Our Mini Family: 9 Must Haves for Thrift Store Shopping



If I had to guess how many times I had gone thrift shopping within the last month, I would say I have been at least 10 times. I've found thrift shopping can be somewhat therapeutic for me, as I really enjoy window shopping and when I occasionally find something I desperately want to buy my credit card thanks me for the smaller price tags! 


Adam and I have spent many Sunday afternoons shopping around our neighborhood thrift stores--so much so we decided it counts as a date night! But if you're going to get serious about thrift store shopping and you want to do it effectively in order to get the best deals with a small budget, there are a number of essential items you will need to have with you before you go thrift shopping. 


Today, I'm sharing my list of must have items to take with you when you go thrift store shopping!

Must Haves for Thrift Store Shopping

#1 Measuring Tape

Almost all of the large furniture in our home has come from a thrift store. When we first moved in, the first few things I bought when I moved to Arizona included measuring tape and an essential toolkit. A day or two after we moved in (with nothing in our possession except a few suitcases), I grabbed a pen and paper and took some quick measurements of our doorway/entrances around our home and then went off to the thrift store with my measuring tape and my measurements. 


Knowing just how wide your doorway/hallways are will help you make your furniture shopping just that much more effective (and not to mention headache-free!) Adam and I have been able to score loads of furniture at extremely discounted prices thanks to thrift shopping, including our dining room table, all of the furniture in Adam's office, our tables, bookshelves, entertainment center, oversized mirrors, and our living room couch!


#2 Hand Sanitizer

Most of the time, people do not go thrift shopping because they're not a huge fan of germs. And I'd be lying if I said thrift shopping is glamorous!


Over time, I've learned which thrift shops are generally cleaner and have higher quality inspections upon the items coming in for donations. But sometimes, you face moments while thrift shopping where you find yourself desperately searching for some hand sanitizer. Don't even give it a second though--just grab a small, travel size bottle and stow it away in your bag until you need it.
