It's hard to make a case against being thrifty -- it's fun, eco-friendly, and an easy way to save. When I go to my hometown of Muskegon, MI my frugality kicks in and I hit all my favorite thrift shops. I indulge in well-conditioned 2nd-hand dresses, accessories, and shoes galore.
People often ask me what favorite places to thrift are so I'm sharing my list. Next time you're on Michigan's West Coast stop by these stores and let me know what treasures you pick!
