Here’s why you need a thrifting wishlist as well as my tried & true methods to completing it!
An item in this post was purchased with a gift card in exchange for my thoughts. All opinions expressed are my own.
Hold up! What’s a thrifting wishlist?
A thrifting wishlist is an index you create – whether on paper, online, or in your head – of items that you dream of one day finding at the thrift store.
What’s currently on my thrifting wishlist?
I keep a running tab of what I’m searching of in a text document as well as on a Pinterest board. If you’re ever curious what I’m looking for, this board has all the answers..
How am I finding list items so quickly?
Thrifting is a very tedious sport for patient people. You could spend months and years searching out your dream items but, my little secret is.. online shopping! Websites like eBay, Etsy, and ThredUp are my go-to destinations to cross items off my list.
ThredUp was gracious enough to hook me up with me a gift card to help make my thrifting dreams come true. I’ve been in search of patterned coats and they totally delivered! How cute is this houndstooth one? It was originally from Forever21 and even included new tags. That is some luck!
This method helped me score my favorite leopard print coat, an awesome pepto pink jacket, and even a totally rad mint green boombox that I can’t stop showing off!
So next time you feel defeated by the thrift stores, shop online instead. You just might be surprised by what you find! If saving money is a concern, use the code FOREVER50, which will get you 50% off first-time Forever 21 orders on ThredUp (discount up to $50). Happy shopping!
