New to Consignment or Thrift Shops?

I’ve always enjoyed shopping at consignment shops or thrift shops.  However, I get that many people are put off by the thought of buying used clothes.  If you are one of those people, check out this article at MSN Money’s Smart Spending blog:  18 Top Tips For Buying Used Clothes.  Written by J.D. Roth of Get Rich Slowly, the article offers excellent tips for getting used to the unique experience of shopping in thrift and consignment shops, and highlights the benefits of such shopping.  If you’ve never shopped a thrift store, now might be the right time to start.  Your wallet will thank you!
