1 – PATIENCE
There is nothing like looking for one campaign dresser for six months and never being able to find it. It’s just like Bigfoot, you know he exists. You’ve seen photos, you have just never seen him in person. But, when you do lay your eyes on one for a reasonable price, it’s one of the best feelings in the world!
There are several times in life we need patience, no matter how quick we want our tags ow how eager we are to get the results, we must be patient.
What will be, shall be. 😉
A few things you have to think about. While you may not have a use for it now, will you perhaps have a use for it later? If you do, should you buy it now? Do you have the space to store it, until you need it? Will you need it? So many questions!
In life, we have to make important and non-important decisions. “Should I buy those shoes during the big sale? Will that take-away money from my savings I am building a new home?
It might seem small, but thrifting is great for major problems solving in everyday life.
3 -SEEING BEYOND, WHAT SOMETHING IS AND WHAT IT CAN BE
When you take something such as an old date statue and turn it into an amazing lamp, you are doing a lot better than most people who thrift. Many times I have grabbed something and transformed it into something similar to a very expensive piece. Seeing what something can be is a positive attribute of thrifting.
4 – NEGOTIATION
Just think, if you are at a flea market and you see something you like, you may be inclined to negotiate with the seller. If the seller is desperate to sell, then it may work, if not, then.. at least we tried.
5 – CREATIVITY
OK, maybe you probably thought I was going to end telling you that you save lots of money, but you know, being creative helps in life by allowing you to see things just a bit different. It’s the most important tip, between eating a Popsicle and eat a Popsicle and then creating art with the pop sticks.
