Five Free Shirts!

Thrift stores are a great way to save money on housewares and clothing, but every now and then you get great stuff at such a ridiculously low price that you wonder how anyone lives without shopping at thrift stores. Case in point: 5 long-sleeved shirts for free.

I recently signed up for the store's email and text alerts. Every so often I get a notification of a half off sale or a 50-cent sale in which every item of a certain color tag is $.50. One day I got a text letting me know that there was a half off sale that day. It also said that if I showed the text to the cashier, I would receive a coupon for $5 off my next purchase. When I went, I bought a few things for the house and a few books that were on my wishlist (I love it when that happens!). The coupon was good $5 off a minimum purchase of $5.

I inventoried the house and our wardrobes to see what we needed. I found that I only had 2 long-sleeved shirts that were fit to wear out of the house.

I went back a couple days later and found out that there was a 50-cent sale going on for blue colored tags. As I searched the shirt racks, I kept an eye out for all blue tags. I insisted that every shirt I would buy had to fit me well, feel wonderful and that the color complement me.
Four shirts were blue tags so they were $.50. The other shirt was $3. The cashier used the coupon before applying tax, so there was none. They were completely free!

What have been your best thrift store scores?
