile ago, I was asked to write for The Sun-Times' special section and today I am sharing what I have learned throughout my years as a thrifter.
