Getting Thrifty on Giving Tuesday

            Christmas is just around the corner.  Thoughts of new games, clothes and gadgets are on everyone’s mind.  It’s time to make room for all of the new things.  Out with the old and in with the new as it were. 

            With “Giving Tuesday” only a few days away, now would be a great time to go through your house, box up the things you don’t use and take them to the thrift shop of your choice.  It could be the Salvation Army or Goodwill.  Things you don’t have a need for could be useful to someone else.  One man’s trash is another man’s treasure after all. 

            On the flipside, for donated goods to earn money for charities they have to move off of the shelf.  There are a myriad of thrift shops for different charities.  The Salvation Army and Goodwill do not have the corner market.  Find one you like and go shopping.  You could find the perfect Christmas decoration for your house at a minimal cost.  If you’re a garage saler and you miss the season, head on over to your nearest thrift store and know that your money is going to help someone.
