I was lucky enough to have grown up in a household where things were never just given to me. (I can, of course, admit that now...now that I'm out of my parent's house.)
I got my first summer job at the age of 14 and was babysitting even before that, and it was that money that I saved and spent throughout most of the year.
I guess that might be one reason why thrifting has become so important to me. With what little money I saved, I rarely went out and bought expensive things back then...and even today, the thought of forking out big bucks on something (that will inevitably be changed down the road), kind of...well, makes my stomach churn.
My husband, however aspires something much different.
Thoughts of sailing around the world on some grandiose yacht...is only the half of it.
His dreamy ambitions always make me smile.
But, I have to say, with such an extraordinary husband, our most precious, little girl and now our $2 thrift vacuum...
I feel like I'm already enjoying "the good life."
Happy hunting, everyone. Pin It Now!
