Wear Often, Wash Well, Pass On.

That (or something really similar) is what it says inside several of my kids' clothes from Old Navy. I love Old Navy by the way. In case you were curious. In case you wanted to buy me presents. Or in case you are Mr. or Mrs. Old Navy and you'd like to strike up an advertising deal. I love you. Really.

Casey in the cart at Salvation Army.

Where was I? Right, pass it on... We do this. Primarily through AmVets or Sav-A-Child (because they pick up) but also with Salvation Army and Goodwill. We also are frequent shoppers at Salvation Army (Wednesday is half off all clothing!), as I can't see purchasing clothes for full price when there are racks upon racks of perfectly good (great!) clothes for a small fraction of the cost. And all the money I spend goes to good (great!). We also do yard sales, estate sales and craigslist. Religiously. I figure, it stimulates the local economy. Like the one in my house. Hah! And it's good to pay it forward.

I think I lost my train of thought again. Woot! All aboard! Although, maybe you want to get off here. Crazy's not too far down the line.

i totally agree! so many times i've found ridiculously great deals - $12 theory trousers, etc. - which makes all the times i've spent $40 on a knit top insane.

My best tip is to seek out the thrift stores in the swankiest neighborhoods. That's where I've always snagged my best finds!

You know you shop at thrift stores too much when you go to Old Navy and think 16$ for a pair of jeans!? No freaking way. I could get them at Value Village for 7$!

I'm a HUGE fan of Old Navy. Most of my kids' wardrobe comes from there. They're awesome, cute, and well priced.

And me with no Old Navy anywhere to be found. Oh well, maybe they'll build one soon. I'll just have to forgo your gift this year.
