Thrifty Philosophy

the_thrifty_philosophy

We don't want to assume that there is a one-size-fits-all Thrifty Philosophy, but we thought we would point out a few highlights of our own:

  • Why pay full price when you can get your needs at a fraction of the cost?
  • Nobody likes waste and second-hand shopping is the essence of maximizing an itemís value!
  • Be an individual and stay unique with your style. After all, nobody wants to be in a "Who wore it better" situation with a coworker or friend who bought the same exact clothes as you!
  • Help others! Rather than padding the pockets of big-wig executives, help out those less fortunate in our CNY community, all while looking great!

Now that we have shared some of our thoughts, it's your turn! What's your Thrifty Philosophy? Email us at ishopthrifty@rmsyr.org and read more from fellow shoppers below!
