Turn Up and Save Up – Virtuous Thrifting Tips


Steph and Necia LOVE to go thrifting. Most of our favorite items are lost gems found in a local thrift store. We are true bargain hunters and know how to ball on a budget. Let’s dive in! Here are few tips on thrifting.

  • Go on a full stomach, comfortably dressed for the weather. Some stores do not use heat or air, so dress accordingly.
  • Check color tag(s) of the day. Typically, the color tag will have an additional discount on the marked price, sometimes up to 75% off.
  • Sign-up for the rewards program to receive coupons and credit on items purchased if available. We have saved tons of money by being a VIP member! You also we receive notifications of special sales.
  • Location will provide example as to what type of merchandise will be found in the store; Nice location=nicer items or vintage location=more vintage items.
  • Shop out of season!  When the seasons change there will be mark downs – Carpe Diem! Take advantage!
