1. Visit Your Local Thrift Shop as Often as Possible

Last but not least, you are more likely to find a good deal at your thrift store if you are shopping there often. If you only go to a thrift shop once a month on the weekend, it’s likely that you’re not going to find a good deal at all. In fact, a lot of the best deals happen in the middle of the work week or in the morning hours when most people are busy. Take some time to ask the employees when the slowest or the best time is for you to come in. 

Now that more people are working from home, it may be possible for you to have flexible hours during your work day. Many bosses don’t care when you get the work done, as long as it’s finished by the deadline. So if it’s possible for you to go to a thrift shop on your lunch break, you should seriously consider it. For a lot of people, this seems like too much of a hassle to do. However, the people who make the effort are the ones finding the best discounts.
